Magnetix kits were discontinued and a voluntary recall for the toys was put into effect in 2006 by the manufacturing company, Mega Brands Inc. These toys are considered a hazard for young children because the magnetic pieces can cause intestinal distress or death if they are swallowed. If you purchased a kit prior to the recall or found a Magnetix kit in a thrift store, you can easily create simple models with your Magnetix.
