Mary Richards, KSL Newsradio A 6-year-old Utah boy now has to find something else to buy after his birthday present is suddenly recalled.
Stone Pollack got Aqua Dots, the only present he wanted. Now, his parents are rushing to return the potentially dangerous toy.
Rick Pollack, Stone's father, spreads out the tiny colored beads on the kitchen counter. "These are the dreaded Aqua Dots," Rick says. "It was the only thing he wanted."
Stone picked out the Aqua Dots and bought them with his birthday money. Then next day, his parents learned of the recall and had to take the toys away. "He was just so upset, thought that he had done something wrong," Rick said.
Now they are trying to find something else. Perhaps a toy camera Stone has been eying.
The Pollacks say they just can't risk Stone, or their pets, getting poisoned from the tiny toys.
