KUWAIT CITY, June 14: With the start of the sum­mer hol­i­day, the Min­istry of Ed­u­ca­tion warned par­ents and guardians of chil­dren in nurs­eries and lower pri­mary level about the risks posed by the mag­netic bead (ball) toy which was banned in var­i­ous coun­tries due to se­ri­ous health risks for chil­dren.

In the same con­text, Far­waniya Ed­u­ca­tional Dis­trict Direc­tor Jassem Bo­hamad re­quested cir­cu­la­tion of the warn­ing to schools es­pe­cially the lower level schools, given that the Depart­ment of School Health Pro­gram is­sued warn­ings about the toy which is also known as ‘Buck­y­balls Mag­nets’ as it is a very se­ri­ous health haz­ard in case it is swal­lowed; hence, many coun­tries have banned it.
