WASHINGTON, D.C. – The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) is warning consumers to immediately stop using Chiwanji Vertical Box Hammer Case Hammer Toys because the small balls pose a choking hazard to young children. 

CPSC testing determined the hammer toys contain small balls that are prohibited small parts and that are banned for children under three years of age because they are a choking hazard.

CPSC issued a Notice of Violation to the seller, Chiwanji, of China, but the firm has not agreed to recall these hammer toys or offer a remedy to consumers. Consumers who purchased the product will receive this notice directly.   

The hammer toys were sold online at in 2023 for about $10. The product consists of a wooden square with four holes, four small balls, and a wooden pounding mallet. The holes in the wooden square are color-coded to match the red, yellow, green and blue balls. There are no markings on the product. The product was sold in a yellow box with the title “Vertical Box” and “Hammer Case.”

CPSC urges consumers to immediately take these products away from children and dispose of them.
