Approximately 300 of these Skill Ball
wooden toys have been recalled due
to excessive lead paint.

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission and Health Canada, in cooperation with Kendamaspot LLC of Redmond, WA, announced a voluntary recall of approximately 300 wooden skill ball toys.

According to CPSC, the surface paint coating on the ball contains excessive levels of lead, violating the federal lead paint standard. No incidents or injuries have been reported.

The products, made in Japan, were sold at Kendamaspot’s Web site and cultural festivals in Washington State from July 2008 through April 2009 for about $20.

Consumers are urged to immediately take the recalled toys away from children and contact Kendamaspot to receive a free replacement ball.
