Water beads were especially high as children thought they were candy and swallowed them, and since the human body’s mostly made up of water, the balls trapped inside the body expanded, leading to severe dehydration and significant injuries treated only by surgery.

Since they were so dangerous, they were recalled. - Gregory
Marbles are small round objects and many children can’t distinguish small round colorful toys from candy, so they swallow them and choke.

Yet a death along the way further proved the dangers of magnetix, so they were eventually recalled. - Gregory
Bindeez, whether you call them beadies, aqua dots, or pixos, are small little balls, and small equals choking hazard.
