More than 21 million Miniverse "Make It Mini" sets, which feature mini toy appliances and "food" items that are packaged in a sphere, are being recalled for potentially hazardous resins, according to the Consumer Product Safety Commission. 

The CPSC announced the recall on June 25, which includes "Make It Mini Appliances," as well as all models and series of "Make It Mini Food," and "Make It Mini Lifestyle."

The recalled Make It Mini sets contain resins that, when in liquid form, "can cause skin, eye, and respiratory irritation or sensitization when inhaled, touched, or ingested by children or adults," the agency warned. 

The resins contain acrylates in amounts prohibited in children’s products by the Federal Hazardous Substances Act. After the resins cure, they no longer present a hazard, the CPSC said.

MGA Entertainment, of Chatsworth, California, said it has received 26 reports of incidents with the product, including skin burns and irritation, and respiratory irritation – with one report that a consumer’s asthma was triggered, the notice said. 

Make it Mini sets recalled: What to know

Most sets consist of a sphere which contains the materials required to assemble the intended miniature imitation "appliance," "food," or "lifestyle" items, according to the CPSC. 

The resin packaging in each set may imitate food items such as a peanut butter jar, maple syrup, or milk container. The resins, when hardened, imitate food. 

About 21 million sets have been recalled in the U.S., in addition to about 1 million in Canada.

The toys were sold at Target, Walmart, Family Dollar, Dollar General, ALDI, Hobby Lobby and other stores nationwide and online at,,, and other sites between October 2022 and June 2024, the CPSC said. 

They ranged in price between $7 and $13 for sphere sets sold individually. Sets were also sold in a box for about $14 to $52, depending on the model.

The sphere consists of a disposable wrapper bearing "MGA’s Miniverse" on a yellow burst background and "Make It Appliances," or "Make It Mini Food," in bright pink or "Make It Mini Lifestyle" in salmon pink. 

The sets packaged in spheres can also be sold as bundles with multiple units. The "Kitchen", "Multipack", "All You Can Eat", "Ice Cream Social", and "Pizza Party" sets come in dedicated boxes with similar labeling without spheres, the agency noted. 

The item number and the UPC code are printed on the back side of the wrapper.
