Product name Trio Water Timer and Water Timer
Description The Trio Water Timer has 3 separate plastic tubes, each measuring 5 inches tall and 1.5 inches in diameter, which are divided into two compartments by clear plastic shelves. The base and top of the timer are pink and yellow plastic. When the timer is turned upside down, liquid flows between the two compartments through a spout in the center diver. The center tube contains a pink honey-like substance, and the outer tubes contain either a green or blue liquid. Some of the Trio Timers come with figures of a basketball, soccer ball, baseball, and football attached to spinning wheels inside the tubes. The Water Timer has two separate rectangular cells that each measure 4.75 inches tall and 1.5 inches wide and contain either red or blue liquid. A clear plastic spout divides each cell into two compartments. Each compartment contains a yellow plastic wheel with a black and white spiral design on the outside. When the timer is turned upside down, the colored liquids fall through the spout and spin the wheels. 
Problem The toys contain ethylene glycol and petroleum distillates, which are considered combustible and hazardous to children if ingested
