(WBNG Binghamton) Edushape Ltd., of Deer Park, N.Y. has recalled about 18,000 Mini Stars building sets.

Plastic knobs can break from the center of the stars, posing a choking hazard to young children.

Two reports were given, where the knobs broke off from the center of the stars. No injuries have been reported.

Additional star building sets were recalled in September 2010.

The Mini Stars measure three inches in diameter and are made of opaque plastic.

Each star has six circular knobs protruding from a ring-shaped center.

Edushape only makes Mini Stars in red, green, yellow or blue colors which are included in this recall.

The Mini Stars do not have any markings, codes or logos stamped into the plastic.

They were sold in sets of 12, 24, 36, 48 and 72 pieces.

They were sold at small retail stores nationwide, online at Toys R Us.com, Amazon.com and CSN on walmart.com from January 2007 through December 2009 for between $10 and $50.

Consumers should immediately take the recalled Mini Star building sets away from children and contact Edushape for a free replacement set or credit towards another Edushape product of equal or lesser value.

The company can be reached at (800) 404-4744 between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m. ET Monday through Friday, or online at www.edushape.com
