Was The Miniverse Recalled?

Yes. On June 25, 2024, about 21 million units of MGA Miniverse Make It Mini Sets were recalled in the US (plus around 1 million in Canada) because the liquid resins contained acrylates. These hazardous liquids can cause burns and skin or respiratory irritation (such as asthma). (1)(2)

According to the recall announcement issued by MGA and the CPSC (Consumer Product Safety Commission), the acrylates in these toys were present in amounts that exceeded the Federal Hazardous Substances Act’s limits for children’s products. These chemicals were identified as follows: (1)(2)

  • HEMA (Hydroxyethyl methacrylate)
  • IBOA (Isobornyl acrylate)


These substances can cause irritation or burns when in liquid form. However, the company and the CPSC explained that the hazard is no longer present once the resin cures or hardens. (1)(2)

The toy recall was initiated after MGA received 26 reports of burns and skin irritation incidents from children and adults. There was also one report of a consumer’s asthma triggered by the resin. (1)(2)


Which MGA Miniverse Toys Were Recalled?



This product recall includes all Miniverse Make It Mini Sets that have unused liquid resins. These include toys from the following: (1)(2)

  • “Make It Mini Appliances” sets (yellow burst background packaging)
  • “Make It Mini Food” models and series (bright pink packaging)
  • “Make It Mini Lifestyle” models and series (salmon pink packaging)


These toy sets, usually packed in individual disposable wrappers, contain materials for kids to assemble the intended items, such as food, appliances, or lifestyle objects. (1)(2)

The packs contain resin that supposedly imitates different food items, including milk in containers, maple syrup, and peanut butter in a jar. (1)(2)

Here’s an example: (1)



All the affected individual packs and multi-pack series have the “MGA’s Miniverse” logo and the specific product names for “Make It Appliances,” “Make It Mini Food,” or “Make It Mini Lifestyle” on the plastic packaging. (1)(2)

Some sets are also packed in boxes without spheres but have the same labeling as the toys above. Examples include: (1)(2)

  • “All You Can Eat”
  • “Kitchen”
  • “Ice Cream Social”
  • “Pizza Party”
  • “Multipack”


How Do I Know If My Child’s MGA Miniverse Products Are Included In The Recall?

All lots of the MGA Miniverse Make It Mini sets and individual packs are included in this recall. You can check the UPCs (Universal Product Codes) and the item number printed on the back of the wrapper or the back of the box. (1)(2)
