Holiday Showcase took place in New York City, Tuesday, September 26, 2017.

Also called a "giggle ball", the toy is described as having textured bumps for gripping, along with orange, green and yellow rubber knobs.

Toys R Us has recalled almost 30,000 wiggle balls that could pose a choking hazard for infants.

The Consumer Product Safety Commission says the retailer has received six reports of the rubber knobs breaking off, including four reports of the pieces found in children's mouths.

About 29,700 wiggle balls were sold between June 2016 and January 2017, with 3,000 of those sold in Canadian stores. They were manufactured in China, and have the model number "5F6342E" printed on them.
