State inspectors want to make sure visitors don't get ripped off on New Jersey's boardwalks over the July 4th holiday.

They also don't want children to buy Yo-Yo waterballs. A recent state law banned the sale of the toy because it is a choke hazard.

Officials swept along the boardwalk in the Wildwoods Tuesday and seized 63 toys on sale at three stores.

They also found 17 pricing violations and nine violations for games of chance.

Previous sweeps were conducted in Point Pleasant, Seaside Heights and Atlantic City.
