Hello. Thanks for the question. These markers are pretty much non-toxic. The biggest issue would be an obstruction if enough plastic was ingested. As long as they were small enough pieces, they should pass on their own. If she starts vomiting or stops eating, then I would get x-rays to rule out an obstruction. If that happens, it's removed surgically. I think the chances are pretty unlikely, though. I hope this helps, let me know if you have any other questions.
