The Dangers of Fidget Spinners
Fidget spinners pose several dangers to children. They contain small parts, which can be easily swallowed and lodged in a victim’s throat. A choking hazard sign is often not on the fidget spinner packaging as well. In addition, some children have sustained face and eye injuries from throwing the fidget spinners in the air.
CPSC Fidget Spinner Safety Tips
When playing with fidget spinners, follow these safety precautions to promote maximum safety:
- Do not allow children younger than three to play with fidget spinners.
- Make sure all children are aware not to put fidget spinners in their mouth or by their faces.
Battery operated fidget spinners can pose even more threats. If you have battery operated fidget spinners make sure you:
- Stay close by while the fidget spinners are charging
- Use the correct cable to charge it
- When the fidget spinner is charged, unplug it right away
- Ensure the smoke alarms in your home work properly
