Now Fidget Spinners are Under a Safety Alert

Fidget Spinners, the biggest waste of time since the internet, and who ever thought they could be dangerous? (Umm, this guy!)

The obvious safety hazard is small parts and choking hazards. BUT WAIT THERES MORE! (In my best infomercial voice!)

Now they have speakers, lights and other fun items that include batteries. And those batteries are the ultimate problem.

Those lithium batteries can catch fire or explode when you least expect them to do so.

The US Consumer Product Safety Commission has the following safety tips for you:

Fidget spinners and children:

  • Keep fidget spinners away from children under 3 years of age.
  • The plastic and metal spinners have small pieces (including batteries) that can be a choking hazard. Choking incidents involving children up to age 14 have been reported.
  • Warn children of all ages not to put fidget spinners or small pieces in their mouths and not to play with the fidget spinner near their faces.

Battery-operated fidget spinners:

  • Have working smoke alarms in your house to protect you if there is a fire.
  • Be present when products with batteries are charging.
  • Never charge a product with batteries overnight while you are sleeping.
  • Always use the cable that came with the fidget spinner.
  • If the fidget spinner did not come with a cable, make sure to use one with the correct connections for charging.
  • Unplug your fidget spinner immediately once it is fully charged.
