Authorities Release New Report Confirming Fidget Spinners Can Kill Your Child

on

New warning for the latest fad, fidget spinners, if you’re not cautious they could kill your child!

These fidget spinners were originally meant for children with ADD/ADHD and other disabilities to help them stay calm and focus while at school. Now we are seeing them EVERYWHERE, children are using them as toys and they are being banned from schools because of the growing popularity and distraction of every kid having one.

Should your child have one of these toys? Now it’s not just a question of your child struggling with ADD or ADHD but a safety issue. Keep reading to be sure your kids are safe.

From The Federalist Papers:

It seems the gadgets, which employ ball bearings and balanced blades inside plastic casing to spin, have been found in some cases to contain dangerous amounts of lead and mercury.

All fidget spinners? Of course not. The problem, though, is that there are no patents governing who can and can’t manufacture them, and little-to-no way to confirm which ones are made under quality controls and which ones are from places like China where anything goes.

AFF’s Brett MacDonald notes:

Just last week, 200,000 units of of the popular toy were seized by EU customs officials for failing to adhere to the health standards set by the Union.

AFF also cites Tamara Rubin, an anti-lead-poisoning activist, who tested several fidget spinner samples:

Two were lead-free, but one had very high levels of lead and some mercury. She then disassembled a fidget spinner with LED lights and found both lead and mercury. She found 19,000 parts per million (ppm) of lead and 1,000 ppm of mercury.

This is a very dangerous level of lead and mercury. Parent’s be very careful about where you’re buying your fidget spinners from, if you decide to get one. If you bought from China, I suggest you throw them out now!

I have an even better idea, ban products from China until they comply with our manufacturing laws! Or would that be considered a religious ban by the Ninth Circuit? Hahaha!
