Not long ago in the USA, an explosive hand spinner case attracted the attention of the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC). The agency is currently looking into the case of this toy, some models of which are particularly dangerous. For the youngest especially, who seem to be the first users.
A hand spinner, or fidget spinner, is a toy that you may have already seen. It is a sort of disc that has twisted the branches. Its popularity has exploded in recent months and manufacturers have invented it of all kinds. One finds for example hand spinner Bluetooth to diffuse the music of its smartphone via the loudspeaker and equipped with LED on Cdiscount or Amazon at very low prices.
Cheap and dangerous products
The quality of these products is not always there. One child reported that his hand spinner caught fire and exploded after 40 minutes of charge. A generic of poor quality, with questionable materials and equipped with Bluetooth whose battery was defective. With products with a battery sold sometimes under 4 €, one should not expect miracles rated reliability.
An investigation was initiated by the CPSC. Until a product recall action is initiated, the agency encourages parents to take safety measures, such as staying close to the device in charge.
