Various toys and games have always gone in phases -skipping, French skipping, jacks, certain ball games, rubik cubes, and so on.
Right now, “Fidget spinners” are really popular – but are you aware of their hidden danger?
A powerful message from Katrina Phillips of the Child Accident Prevention Trust (CAPT), tells us that many of the fidget spinners actually have LED lights around the edges, and that these lights are powered by our old friends, none other than button batteries.
Now we are putting potential killers into our children’s hands…….so please make sure that the battery covers are on securely, and are tamper proof.
I have attached a picture taken to illustrate what happens to a child’s internal organs if they swallow a lithium button battery – scary, I think that you would agree.
