In addition, the CPSC advises parents to have working smoke alarms in the house in case of a fire and be present when all products with batteries are charging. In addition, it recommends never to charge a product with batteries overnight while you are sleeping and always unplug the fidget spinner immediately once the toy is fully charged.
Fidget spinners are primarily intended for children under 12, but the CPSC advises parents to keep them away from children under 3, as they have small pieces, including batteries that can be a choking hazard. Choking, incidents, it said, have been reported with children up to age 14. For this reason, the CPSC warns children of all ages not to put fidget spinners or toys with small pieces in their mouths and not to play with these toys near their faces.
