Fidget spinners a potential threat, says New England toy safety group”

The group then get inside each auto and attempt to spin their creation to replicate the traditional fidget spinner experience.

The consumer watchdog group "World Against Toys Causing Harm" has named fidget spinners among the possible summer toy and plaything hazards for kids this year.

Fidget spinners have been lauded for their "therapeutic" effects, but a consumer watchdog group is warning parents that the viral gadget is one of the most risky toys of the summer.

W.A.T.C.H. reported children in Texas and OR have been taken to hospitals recently after choking on fidget spinner pieces. W.A.T.C.H.'s list highlights potentially hazardous items that parents should avoid. They say a girl in Texas choked while playing with a Fidget device and had to have a part of the toy removed from her esophagus.

"It is a tragedy when a child dies but when that death could have been prevented it's inexcusable", Siff said.

Last year's hot toy, hoverboards with rechargeable batteries, could literally overheat and cause house fires, and WATCH included the toys in its warning for this summer as well.
