In this article we will discuss about toy which is called spinners that is very popular lately. According to the survey is found that the toy can be a dangerous source of toxic pollutants that pass through the hands of children.
According to studies spinners are made of ball bearings and balanced blades that are manufactured abroad and whose quality is checked. This toy may contain large amounts of lead if it is produced in China.
This warning still can not stop the production of this toy. It can be produced which wants.
Here’s what advocates had to say:
Rubin, an independent lead poisoning prevention advocate, first tested three fidget spinners sent to her by a friend with an XRF instrument. 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.
These numbers are sobering and scientists consider under 90 ppm of lead to be the safe threshold in children’s toys, according to Rubin. But the paint on the LED light spinner contained 334 ppm of lead and 155 ppm of mercury in one test. The unpainted metal base contained 1,562 ppm of mercury and 2,452 ppm of lead.
Rubin later tested six fidget spinners and found the $ 31 from Yomaxer contained 42.800 ppm of lead. She noted ordinary consumers will not have access to XRF instrument, which can cost around $ 50,000. She recommends avoiding fussy spinners available for purchase and instead of making your own, such as fidget factory out of Legos.
Last week 200,000 pieces spinners were seized by customs officers at the EU.
Therefore parents should take certain measures for their children and be careful what toys they buy in order to be safe.
