Boy hospitalised after fidget spinner mishap

All the rage... Fidget spinners

All the rage... Fidget spinners

There is a new concern for kids after several are sent to the hospital due to their fidget spinners.

The boy was rushed to a Sydney hospital after swallowing part of the fidget spinner.

The child was playing with the spinner when one of its disc's "flew off", his mother, who was not identified, posted to Facebook yesterday.

"The side of the spinner was cracked and when he spun it, the disc flew in his mouth and before he realised, he swallowed it".

An x-ray showed the circular disc in the boy's stomach.

"Our son swallowed the disc of a fidget spinner last night & ended up at RNSH Emergency", she told the North Shore Mums Facebook group on Sunday. "He has to pass it within two days or we're looking at alternative methods of extraction".

It comes just months after a United States girl almost choked after part after the fidget spinner became lodged in her oesophagus.

Doctors say there are now smaller fidget spinners on the market that are also considered unsafe for kids.

Just when you thought she had done it all, Kim Kardashian released her own fidget spinner.

While the toy has been spruiked as useful tools for children with ADHD and autism, there are reports Australians schools are banning them as they are distracting students and teachers.
