Doctors say kids have needed surgery after swallowing metal pieces that fall off or can be pulled off the spinners.

A Sydney mother has sent a dire warning to fellow parents after her son was hospitalised after swallowing part of a 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 child wasd then taken to the emergency section of the Royal North Shore Hospital after a plastic disc came off the fad-spinner.

She also went-on to say "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".


The scan clearly shows the spinner's circular disc in the boy's stomach.

A fidget spinner is a toy that is marketed as relieving stress.

"Although the number of trending videos related to fidget toys has begun to level off, the two best days for fidget spinner content in terms of views were in June", it says.

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.

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