*I am including my affiliate link for the fidgets I can find on Amazon, however given the unpredictability of these products and the lack of oversight and regulatory enforcement I cannot guarantee that a future purchase of the same or similar item will have the same lead levels, so please (in the case of fidget spinners) do not consider this an endorsement by me – just a way for you to continue your research / learn more in a more direct way about the product.  In each of these tests all accessible parts were tested and they were not disassembled.  If a spinner easily came apart or was broken, we tested the inner parts as well as the exterior.  Please see my fidget spinner testing videos to watch (in real-time / filmed live on camera) the testing that was done for each spinner.

Note: If I do not list readings for Cadmium (Cd), Mercury (Hg) and Arsenic (As) that means it was also non-detect/ negative for those elements.

In general these simple plastic fidgets tend to be either negative for lead or within “acceptable levels” by both U.S. and European standards.  Please understand that they still may present a choking hazard to young children (as well as other potential hazards) – especially children with special needs who might have a greater tendency to put things in their mouth (regardless of their age.)

    I chose this fidget spinner because it was plain black and had a company logo on it, which to me increases the odds that someone cares about product safety. I paid $14.99. https://www.amazon.com/XDesign-Spinner-Reducer-Premium-XD000026/dp/B0713QC1B7/ref=sr_1_1
