Fidget spinners, which are toys used by children of schoolage, became very popular in 2017. During normal use, they are in direct and prolonged contact with the skin on the hands. Fidget spinners may have metals parts, and therefore represent a potential source of metal contact allergy and thus allergic contact dermatitis. The aim of this study was to screen a random selection of fidget spinners on the Danish market for nickel and cobalt release.
