Kimberly Allums told WBRC that her son "noticed that it burst into flames and he just started screaming". The only problem?

"I personally won't buy another one because of the fear of it", she continued.
Allums said the spinner had been charging for less than 45 minutes. With the speed that toys become popular and mass-produced these days, it's increasingly the case that the batteries inside don't have numerous necessary safety features.
