Fidget spinners have taken over schools in Ireland as the newest must-have toy. 

They were originally designed to help children with ADHD to concentrate, but children everywhere have been taken with the new gadget. 

The demand for the toys has risen exceptionally over the last few weeks, and will only continue to grow.

The Competition and Consumer Protection Commission (CCPC) seized approximately 110,000 fidget spinners yesterday, the Irish Independent reports.

The toys did not meet the EU Safety Standards, after finding some fidget spinners that had parts that could easily dislodge and danger children.
