Is this a false widow?

Hi,

 

I found this spider upstairs in my bathroom. Just wondering if it is a false widow. Was a little worries as my children were wanted to play with it.

 

Many thanks,

    I think this is Steatoda nobilis. I'm not totally sure because it's not the clearest photo and the markings aren't quite typical (if there is anything typical about this species). No, don't let your children play with it but don't get paranoid either - many people live alongside them without mishap.
