Fidget Spinner

What's up with all this talk about the fidget spinner?

A fidget toy!

The fidget spinner started out as something low key to help kids with attention disorders. The thought behind it is that when you have something to occupy your hands that it will improve concentration.

But...these things went mainstream and now we are seeing them everywhere! They come in different colors, patterns and materials. Some are made of silicone, some are plastic and even aluminum. I saw an LED version!

This toy has become rather controversial. Some schools have even banned fidget spinners. They are visually distracting and can be noisy. I think they are pretty cool looking - like this one.

Is there more to this? Maybe it's part of a larger trend.

Have you heard of fidget cubes? Here's one....

They also come in all kinds of shapes and colors. They look like dice and have different ways you can distract yourself. Press, flick, click, spin, rub, roll and glide to your hearts desire - they are supposed to relieve nervous energy and increase your peace. For adults too - not just for kids.

How much is there to say - it's something you have to try for yourself.

This one  even comes with a 2 Year Limited Warranty!

Happy Fidgeting!
