What is a Fidget spinner?
A fidget spinner is a type of fidget toy first created back in the 90’s. The structure and design is usually similar to a palm sized ceiling fan with a middle bearing and three arms. Due to its small size, the toy could be played without anyone noticing it and without bothering anyone. They’re extremely simple to use. All you have to do is hold the middle bearing between two fingers and spin with the other hand or fingers – extremely satisfying and soothing to look at. The product is now widespread and available in different models, colors, finishes, materials, and different shapes.
Why are they so popular?
The reason is probably because of a mix of all the benefits the spinners bring. Everyone in the world has at some point dealt with some stress, feelings of anxiety, or needed to improve focus/concentration. That’s why these toys are so popular now, since they work so well and are so cheap. Others theorize that the success of the kickstarter campaign for the fidget cube made the fidget toys popular and brought them back essentially. Nonetheless, the fidget spinner has blown up like no other toy before and makes up most of Amazon’s best seller list due to huge demand. The toy can be seen in every child’s hand and more so adults as time goes on, since they’re great to play with and make for great gifts for all ages.
Are fidgets just a trend that will fade?
Nobody can say for sure, but for now they’re the trendiest thing out. People may forget about them more as time goes on, but they’ll never really be gone since people will always struggle with focusing and stress. Who knows, perhaps the fidget cubes may take over spinners with some tweaks here and there, or some other toy with benefits will come along and catch the eyes of everyone. For now, the fidget spinner is the best toy out there for all ages and is a must have item for 2017.
