The first time I saw fidget spinner was in google app store where there are many kinds of apps game related to the spinner. The second time was when it was part of a game in a daily noon-time show in our country. The fidget spinner photo was shown to three elderly people and asked what's the name of the thing. No one knows what it is. The third time was when I saw an actual one in the arms of my son VJ. He was playing it by spinning as fast as he can. The fidget spinner is made of metal and alloy and has a balance that when it spins it is so smooth and last long. There are many styles and designs of fidget spinner now. Kids want to have this because its the 'in' toy now in them.

We have one and I don't understand what's fun with the thing. It looks like an ordinary toy to me.

I have seen them... but I honestly can't see the logic. I think that I would be bored in 2 minutes flat. I guess they are like pet rocks... which I can see more use for lol!

If I still taught, retired now, I bet I would have had to take away many a fidget spinner in class. I have never seen one in action, but I can imagine it is an addictive toy.

Analysts testing a wide cluster of the well known kids’ toys known squirm spinners have found a disturbing measure of lethal contaminants that may demonstrate fatal in the hands of children crosswise over America. The spinners, which utilize ballbearings and adjusted cutting edges to pivot, are frequently created abroad in nations that don’t execute strict quality controls. Presently, scientists have said that the toys may contain perilous measures of lead on the off chance that they’re being acquired from spots like China.

I heard about it and saw a variety of it on social medias. It is said to be a stress reliever. I don't know... Though it is said to be popular nowadays, this spinner thing hasn't found its way to our household, yet.
