Everywhere that you look, you are sure to see a kid with a Fidget Spinner. The Springs HOTTEST toy has taken over– at every checkout at every store you will see them! Personally, I don’t understand the whole point. The claim is that it helps individuals with ADHD, Anxiety and Autism. As an anxiety suffer, it tends to make me more anxious but, I have read research that shows there is no doubt that it helps those suffering with Autism. Maybe it works for some with these disorders, I can only speak to mine. I consider it a toy–with no benefit, other than to keep their hands busy!
Nonetheless, I have nothing against them but, find some pleasure in knowing I made it a few months without being sucked into the latest frenzy. However, my days are numbered before I join the craze. Last night, my daughter, added this fidget spinner to the top of her birthday wishlist. Which is really a good thing because you can easily get a fidget spinner for under $10.
What are your thoughts on the fidget spinner? We would love to hear what you think!
