it seems like every year or even ever month they have a new toy. something that needs to be bought by everyone.
they are toys to help those focus on a task at hand. unfortunately I think it just distracts me more. I don’t pay attention to anything but the spinner.
they come in all different styles and colors.
you can get them pretty cheap, about $5 at the store or as less at .50 online.
even though they seem to be the in toy right now… they are driving me crazy. at the field trip on Friday, all I heard the whole time is how everyone wanted to go to the gift shop to buy a spinner. didn’t hear anything about the trip, just the fidget spinners. I found out from one of the teachers that she hates them. she actually has a nice collection of them at school from the kids.
they bother me because they are constantly out and about when you want your kid to be paying attention. I made the mistake of letting him take it when we went for our walk for relay for life. I saw it come out a couple times when walking and told him to put it away or I’ll throw it away. drastic I know since I’m the one that bought it lol.
I would like to know why they are so cool? i tried it out and I don’t think it helped me concentrate any better. I wasn’t really paying attention to anything other than the spinner. I felt obsessed with it. is that the point?
how can something so small and simple be such a big deal to the kids right now??!
