A fidget spinner is a toy that consists of a ball bearing in the center of a multi-lobed flat structure made from metal or plastic designed to spin along its axis with little effort. Fidget spinners became popular toys in 2017, although similar devices had been invented as early as 1993.
The fidget-spinner craze has taken off due to the toy’s immediately addictive nature. The sensation that comes from holding a fast-spinning contraption is a large part of its appeal. As you tilt it back and forth while it whirrs, you can feel the various spinning forces undulate in your hand.
Fidget spinners are advertised to increase concentration and attention to academic tasks. Past research suggests that hyperactive movements, such as fidgeting, improve performance on attention tasks in children with attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD).
