The fidget spinner is a toy that has just recently become very popular. It is a small handheld device that comes in many different materials, styles, colors, and designs. The fidget spinner has a center with spokes around it that are able to continuously spin around the center for impressive amounts of time. They don’t only come in different styles, but in prices as well. There are very nice and expensive spinners compared to inexpensive ones that can be purchased at the local 7-11. They are available in all types of stores and markets in many different locations. These toys have been purchased by people of all ages looking for a new fun device to use.

The inventor of the fidget spinner is Catherine Hettinger, who went to an engineering and tech school  for college. She invented this device about two decades ago, but it has just recently taken the country by storm. The new toy has been promoted as a device that helps with autism, concentration, and decreases both anxiety and stress. The device has been described as both mesmerizing and relaxing as many people around the country buy it for different reasons. The toy has both been used as a fun device to play with, and a serious agent in helping people deal with stress. The fidget spinner has become very popular in the past few months and is now on the amazon top twenty best sellers for toys and games. The price range for the spinner is from two dollars to a thousand dollars, so there is a wide range in quality for the spinner as well. It is nice that there are cheaper spinners that are easy to get. Because of their availability to many different types of people around the U.S., people have not only been spinning this new device, but they have started doing tricks, and finding new fun uses for the gadget. Even though many people love the spinner, it has not been a positive experience for everyone. It has been reported that the toy is very disruptive in schools, even band from some school, and that it can cause pretty serious injuries. Some people don’t even think the spinner helps in calming someone down. The production of this toy has been very high recently because the patent wore off, and now, anyone can produce it.

Even though there have been mixed emotions about the fidget spinner, it has been a great success. It is widely popular, and enjoyed by many. This new device is very unique and many people look forward to what new trends will come about next in the toy industry.
