I know I’m about three months late to the party, but I just got my first fidget spinner a couple of weeks ago. This thing is awesome! I am a fidgety person. When I am sitting at my desk I usually have something out to mess with while I tinker around on the computer. I don’t know… it helps me think, or it helps me procrastinate.
The one I purchased consists of four ball bearings. One on each post and one in the middle. The one in the middle has a plastic cap to get a better grip on. The other three don’t seem to serve much purpose except to grab on the the end and dangle the thing.
According to the Wikipedia article “The toy has been advertised as helping people who have trouble with focusing or fidgeting by relieving nervous energy or psychological stress. As of May 2017, there is no scientific evidence that they are effective as a treatment for autism or ADHD.” But, I don’t need scientific evidence, this thing is awesome.
I got one on Amazon here.
