Fidget spinners are the new toy fad. Almost every kid I see on the street is playing with one.
What are fidget spinners?
Fidget spinners are small, ball-bearing devices that you can rotate between your fingers. I have yet to try one but some say that the momentum created provides a pleasing sensory experience. I have seen some kids try to transfer the spinner from one hand to the other while it is rotating. Initially, I thought fidget spinners were used to help people with ADHD, autism and anxiety disorders. It somehow helps them focus and keeps them calm. School just started over here and I am planning on conducting a simple research on whether this spinning thingy does improve concentration. Logic tells me that it is more of a distraction since it requires visual stimuli but I could be mistaken.
