How is a toy made for 2 year olds that you just spin around your fingers such a hit ???


And IMO that bs they say that it helps ADHD , anxeity etc. that ladies and gentlemen is call the placebo effect , I am 100% sure some idiot came up with that whole ADHD bs and when other people with ADHD heard it they wanted to believe it so that's how that happened .

I am 100% sure that if someone just bought this toy without knowing anything and they had adhd , they would never claim that it helps their ADHD , it might help you WHILE spinning it as you need to focus more on the spinning but that's about it , the moment you stop and boom, ADHD kicks in again , and that has nothing to do with the toy itself , it is just logic , when find something interesting you can concetrate further on it.


What happens when you start finding it boring though lol ?


This thing will be forgotten in 2-3 months and whoever follows internet trends is retarded.

They are basically already dead at my school because they got 'banned' because people were spinning them 24/7 at school or chucking them at other people. It's probably popular because a lot of people are oblivious to how stupid it is, and how pointless it is.

Be honest Lolpop, how many hours do you keep yourself busy with a fidget spinner on a daily basis?

How often do you find it in your mouth?
Xbox One / PC
XIM Apex / Logitech G Pro Keyboard / Logitech G900
Astro MixAmp Pro TR / Sennheiser HD598 / Blue Yeti Mic

I don't even have one , im too poor to afford it , i spend ALL of my extra money on things that make my life easier , this thing sure as hell wont make it easier.

And by the way , things that make your life easier are defined as NEEDS, screw people who say that all you need a food , water and a home.  Those things relate to how much time you save and time is a NEED .

A fidget spinner is the exact opposite as it would just waste your time.


Oh and by the way , do you know the first thing I remembered when I heard "fidget spinner"  , I dont know why but it just popped up out of nowhere blah blah blah, I posted a link to porn and a helpful mod changed my post for me so kids and people who don't want to see that garbage don't have to. Thanks helpful mod!!! You're the best!!!

You do know that they were invented/developed for people with certain disabilities way back in the 90's, right?  This sudden outbreak into commercial use is new.
