Fidget spinners are the latest toy craze sweeping the country. They consist of small pieces of plastic, metal, and a ball bearing that the user can rotate between their fingers. Fidget spinners act as a release mechanism for people with nervous energy or psychological stress.
Initially the toy was marketed for children and adults who struggle with focusing or fidgeting, such as those with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and autism. But their popularity has increased beyond their initial target group and children of all ages can be seen playing with fidget spinner toys.
