Over the past few months, the Fidget Spinner has become an incredible craze. If you have children or are surrounded by any, you would have already noticed this and probably tried them out yourself.

Why is the Fidget Spinner so addictive?

It is aimed at minimising distractions, in an attempt to build more engagement and attentiveness, especially to children who may have cognitive impairments or who have been diagnosed with ADHD. Use of a fidget spinner therefore acts as a stimulating aid – which is required for them to be more attentive.

Some people doodle and when they do, they are more focused. Similarly, with a fidget spinner, if you are a very fidgety person, focusing your fingers on the fidget spinner, may just allow your mind to be more engaged.

It’s fun- it’s colourful – there’s a variety of designs to choose from.

It’s a great social accessory

Children like to be involved. With the fidget spinner, they are physically “playing” with a toy, not a mobile phone or some other electronic device. Not that I have any issues with that – but too much of something can also become a problem. In this generation, where technology rules, the craze of the fidget spinner has positively influenced social engagement.

People are different – so like with everything else in life, fidget spinners should be used in moderation.

  1. I have not bought these yet for my kids but heard a lot of positive reviews. I will try it out soon 👍🏼

    Check out fidget cubes as well… a friend of mine who has severe depression says her doctor recommended she gets one to keep her hands busy when anxiety creeps in.

  2. I would like to win because I suffer from anxiety and I have heard that fidget spinners help in social situations, to calm panic attacks and aid with anxiety. they are definitely something I would like to give a chance to help me and my anxiety.

  3. We are fidget spinner crazy. My son and i compete against each other to see whose spinner is the fastest and whose spins the longest. We have such fun. Its also a great bonding tool. We can sit for hours just playing. #fidgetspinnerfundi
