A big question on everyone’s mind right now: what are these “fidget spinners” and why all the hype?
The toy itself is simple, yet has become a viral sensation. These pocket-sized gadgets are designed with the intent to relieve stress by flicking the paddle-shaped blades while squeezing down on the center core, spinning the blades.
Some claim that fidget spinners also help improve focus by allowing you to do what you normally try not to do: fidget. Though others deem the toy itself a major distraction — you can be the judge after you take it for a spin.
