Fidget spinners are sensory toys that have two to three side lobes attached to a central disc which allows you to spin the toy in your hand. They also come in the form of a fidget cube shaped like dice and have buttons, gears, switches, and spinning disks around the six sides of the cube.

The fidget sensory toy is said to help children and adults focus and/or become calm in situations where they need to release nervous energy. The toy distracts users from anxiety and soothes children with sensory issues.

For children, the fidget spinner boosts focus and concentration and also reduces anxiety. The toy provides a calming effect which ultimately helps to improve children’s productivity and learning in the classroom.

Fidget spinners are made out of plastic and metal, therefore should the toy break, it may shatter into pieces and become a choking hazard for young children. Some fidget spinners also contain small flat batteries, if swallowed can cause burns to the esophagus and intestines.

Battery-operated fidget spinners may become a fire hazard by bursting into flames when being charged. It is recommended to use the charging cable that is supplied with the toy and monitor the device as it is being charged.

Important Things to Consider when Purchasing a Fidget Spinner

  • Durable Material

It is recommended to go with a fidget spinner made of either plastic, metal, or fiber. These materials are very durable and strong as the toy is lightweight and may fall and break.

  • Appropriate configuration for the User

Standard fidget spinners have two to three side lobes. If you are purchasing the toy for someone, it might be best to have them choose which one may suit them better. Where the toy is for those with ADHD or anxiety, the design should be chosen by the user. Additionally, consider the shape and comfort for the user as spinners may cause finger rashes from rough discs.
