A new class of toy is sweeping the country this season and adults are loving this plaything just as much as kids.
Fidget spinners and cubes are the latest playground craze, and despite their simple appearance, a three-pronged spinner or a tiny nodded cube, they are addictive in both their simplicity and their ability to de-stress.
Originally designed as calming tools for kids with ADHD, Autism Spectrum Disorder or Anxiety Disorder, users across the globe have discovered that both species of the fidget toy have a soothing effect, whether you’re a middle schooler who has trouble focusing in class, a college kid in the midst of finals or a sales guy with a huge presentation on Monday.
Available in a variety of colors and sizes, the fidget toys are made by dozens of manufacturers, available everywhere from Walmart to Amazon and range from $5 up to $40.
For some people, fidget spinner toys can provide a sense of comfort and peace in stressful situations. They can also provide a way to concentrate during a dull meeting. Fidget toys fit in your hand and are made with the best materials.
Fidget spinner helps focus your attention and prevents you from doing other irritable tasks or bad habits such as smoking, nail biting or endless pen clicking.
The few seconds that you take to play with a spinner can relieve the tension and let your subconscious mind work on tough problems.
Fidget spinners are classy and compact that can be enjoyed anywhere, school, work, in meetings, commuting, Netflix and chilling, you name it.
Each time it spins, it creates a soothing rotation that is mesmerizing.
Having a fidget toy was something only children with a diagnosed condition like autism were supposed to want or need.
Now suddenly that has all changed.
Time will tell how long this latest trend lasts. I am watching with interest in the hope this has a positive impact for awareness and acceptance of the autistic population.
