Fidget Spinners


Fidget spinners, who remembers them? But a better question is, how did they become so popular? And what happened? The fidget spinner was actually invented in 1993, but the fidget spinner boom started in 2017. Fidget spinners were played with and sometimes sold and traded at school, and it got to the point where some schools had to outright ban them. According to a survey, 32% of schools in the nation have banned fidget spinners. What exactly caused this rise in popularity? Some say it is because of some publications at the time claiming that fidget spinners help with ADHD, anxiety, and psychological stress. However, this has been disproved in a May 2017 study.  After this study, the sales for fidget spinners dramatically decreased and they were never seen again.
