Fidget Spinners

Home » Newsroom » Fidget Spinners

Yup, I really am not bothered if you're already moaning, you do need to know this.

Just when you thought you could forget all those loom bands murdering your vacuum cleaner, here's something else to distract the younger family members.

Fidget spinners burst on to the scene last December and are now becoming endemic. What are they? Well, they were originally developed as a way for children with ADHD or autism to relieve stress.
But in the last few weeks, these palm-sized toys have become the latest "must-have" for almost every school child in the country.

On video-sharing websites like YouTube, vloggers have amassed millions of views from performing tricks with their fidget spinners.

And teachers have reported a huge increase in the number being brought to schools by pupils.

If you feel you need to know more (and you do), have a look at this article on the BBC website by clicking here. It'll take your mind of the election. Maybe.
