Fidget Spinner

This is definitely the year of the fidget spinner. These small ball-bearing toys, which you can rotate between your fingers, come in a variety of shapes and colors. Most have three spokes, but some resemble a ninja star. They are marketed as a useful device for those with anxiety or ADHD. So, how do they do this?

Well, for those with ADHD, it may provide sensory stimulation or a distraction. This means that it may also distract individuals with anxiety from worrying. Playing with the toys is often associated with a soothing feeling.

If you don’t already own a fidget spinner, but would like to try it, you can purchase one on Amazon, Wal-Mart (or any store that sells toys), and even at your local convenience store. Fidget spinners are typically under $10, but some fancier ones can cost up to $20.
