Due to the much hype on Fidget Spinner, you might be wondering whether why this toy has got much attention. I also really thought so. The questions which came across my mind were, ‘What is Fidget Spinner?’, ‘Why is it so popular?’ and ‘Does it really deserve the attention that it’s getting at present?’

According to the manufacturers, the fidget spinner gadget is used not just for playing. They are also used for helping people with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), autism and anxiety as the toy offers an outlet to expend any additional energy and prevent from fidgeting.
