What is a Fidget Spinner?

A Fidget Spinner is a type of gadget that keeps your hands and fingers occupied. You use your hands and fingers to spin it. People walk around and balance them on their fingers. There is a lot of different tricks that you can do with this type of product that are interesting. A lot of people have purchased these gadgets for themselves and for their children.

Why Should I Buy One?

Reviewers state that this product has been helpful for: anxiety, stress, ADD ADHD, OCD, schizophrenia, autism and addictive behaviors. The manufacturer also agrees with this statement. Nail biting is a common addictive behavior that people use this gadget to prevent them from biting their nails. If you decide you want a Fidget Spinner, it could possibly help you with any of these issues that you are going through.

You can use this type of product to keep yourself from being bored. If you are on a plane and you are a little nervous about it, fiddle with one of these gadgets. It can keep your mind from over thinking about the plane ride. Many people will fiddle with one while they are watching television or during a car ride.

People give fidget spinners for their children as well. It can help your child with any mental issues or to help keep themselves busy. I suggest not purchasing one for your child if your child is not older than the age of four. To help the product spin, it requires ball bearings. These ball bearings do contain small parts inside them. Use caution if you decide to get one for your child. A Fidget Spinner can keep your child occupied while you are driving or shopping.

Where Do I Purchase A Fidget Spinner?

You can purchase a Fidget Spinner online through Amazon. It is cheaper buying one online than it is locally. The down side is that you have to wait longer for the package to come in. I have seen some hobby craft store that carry these as well. Some people have even found them at some gas stations. You can check your local department store to see if they carry them, but call first. You don't want to waste gas money driving around looking for one of these gadgets.


Customizing A Fidget Spinner

A lot of people have different designs of fidget spinners. When you purchase one, you have the option to choose a design. You can choose a solid design or a colorful design. There are glow in the dark ones and some with LED lights. These fidget spinners are great, because they are really cool to see in the dark.

Some people will purchase one and customize it to their own design. Spray paint and nail polish is great to use for customizing a Fidget Spinner. You can use nail polish to make detailed designs. If you do it this way, make sure you use a painting gloss to work as a protectant and it helps the paint last longer. As you fiddle with a Fidget Spinner, the paint can wear off over time.

When you paint a Fidget Spinner, make sure you remove the ball bearings. This can be tricky and hard to do. Push the ball bearings out with your thumbs to make it easier for them to come out. Choose a wide open area or go outside to paint. Lay down a tarp or paper, so you don't accidently paint the surface that you are using to paint on. Let the paint dry completely. Sand down the inside of the holes where the ball bearings will be put back in place. If you do not do this, it can be harder to place them back in after painting it.

The fidget spinner on the right looks while, but it actually glows in the dark into a green color. The one on the left has some color to it.

      I just saw someone spinning one of these on the street a few days ago. I wanted to point it out to the people I was with, but I wasn't sure they would have any idea what I was talking about. I'd seen advertisements for them before, but never one in person. Have you seen anyone with one out and about in public?
