Somebody please tell me these fidget spinners are a useless distraction and that they have zero cognitive benefit for people with attention deficit issues so that I can continue in my raging irritation at them and persist in my fantasies of chucking them out a fifth-story window onto Michigan Avenue. They’re a nefarious fad, I just know it. Back me up here.
That’s how it is, see? My gut reaction is annoyance, and so I’m employing my faculties of reason to support my gut. Information that contradicts my gut I don’t want to hear.

Every educator I’ve polled says they’re horrible. They are a stimulation device, and detrimental to any kind of learning/focusing task.
You do not disappoint
I’ve spoken to a few educators and no one is a fan. That being said we have a couple of fidget spinners at home!
I have one now too!
THEY ARE EVIL INCARNATE!! According to the New York Post, fidget spinners were invented by Catherine Hettinger, who showed her invention to Hasbro way back in 1997. Her patent expired earlier in 2017, and Hasbro and other toy companies swooped in. PEOPLE NEED TO KNOW THE TRUTH!
