    I bought 2 last week from a local toy shop, 4 each for a set of 4 roller bearings with SS seals.
    My Son took his to school the day his school banned them, somehow the teachers tolerance levels where stretched.

    What total nonsense.
    The mind doesn't boggle, it slumps into a festering mold of depression.

    Modern day yo-yo with no strings attached. From what I remember teachers didn't care much for yo-yos either.

    But there was an element of skill and manual dexterity with yo yo.

    This thing is just silly.

    The whole point is this, in my day a fidgeting child in class would have their knuckle rapped by a teachers ruler.
    Today a fidgeting child gets something to hold and fiddle with, keeping it quiet. So this device calms the student.

    Or they get diagnosed as ADHD and then are pumped full of drugs.

    Maybe the fidget spinner isn't so bad after all...

    Before rubics cube, and still today, it was/is rosary beads. I think Muslims have a form of rosary bead, too.

    A masturbating child.
    It's quite disturbing where your mind leaps to.

    It's interesting to see how you can turn a joke into an anxiety.

    It's telling to see what subjects amuse you.
    Indeed I will have some angst regarding anyone whose mind leaps to thoughts such as yours did.

    How sad,....get a fidget, it could help you keep your hand off yourself and relieve your rather obvious neuroticism.

    At least with yoyo's there were plenty of tricks to learn - or never fully learn in some cases - but the highlight of this piece of shit is passing it between hands while it's spinning?. Let's see it do an Eiffel tower or walk the dog
