Taking a Spin: Latest Fad is Driving Salesby Dennis Seid
Tupelo, MS – The hottest toy of 2017 – a fidget spinner – has been around since the 1990s, but demand was virtually nonexistent until YouTube videos emerged showing the spinning toys in action. And momentum is only growing.
And what exactly is a fidget spinner?
The basic fidget spinner is a small, hand-held device (many call it a toy) with three prongs centered around ball bearings. Users spin one of the prongs – which can be made of several different materials, including plastic, copper, brass and titanium– and watch it spin for up to 2 minutes or more.
