Your kid probably has a fidget spinner already, but let me tell you about it anyway

Fidget spinners are so hot right now.

Your kid probably has a fidget spinner already, but let me tell you about it anyway

Rubber-band-loom bracelets: Were they really worse than fidget spinners? Perhaps.

Actually, yes. At the end of the day, this fad isn’t bad. The clanking and banging of bottle-flipping is distracting. The crafting of colorful rubber-band bracelets with the rainbow loom was all right, although a bit spendy and created trails of mini rubber bands and unused rubber-band bracelets everywhere.

The fidget spinner is small, cheap and relatively quiet.

Would I prefer that my kids join a reading club that they participate in between innings of their all-star baseball games? Sure. But if fidget spinners keep them off their phones and tablets, then so be it.
