Emma’s Recommendations On The Fidget Spinner

Emma claims if your bored in class and you’re tired of playing with your pencil, play with your fidget spinner. But also claims your teacher could get mad. If you’re near family, be careful not to spin your fidget around little babies or their eyes would pop out! Ewww! Emma, where did you hear this? Emma also took Hannah’s fidget spinner to school once without her knowing. She’s sneaky! Emma also claims if you don’t have your device with you, spinning your fidget is a great distraction and can also help you focus.

Emma also recommends not spinning by other people too. 

Emma is very serious about not getting your fidget spinner around your eye. This video was made while Emma was visiting her grandparents in Lawrence, Kansas and produced by Molly Isagurl.

According to WikipediaA fidget spinner is a type of toy, whose marketers claim it relieves stress. A basic fidget spinner consists of a bearing in the center of a design made from any of a variety of materials including brass, stainless steel, titanium, copper and plastic. The toy has been advertised as helping people who have trouble with focusing or fidgeting (such as those with ADHD, autism, or anxiety) by acting as a release mechanism for nervous energy or psychological stress. Experts were divided on this claim, with some supporting it while others disputed its scientific basis and argued the toy may actually be more distracting.

Although they were invented in the 1990s, fidget spinners became popular toys in 2017. Often marketed with claims of health benefits, the toy began being used by school children, resulting in some schools banning the spinners, arguing that the toy became a distraction in classrooms. Other schools are allowing the toy to be used discreetly by children, presumably to help them concentrate.
