5 Stars: Hand Spinner Fidget Toy

I teach students with special needs and I'm always on the look out for new fidgets (things they can mess with in class).  This one is somewhat pricey at $11.99 on Amazon.  I've seen several for under $5.  The difference here is in the quality of the materials.  The cheaper ones are usually plastic.  This one is aluminum and has a nice weight to it.
The idea behind fidget devices is that if the person is physically distracted, then their mind can pay more attention to the task at hand.  I let one of my students with anxiety use this one for several days and he says it has helped him a bunch.  There is a great weight to the spinner and you can really feel how high quality it is.  It spins super smooth without any catches or hiccups.  One push of the blades and it will spend for at least a minute.  

I know there is a bunch of people who think the spinners are really distracting.  These are intended for people with a disability like ADHD or anxiety.  If students are shown how to use one in a non-distracting way, like under the desk, then it will be less distracting.  


I received this product at a discount for my honest opinion.
