Fidget Spinners are on the way out..

A street trader on Kyle Street in Cork was selling two “classic” fidget spinners for five euro last weekend. You can still buy fancy “gold” or LED ones at inflated prices but every bargain basement or novelty store has buckets of them to sell. My son is still obsessed with his ones, but I’ll give it a week or two before they’re gathering dust in a corner along with his collection of multi-coloured loom bands.

I’m just noting this here for future me when I wonder, “what year were fidget spinners all the rage?” I still remember the early 90s as the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles years.

  1. A stand that normally sells Georgia peaches and citrus on the side of the road here in Florida was advertising fidget spinners over the weekend. Ugh.

  2. My two boys are begging me for one every day; last Friday a friend of my youngest gave him one, apparently (I told him to give it back). They spent the weekend bickering about it. I don’t get it.

    My eldest also wants the coloured loom thingy to make Pokemons out of it or something. I bet it’d gather dust pretty quickly, too.
