When it comes to burning off excess energy, fidget toys have emerged as a prettier alternative to constantly clicking a pen and a healthier choice than biting one's nails, and Fidget Hand Spinners are among the most satisfying options available. The gadget does little more than offer a satisfying spin, but that zen-like, quasi-hypnotic motion has proven productive for kids at school and adults in the office alike.
Materially, Fidget Hand Spinners are akin to stainless steel spinning tops. However, in place of a top's pointed end, Fidget Hand Spinners have a smooth, tactile center attached with ball bearings. By flicking one of the extending circular appendages, fidgeters can get the gadget rotating for minutes at a time, and its gyroscopic movement causes it to balance while it does so.
