Are you a fidgeter? This spinning device promises to keep you busy

Fidget spinners are the new IT toy that everyone wants… we’re undecided.

We’re not a fan of fidgeting in the Her offices, but this new craze could actually prove to be more annoying.

Fidget spinners are palm sized 3 pronged toys that are giving Tamagotchis a run for their money in the states. Some are describing them as a teacher’s worst nightmare, but they were originally started as a tool to help children with ADHD.

They’re a small device with a bearing in the middle that allows you to spin it in your hand. The original was created by Catherine Hettinger over 20 years ago in 1993. It was originally conceived as a calming tool for children but proved incredibly popular with adults too. Hettinger’s patent expired before the recent craze though so she’s not getting a dime (RAGE).

The Twitter world shares our sentiment, not quite sure…
