As a child of the ’80s we didn’t have fidget spinners when I was growing up. We also had to walk uphill both ways in the snow to school, but that is another story. The closest we had to a fidget spinner in my house was twirling the TV remote between your fingers until it shot across the room and bounced off the all glass console TV screen, and the punishment that followed. I’d have totally played with a fidget spinner, unlike some of my snobbier cohorts who like to complain about them but still write about them around here.
The coolest fidget spinner that I have seen yet is this animated Mario fidget spinner. When you spin this thing it looks like Mario is running and it may be the coolest thing I have seen all week. This custom is form aPyroDesign and you can buy these things on the designer’s Etsy store.
They are made from laser cut aluminum and made to order. They also make several other styles, each with a cool pattern that comes to life when they get up to speed:
You can get them for $12 each, which is a bargain and if my daughter sees this i’ll have to buy one
