 Fidget Spinners became popular toys in 2017, although similar devices had already been invented in 1993; check out the quote!
"In comparison to its precursors, such as Tamagotchi, Furby or Slime, the demand for fidget spinners is developing at the speed of light."
- Willy Fischel - chief executive of the German Association of Toy Retail.


 Often marketed with claims of health benefits, the toy became popular among schoolchildren. Some schools banned the spinners for being a distraction, while other schools allowed the toy to be used discreetly.
