New “Fidget Spinner” Toys Exploding In Latest Craze


THE LATEST TOY CRAZE …BEING MARKETED AS A WAY TO HELP KEEP KIDS…STAY FOCUSED IN THE CLASSROOM. BUT NOT ALL TEACHERS ARE BUYING IT. KPIX 5’S JOHN RAMOS ON THE DEBATE OVER FIDGET SPINNERS. The phone keeps ringingâasking for spinners.,,” Learning Express Toys in Lafayette, also known as “your fidget headquarters,” is cashing in on the latest schoolyard crazeâthe fidget spinner. Cindy Mashat/Owner, Learning Express Toys of Lafayette “One weekend we sold about a hundred of them. In one weekend? Oh, in a dayâin a day, yeah. (laughs).” They’re simple enoughâa pinwheel like gadget held between two fingers that spins smoothly on a bearing. And if you haven’t heard of them yet, you soon will, as the fad grows to “beanie-baby” proportions. Elizabeth Anderson/Fifth grader “Holding them and spinning them is oddly satisfying and it’s really fun.” So many kids are being “oddly satisfied” by the toys that some schools have begun to ban them for being a distraction. But they’re moving slowly on that because many educators believe it helps students focus if they can move their hands or feet to let off excess energy. Fidget devices like the spinner may actually be good for people…like Mary Quinn’s eighth grade daughter. Mary Quinn/Lafayette mother “She was always told having something in her hand would help her read, soâ So, are you gonna get her a spinner? Oh gosh, I don’t knowâshe can buy her own!” Back at “headquarters,” Cindy has other fidget devices to sell, but none of them have captured the imagination quite like the spinner. “Now we’re ordering by the thousands. By the THOUSANDS?! Yeah.” But she better sell them quick because even the kids don’t think this craze will last past the summer. (kid) “Why don’t these fads ever last very long? Because rich kids find new things to buy.” In Lafayette, JR, KPIX-5. TIME FOR A LOOK AT WEATHER… PAUL DEANNO IS LIVE IN WALNUT CREEK…
