Should I buy my 9 year old daughter a fidget spinner because it's the new craze?
What are fidget spinners?
Fidget spinners were designed as stress-relieving tools, which have been used to help kids deal with ADHD and anxiety.
The propeller-shaped gadgets, which come in a variety of colours, have ball bearings which allow them to spin.
You simply hold it in between your fingers, flick it and watch it spin. Some versions even light up, and they are completely silent.
Kids can compete against each other to come up with the best tricks, or to keep their gadget spinning the longest.
Promoted to beat boredom and increase concentration, some Amazon reviewers even claim the toys have helped them stop biting their nails.
