Fun with Fidget Spinners: 50 Super Cool Tricks and Activities
David King (of GeekBite)
It’s a $500M toy fad that most likely you or the kids have been a part of. The first time I heard of a fidget spinner was just a few months ago when a Mom on a community FB group posted that “…for anyone looking, we just found some fidget spinners at 7-11. They will run out so letting you know!” What is a fidget spinner? I asked my 9 year old and he jumped up and down. Apparently he not only knew and had seen a fidget spinner but heard they are no where to be found. He ran up to get his money and did not have enough so he begged to do chores and run down to the store ASAP. Now he has many of them. In fact, on a recent trip to NYC the first 3 souvenirs he bought with his spending money were fidget spinners that were in gift shops and street vendors.
For me, I played with one for a few moments and then was a bit unsure what I ought to do next. My son. however tosses and uses props so when I saw this book I knew he’d have a blast with the tricks and activities. Some are very challenging and others are just simple and fun.
The tricks are performed in photo by Pro Fidgeter (is that a title?) David King who is host to a show my son has watched on Youtube called GeekBite. Stack spinners, spin on water bottles and do skateboard flip ups. And for Mom and Dad who are curious, there is a section that provides information on the true health benefits of these fidget spinners. I set the book on the table and did some chores and when I cam back into the room, Anthony had put the Xbox controllers down and was flipping through the book with his spinner in hand. It took him away from the screen and that’s the best part of it for me.
Find the book at a great price on Amazon for Kindle or paperback.
