Fidget spinners became popular toys in April 2017, although similar devices had been invented as early as 1993.

There are claims that a fidget spinner can help calm people down who suffer from anxiety and other neurological disorders like ADHD and autism. However, as of May 2017, there is no scientific evidence that they are effective as a treatment for autism or ADHD.
