Why is the best selling toy chart full of Fidget Spinners?

Just a quick post to share a story from the Telegraph yesterday about how popular Fidget Spinners have become with school children. For the last few weeks the best selling toys chart for the UK has been almost completely dominated by Fidget Spinners. These were originally designed for children with ADHD but have been much more widely accepted as a low cost popular toy now.

According to this article in the Telegraph yesterday Fidget Spinners are now so popular with school children that they are starting to be banned by some schools.Fidget Spinners Guide


I think the price point has a lot to do with the popularity. In this weeks best selling toys chart the price range between £2 and £5, so well within the range of  a pocket money purchase.

Update: We’ve now seen that this story has been picked up by the Guardian and they have gone into a lot more detail about the background to Fidget Spinners.
