By Biya Haq | 26 May, 2017

So unless you have been living under a rock or have been off of social media in the last week or so (waisay, good for you), you know exactly what a ‘fidget spinner’ is. It’s been on the news, Instagram, Facebook, YouTube – basically everywhere on the interwebs.


For those of you who don’t know what a “fidget spinner” is, here’s what these hypnotic things look like:

Either way, they have become HUGE.


Wondering what a fidget spinner actually is?

The object supposedly started off as a stress reliever for kids, especially those suffering from ADHD. Apart from that, because of the spinner’s shape and gyroscopic effect, the object is spun around and around on it’s own until it balances itself out and because of it’s axis of rotation, it allows it to assume any orientation.


But what does the world do with the new trend?







People have meme-d these spinners like C-R-A-Z-Y

But oh well, if anything the spinners did give us all a ton of great content.

I’m so sorry

Tbh, it can be pretty cool.


Basically, it’s a toy, it spins and now the toy trend has made it’s way to Pakistan, too. Teachers hate it, older people don’t understand it and the rest of us don’t really care.

The trend is probably going to spin its way out of our lives pretty soon so enjoy it (or not) while you can! Love you, bye.
