A fidget spinner is a toy you hold in your hand, with a weight on one end that causes it to spin. You can use it to help relieve stress by flipping and spinning the device between your fingers. The fidget spinner can be spun using one hand, and it is made from a variety of materials including brass, copper, stainless steel and plastic. The most common fidget spinners have three prongs called blades on each side of the weighted center.
