The reason: “It’s really fun to twist something in your hands, between two fingers. This is totally relaxing. Relaxation is also the reason why the trend toy is also very popular among adults.

The spinner is not only a mirror but also an anti-stress device. With a hand wheel it provides for stress reduction. People who are prone to nervousness should definitely try a fidget spinner.
