Today I saw a CNN report about fidget spinners, which I found quite interesting.
I have also tried to play Taobao’s smart push and the primary school students around me are playing it. To be honest, I can’t play it and I don’t understand the fun. Just like I can’t feel the fun of playing King Pesticide. Like the “drink more hot water” theory, I can say “I’m old.”
The Define Of Fidget Spinner
A fidget spinner is a toy (tool) used to relieve stress. It is flat in shape and has a receiving shaft in the middle.
