Why a growing number of schools are banning fidget spinners

DENVER, Colo. — Fidget spinners may be sweeping the nation, but they’re not getting the warmest welcome in classrooms.

It’s described as a small, flat object, usually with three appendages and a center button with ball bearings on it, allowing someone to hold the spinner in one hand and give it a spin with the other, usually spinning from three to four minutes.

It was designed for people who have certain sensory needs, where playing with something like  a fidget spinner can help one focus.

FOX31’s Dan Daru speaks to a few kids for their take on the fidget spinner and explains why they’re no longer allowed on campuses.
