Play with it. Relieve your stress with it. Exercise your hands using it. The fidget spinner’s popularity has boomed in the past months, with many adults and children clamouring to get one. The original spinners can be quite expensive, yet many people buy and collect them. It is made from various materials such as brass, stainless steel, titanium, copper, and plastic.
While some claim that people who have trouble concentrating (such as those with ADHD, autism, or anxiety), can use the spinner for therapy, some experts claim otherwise.
Though many children (and adults) enjoy using the said ‘stress reliever’, a recent post on Facebook has left many parents in shock. Apparently, a baby had her finger stuck in one of the spinners and was in extreme pain before her parents were able to cut the thick steel ring that squeezed her finger for quite some time.
Jorge Macho Puentes noticed that his baby was incessantly crying as if she was in pain. He then noticed that the child had stuck her finger inside one of the spinner’s holes and she couldn’t get her finger out of it.
As of this article’s writing, the original video has been taken down, as many netizens slammed the parents for letting a baby play with the spinner in the first place.
