Not the type of spinner I was hoping for. Although, not sure I'd want to see garage sale spinners.

What is the sole purpose of these things? I watched the news this morning and they're banning them in schools.

As much as I enjoy Lego calling those things spinners is a stretch at best. This thing can spin almost 2 minutes without any special training, I doubt the Lego would go 20 seconds.

True, but it expands the world of the fad and obsession and adds creativity to the mix. I'm thinking about kids not 40 yo men

Does it though? Maybe the lesson "not everything can be made of Lego" is being lost.

I feel dumber for watching part of that video. WTF is with the stupid look they have on their faces when they manage to bounce it or catch it with it still spinning.... like "wow! ball bearings! I bet nobody has seen those before!"
