Remember the 90s? Yeah me either. 🙂 I also “don’t remember” making my dad drive me to some head shop to buy baggies of pogs and heavy slammers. That was the eye roll toy of the 90s (in my opinion.) My dad hated every second of it but he put up with it, because that’s what kids do: follow trends. So here we are in 2017, and basically you put some bearings together and call it a “fidget spinner.” (It allegedly helps with ADHD) It’s also so trendy that now fidget spinners featuring the logos and photos of some of the biggest music stars are being sold online.
Probably not licensed by bands, there are fidget spinners for Radiohead, Nirvana, Arcade Fire, and Queens of the Stone Age. (there’s probably tons more, buuut). I’m gonna throw in my two cents and say that 99% of these are probably not licensed by the bands you love. SO. Make sure before buying, that it’s legit. Arcade Fire recently disowned the “illegal, unlicensed” spinners, and stated that official ones are on the way.

So what is it up and coming bands? Fidget spinners on the table? I think yes.
