These stress relieving toys which were originally developed by Catherine Hettinger became such a craze amongst the students that various educational institutes banned these from their campus stating them to be classroom distractions. However, manufacturers claim that these toys help with ADHD (Attention Deficient Hyperactivity Disorder) and other anxiety disorders. The main reason behind the success of these little bearings is a perfect blend of various factors. But before talking about their success let us talk a little about Pokémon Go, the reason behind the success of this app was that it attracted a large audience where the people between their 20 -30s could relate to it as it could be their favorite cartoon in the past.

On the other hand, it also entertained people who
disliked Pokémon or probably didn’t know much about it by using a totally new concept of ‘real time location’ based gaming and interface. Hence, it was successful in creating a wave that took over the world in no time. Now talking about spinners, firstly these things were pocket-friendly; this gave them a good advantage of creating a talk of the town; when people carried the spinners outdoors, it evoked curiosity among others. They were cheap as well as addictive and obviously, they attracted all age group.

Other factors such as availability in various colors and designs fascinated anyone and everyone and played a very important role in making them a social boom. Lastly, we can conclude that these spinners were successfully marketed gadgets.
