Fidget Spinners: an autism aid becomes a classroom craze – BBC News

There's a new global craze sweeping through schools. A fidget spinner is a three-pronged gadget which you put between your finger and thumb, then flick to spin. It was originally created to help children with autism and other special educational needs. But it's become a hit with children across the board.

The top of the range models sell for $1000, the cheapest for a few dollars. In Britain, Rob Ellard set up a business to sell them last October. Autistic himself, he explains how popular the toys have become.
