This wiki has been updated 22 times since it was first published in May of 2017. Finger spinners can serve as as anti-anxiety tools or to help keep youngsters from fidgeting, and they’re also fun for kids to play with and trade. The models here offer quality designs, some of which light up for added entertainment. For safety’s sake, since these have small parts, they’re not meant for those under age 3, and young children should always be supervised during use.

Editor's Notes

June 17, 2020:

Whether you’re looking for fun stocking stuffer ideas or a way to help keep your child’s or spouse’s fidgeting at bay, these fidget spinners just might do the trick. In today’s updated, we added in a couple of cool light-up options. The Innoplus Solar is powered by energy from the sun, or from the lights on your phone’s display, and after just a minute or two of charging it can illuminate in green in three areas. It resembles a UFO, and is available in three fun designs. The Figrol LED comes in a pack of five, in almost every color of the rainbow, and these light up when pressed, and can be set to any of three flashing or fading modes. Included with this set is a battery-changing tool, along with an individual case for each of the spinners. They’re great for a large family or for party favors. Speaking of party favors, another set that’s suitable is the newly added Scione 5 Pack, which comes with iridescent rainbow gadgets, each in a different fun design.

We also added in the Duomishu Anti-Anxiety, a high-quality model that features a dual-pendulum design and is modeled after the Chaos Theory, which means the movements are random and unique, and follow different paths each time you spin it. For another durable metal choice, we also added the square-shaped Wewinn Premium, which features nine interlocking gears that move together when you spin it. What makes this one even more fun is you can take it apart with an Allen key and put it back together, which is highly entertaining for anyone who is mechanically inclined. Yet another fun design, which can also double as a paperweight, is the DMaos Ferris Wheel, which comes with five marbles and five metal balls, which can be inserted interchangeably into the base. Just give it a whirl to watch them rotate. Like the Wewinn, this one is designed to be taken apart and reassembled easily, and it conveniently comes with a screwdriver for doing so.

If you frequently find yourself wishing for a fidget spinner during lecture hall, check out the Anstar Ballpoint, which not only spins, but comes with a pen on each end, so you can stop and take notes when something important is being said. For the puzzle lover in your life, especially those who were around in the 1980s, check out the Rubik’s Cube Magic Star, which you can either spin or use to slide all of the colored pieces onto the correct sides.

No matter which you ultimately go with, it’s important to note that they’re not intended for children younger than three years of age, since they all contain small parts that could pose a choking hazard. Light-up models require button batteries, which are an ingestion risk for children. Whenever giving fidget spinners to any child, be sure to supervise them at all times to ensure their safety.
