What is a LED Fidget Spinner? Why should I play with one? Think first of a small, ball bearing device designed to be rotated between thumb and index finger. That involves pincer grasp. Spinning, therefore, improves fine motor skills. Now add flashing, color changing light disks that spin in the dark. But there’s more. Now press each disk once. Twice. Then a third time. Watch as tiny bulbs blink on and off. The spinning lights help develop our visual tracking skills. Additionally the whirling motion creates a soft whoosh sound that engages our sense of hearing.
But what’s the main reason to grab a fidget spinner? That’s simple. Calming diversion. Stress relief. Improved ability to concentrate. Fidget spinners promote self-regulation. Keeping our hands busy seems to have a calming effect on our minds and bodies. This in turn allows us to focus better. Measures 3″ diameter.
