Spinners and Fidget Cubes

   There are these new toys out, which I honestly think that they were meant more for adults with ADHD and anxiety disorders, that kids can't stop buying or making their parents buy. They are called spinners and they are driving teachers across the country insane. Why? They are distracting in the classroom. The complaints are not only from the teachers but from the students, too. Apparently, spinning one of these guys and staring at it is supposed to be stress reducing.
   As an educator who has ADHD, I don't see the usefulness and can understand my teacher friends complaining about the widespread use of these toys by students. What happened to sneak reading a fiction book while the teacher was lecturing?

   I have not heard as much fuss about the fidget cube from teachers as the spinners. However, I can understand the usefulness of a fidget cube. It's a lot quieter than a student clicking their pen 100X. I'm a pen clicker, I know, I annoyed a lot of fellow students. 

    Teachers, parents, and students: could you tell me in the comments below what you think of these devices? Which one is helpful? Has any of them increased your focus? Has it improved your grades because you are not as anxious? Are college students using them?
