I had no clue that these toys even had a story behind them and, in fact, have “been around in different forms since 1993.” Pogs I was familiar with, spinners, no. Back to those designs. Among the many discussed in this book there are spinners aplenty: The Tri, the Bi-Win, the Hex, the Quad, the Wheel, the Mini, the Fidget Cube, the Fidget Pad, the Fidget Flip, and the one I got in the Dollar Store. Well, skip that one because it’s not in here. There’s also a page of some ultra-cool fidget spinners in the “Hall of Fame.”
This book is packed with some good-to know information I never knew. King starts off by describing how spinners are made and how they work. He explains that they are “actually little machines with a whole lot of physics behind them.” A word to the wise is in one sidebar and that’s the fact that fidget spinners shouldn’t be “distracting to other’s in a classroom.” The fun really begins when learning how to do some amazing tricks ... at home. You’ll also learn about the types of specialized housings, the types of weights that can be used, caps, how to clean you fidget spinners, and, of course, those tricks and games.

The fidget spinner trend has invaded our lives and our boys are just nuts over these things! DJ has even tried to make his own fidget spinners with cardboard and toothpicks!
The chapters in Fun with Fidget Spinners: 50 Super Cool Tricks and Activities are quick and simple. They cover some of the history of fidget spinners, the different types of fidget spinners, different tricks and games you can do on the fidget spinner, and even a workbook to track your fidget spinner trick progress!
The photos are fun and the book is very engaging! It was hard to pull the book away from DJ for a few minutes to write this review.
The chapter on the tricks and games is divided into different levels: beginner, intermediate, Advanced, and "uber advanced"! DJ said the "uber advanced" chapter is "super hard".
My son DJ really liked reading about the history of fidget spinners. They have been around MUCH longer than we realized! He also likes the workbook at the end of the book where he has started to track the tricks he's mastered.
DJ gives the book two thumbs up! I know your fidget spinner fanatics will too!
