Wolves or spinners?

Have you read the Amazon reviews?

I had a friend who wore his Three Wolf Moon shirt regularly. But his last name was Wolf.

My wife has bought my son four of spinners over the last few weeks. Why? Because another boy in his class has four of them. Gotta keep up with the Joneses.

Wolves are cool.

I would think the cube would be more effective as well.

My son has like three of these spinners and spins them all the time but yes it's 1000x than the bottle-flip stuff (which he has expanded into "whatever-he's-holding-flip", so that's a bonus).
I don't really know if it helps him focus, or is a way to remain distracted. He says it helps but school ended recently so there wasn't much of an experimental period.

Fads, and it just takes a few Instas or ex-Vines to get big.

Isn't the ironic wolf thing years old at this point?

Yeah, but follow along. Evidently the under 13 crowd now wears them un-ironically. The whole thing is mutating.

Gallium Spinners. Shiny and cool but break as soon as you drop them and melt as soon as it gets too hot.
