Idk what the big problem is, it's not bothering people. Some people might just like collecting them tbh.

How exactly do yo-yos work again? ;)




You tie them to your finger and throw them at the floor. Then you can maneuver it and the string in various ways to do tricks and whatnot

I think the throwing part is really more of a SPINNING thing. It's basically a fidget spinner ON A STRING.

Perhaps the overexposed memetic nature, such as Harambe, and I took an arrow to the knee, or worst of all Frozen. This may be due in part due to the meaningless nature of its application, to which it can be applied to anything, and honestly...


I doubt most people care for it as a fidget toy, but to poke fun at autism or something. That being said, I do not use social media nor keep up with the meme trends, so I would say it is out of earshot.



Unlike Frozen.

Aliens hovering over the planet, about to make first contact with a technology primitive but intelligent species evolved from apes. One alien finds some interesting fact about how this ape species is so fascinated about taking nude pictures of themselves posted on unsecured social networks and another alien discovers they invented fidget spinners.

But there's a difference in functionality that makes yo-yo's far superior.

I honestly don't think there's a high horse to be jumped on about whether yo-yos or fidget spinners are better. It's more of a hole you jump into.

the wal-mart store i was at has the whole aisle next to the checkout full of fidget spinner $5-- might as well donate the money to victims of hurricane. "instead of spending money on this will you donate bro"?

this thing probably cost 30 cents to make ?

Our local science-toy store is owned by a Yo-yo enthusiast, who decided to form his own leagues, and around town-festival times, you can see whole groups of teens showing off their Rocking the Cradle practice.

(Me, I could never keep it spinning long enough to do that, and keep momentum to zip it back up again.)

Fidgit spinners, you just sort of...twiddle, with your thumb and fingers, to feel better. The same could be said about MANY things.

Kids these days have the need to constantly be distracted. I'm 9 years older than my brother and the difference between us alone is surprising. He can't even shower without his iPad being nearby for him to watch stuff on Netflix.

They're trendy, and kids think if they get a fidget spinner they will be cool kids along with the others.

I honestly never had a fidget spinner i always thought they were useless

Simple people are easily amused by stuff that spins or appears shiny.
