Fidget Spinners

Fidget spinners, or more generally, hand spinners and fidget toys burst onto the scene in 2016. At best a cure for anxiety, or AD/HD, fidget spinners have taken on a collectible flair in the EDC community with professional quality machine shops and CNC milled models becoming more popular as the industry grows. Spinnermint is a news source, review and guide to the new world of fidget spinners and fidget toys.

Fidget Spinners Go Mainstream

Fidget Spinners Go Mainstream

It's an interesting time in the fidget spinner industry. We sit on the precipice of the mainstream adoption of fidget spinners. Fidget spinners were, or are, somewhat lumped in with the more well known, recently widespread EDC (everyday carry) community. You're typical EDCer will have some kind...

The Circulator

The Circulator

Spinetic is really becoming the McDonald's of the spinner industry. And I mean that in a McRib and Big Mac way, not a 1985 Chicken McNuggets way. Whether that comparison makes sense is for you to decide, but what I mean by it is that they're becoming ubiquitous in the industry. They are everywhere....

5 Minute Flange Spinner

5 Minute Flange Spinner

The DIY King Revan TK-421 brings us this very simple spinner design. The 5 minutes refers to both how long it takes to make as well as the potential spin time. And the materials list is under 5 items as well. Now that's my kind of DIY project. Below are links to materials you'll need to complete...

The Valkyrie

The Valkyrie

The Valkyrie from Alpha-Bot Industries is blazing a trail. Not necessarily with it's design (though that's to be admired) but in its distribution method. Previously, Amazon was reserved territory for clones and knockoffs. But Alpha-Bot is bringing their unique design to the hordes through the ultimate...

The Phat Boy Eclipse

The Phat Boy Eclipse

What have they done to my Phat Boy? He's been anodized in an anti-reflective Jett Black coating. Smooth. I like it. And Steampunk didn't even notify me of this! I had to find out on my own. That puts the punk in steampunk. I can forgive, but I'll never forget....

Tri THRAXX

Tri Thraxxx

The boys over at Thraxx EDC have been busy. Capitalizing on the well received Thraxx Spinner they've just released this prototype for the predictable 3 legged version. At this rate, I expect a quad Thraxx available by Christmas. It's not that I don't like seeing all of my favorite spinners grow more...

The Hyperion Song Spinner

The Hyperion Song Spinner

We're giving away all of our Russian spinners in light of recent circumstances and escalating aggression between...me and my girlfriend. Ok, it's not just Russian spinners, I'm giving away all of them. Except the really cool ones. I keep those. Nevertheless, this simple brass design from Fingers...

Grail Spinners: The Top 5 Most Coveted Spinners

Grail Spinners: The Top 5 Most Coveted Spinners

The Holy Grail Spinners. The Mount Rushmore of fidget spinners. The best of the best. Which 5 fidget spinners make the list? It's a subjective question to a degree, but this is somewhat driven by supply as well. And maybe price. A spinner like the Brass Spinetic X is a great little EDC spinner, but...

The iFDGT

The iFDGT

The iFDGT from Venom Defense & Design headed by Sam Passenger has been taking the world of spinning by storm. In an industry with seemingly hundreds of new makers and designs popping up by the week, Venom D&D has been a pioneer and mainstay in the industry. With the iFDGT, and it's countless iterations...

Ring Spinners

Ring Spinners

Ring spinners are a type of fidget spinner that we don't cover much on Spinnermint. Not because we don't like them, but because they are a lot more obscure than your regular hand spinner. Ring spinners are very similar to fidget spinners with the main difference being a larger bearing with a much...
