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.

Pose Blades - Tri Cocoon

Pose Blades - Tri Cocoon

Pose Blades has the fidget spinner button game figured out. Time to make the body for the buttons I guess. And the first attempt looks like a home run with this mini (yeah, under 2 inch spin diameter is mini) tri-spinner....

Spinning Axles

Spinning Axles

Here's something different. Spinning axles. Essentially we have a rod or axle (I like spinning rod better now that I say it, or maybe spinrod) with a spinner at either end. Not a bad idea here Joshua Dawson from Precision Spinning Tops....

Fidget Panda - Fidget Spinner Bottle Opener

Fidget Panda - Fidget Spinner Bottle Opener

LOTR - The One Ring Fidget Spinner

LOTR - The One Ring Fidget Spinner

The LOTR One Ring Fidget Spinner is a very simple DIY project. It's actually more just putting a ring on a Kong spinner. Any ring will work really, but I thought The One Ring would make for a cool spinner concept. There are a few pieces of information that will make this go more smoothly though...

Aventador

I was a fan of the design immediately, but I wanted to see if...

Heavymetal Desktop Fidget Spinner

Heavymetal Desktop Fidget Spinner

At almost 4.25" inches wide, this spinner is meant to be used as a stationary desktop spinner. Interesting....

Stoneworks Spinners

Stoneworks Spinners

Here's something different. Spinners made from stone. Mike Stone (it's the role he was born to play!) of Stoneworks Spinners takes Agate, Jasper and Jade stones and uses diamond lapidary equipment to shape and polish these stones into hand spinners. Sounds like quite a feat to me....

Stirling Engines

Stirling Engines

Ok, these aren't fidget spinners, but after seeing a post on Facebook about Stirling Engines, I felt there were definitely some parallels and overlapping levels of interest to be found in these simple hot air stirling engines and fidget spinners. They both fall into the gadget category for sure....
