Cosmic Spinner Fidget Toy

My daughter and I have checked out eight spinner focus toys so far. This model made it to the coveted #1 place with ease.

Fidget toys have become a hot commodity and frequent topic of discussion. You have probably heard about the list of benefits elicited from their use. ADD, ADHD, anxiety disorders, Aspergers and Autism are just the “A-list” of examples. Bad habits are easier to overcome for some. Enhanced focus is a benefit for me. Downtime is a bit more enjoyable, too.

This is an EDC [Every Day Carry] toy. I had no idea until I did some research that there are at least fifty-five styles and types of fidget spinners. Then there are other fidget toys such as chains and cubes. You have more than thirty options from which to choose. It is a phenomenon!

The Cosmic Spinner Rainbow Fidget Toy is the cream of the crop of the eight spinners that my daughter and I have tested out so far. The look is among the best with the rainbow effect looking great, whether stationary or in use.

The durability is excellent as it is stainless steel and has a fast 606 ball bearing. It has real weight to it which is perfect for stability. I can flick it on my desk without having to hold it down as some models need. These traits are more for teens or adults. Parents and caregivers should consider if the child is old enough for this toy, as it could conceivably cause damage if mishandled. There are no sharp edges to worry about, however. Even though it is heavy metal, it does not pose a threat to even small fingers.

The size is ideal for single-handed play. Even my daughter who has tiny hands can use it in just her left or right hand. The most common size spinner is too large to do much that way even for me. The speed is better than any other I own.

Spins can last a good while. Most often I see longer than 4-minute turns. While writing this review, I timed them.

Duration Trial 1: 4:26

Duration Trial 2: 4:39

Duration Trial 3: 4:39

Duration Trial 4: 4:41

As you can see, the Cosmic Spinner Rainbow Fidget Toy performed consistently well. My intent was simply to document routine results. It is capable of longer times if that is your goal.

POAO Tri-Spinner Fidget/ Focus Toy

My daughter and I have checked out eight spinner focus toys so far. This model made our top three list.

Fidget toys have become a hot commodity and frequent topic of discussion. You have probably heard about the list of benefits elicited from their use. ADD, ADHD, anxiety disorders, Aspergers and Autism are just the “A-list” of examples. Bad habits are easier to overcome for some. Enhanced focus is a benefit for me. Downtime is a bit more enjoyable, too.

The POAO Tri-Spinner Fidget Toy was impressive from the start. With a durable ABS construction, this focus toy has heft and can take some punishment. Dropped on the floor many times, yet it is no worse for wear. It has professional inline skate 608 ceramic ball bearings. All four of the bearings are interchangeable and removable allowing for customization.

The spinner looks smart. It does not have multiple colors or lights as some do, but I think it is cool. It is plain black besides the inscription “POAO” and the steel inner and outer rings of the bearings. The center caps are removable if you wish to spin it on a pencil or a pen for another option. This focus gadget works well on any flat surface. I tend to use it on my desk. I also spin it between my index finger and thumb using either one or both hands. Sometimes I transfer the toy to either the finger or thumb, so it balances as it spins.

Of the eight spinners I own, the finger pads on this version are the best for controlling the toy. They have a texture that makes for a better grip than the slippery plastic ones. The grips help, but you will want to get used to this one before attempting tricks. I can vouch for the two-minute spin claim. It has been consistently getting spins longer than that when I have timed them.

It is slightly heavier (while slightly smaller in circumference) than the most popular size spinners. Dropping it on anything but the most padded surfaces will result in a racket. If you were thinking of sneaking it into a classroom that forbids spinners– just do not do it. The first major slip-up will result in every head turning your way. The toy itself barely makes a noise. It has a faint and strangely satisfying whir.
