Every few years, a new trend, a trick, a toy, from which everyone just goes crazy, appears among the children. Well, you remember how we had it with tetris, yo-yo, tamagotchi, and so on. And now, modern children have a new madness - spinners.
Initially, this thing was invented in order to help children (and not only) cope with excess energy and even anxiety and problems with attentiveness.
The idea is as old as the world - to take your hands and focus attention, something like a rosary.
Over the past six months, the popularity of spinners has rapidly increased: in the US, every 25th has it.
Nevertheless, many parents and teachers are sure that for children it is the opposite - an extra distraction and even a danger.
So, one boy spinner flew straight into the face and cut his lip - the child was put 30 stitches.
Another mother laid out in the FB an alarming post about how one of the spinner's discs hit her daughter in the throat and had to be removed surgically.
Even parents often complain that spinners easily become entangled in the hair of children, so they have to be cut later.
A week ago, the German customs even deliberately destroyed 39 tons (!) Of spinners for security reasons.
