Most likely, within the past few months, you have seen someone using a fidget spinner.
The small devices have taken the world by storm and have managed to nab a spot into pop culture. Recently, the fidget spinner has just reached a whole other level of infamy. Kim Kardashian just released her own version of the popular toy.
On her Instagram account, she posted photos of a few new items that her fans could purchase for Father’s Day. One of which was entitled the “Daddy Money Fidget Spinner”. Yes, we cannot make up stuff like this. Her version of the fidget spinner is in the shape of a golden money sign. The middle part of the item, where one would place their fingers, reads “daddy”. These Kim K fidget spinners are currently on sale for $15 and would ship to their new home in one week.
The other item that was announced at the same time was a “Little Keeks Keychain”. For those dads who are obsessed with Kim, this may make the perfect gift. The small keychain has a photo of Kim as a kid. Just like the fidget spinner, the item is also on sale on kimoji.com for $10.
For those who are unaware of the fidget spinner origins, it was created by Catherine Hettinger. According to Bustle, the device was made to help “distract young children, so that they could play with a toy that could soothe their nerves.”
Believe it or not, fidget spinners have been around for quite some time. Since Catherine “surrendered the patent over 10 years ago” says Bustle, another company recreated her idea which eventually took off.
For those 90s kids out there reading this article, fidget spinners are essentially like the Pokemon cards of this generation. Granted, those pieces of paper did not soothe our nerves, they became a popular part of our upbringing. For those kids who want to collect all of the fidget spinners, this pimping device might be a nice addition to the bunch.
