  • 5 Fidget Spinner Experiments You Won’t Believe Worked!

    Fidget SpinnersFidget spinners have instant appeal for kids and adults of all ages. Just pick one up, give it a spin, and you’re hooked!

    They’re so simple, yet so addicting. Fidgeters are quickly finding new ways to spin, stack, do tricks and collect these great new toys.

    You wouldn’t know by looking at them, but fidget spinners are also a STEM toy. People are using fidget spinners to tinker, invent and engineer new ways to play. Kids are learning physics concepts like friction, torque, and balance while using this battery- and screen-free toy!

    Check out these 5 awesome fidget spinner experiments:

    1. Ice Fidget Spinner.

    Slater Brown disassembles a fidget spinner and, using the center bearings, makes his own ice spinner. It takes a few tries to make a mold, but he gets an ice spinner spinning! That’s one cool experiment!

    2. Underwater Fidget Spinner.

    AlexGoPow puts his fidget spinner underwater for some interesting visual effects. Spinning it underwater doesn’t do much, but letting the moving spinner hit the water looks neat on camera. Hope it doesn’t rust!

    3. Fidget Spinner On Fire.

    IncredibleScience puts hand sanitizer on his fidget spinner and lights it on fire for a spinning light show. This entire video is full of impressive tricks and experiments, but the fire is at 5:00. This experiment is hot! (Note: This is dangerous and should be done with adult supervision only.)

    4. Chocolate Fidget Spinner.

    Skazzer melts up some chocolate Mini Eggs to make a delicious-looking fidget spinner that really works. Similar to the ice spinner, but this one’s edible. Sweet!

    5. Popsicle Sticks Fidget Spinner.

    Brains techKnowlogy makes DIY fidget spinners using popsicle sticks, a skateboard bearing, glue and some excellent geometry! Impressive hands-on math application.

    We love that fidget spinners are inspiring creativity, problem-solving and scientific exploration. Have fun, be safe and keep spinning!

  • Choosing Fidget Spinners and Fidget Cubes: Why Quality Counts

    Choosing Fidget Spinners and Fidget Cubes: Why Quality CountsFidget cubes and fidget spinners are HOT. Just about every kid wants one. There are many brands and styles available, so how do you choose?

    One thing we know: Quality matters. And at Learning Express Toys, our buyers have tested many varieties and only stock high-quality fidget toys.

    There are cheaper knockoffs out there, but you get what you pay for.

    Here are 8 things to know about choosing a high-quality fidget spinner:

    1. Most people want a smooth, quiet, long spin. That comes from small center bearings known as R188 bearings (used in yo-yos).
    2. Ceramic hybrid center bearings provide the smoothest spin. These ball bearings are coated in ceramic. The more ceramic, the higher quality the spinner. Higher quality bearings are more costly.
    3. Steel ball bearings are less expensive and less durable. When steel ball bearings roll against a steel collar, it causes heat and friction that ultimately can cause the spinner to break after a lot of use.
    4. Larger center bearings known as 608 bearings (used in skateboards) have friction and make a louder noise. Some people like this sensory vibration.
    5. Aluminum alloy metal fidget spinners offer ninja-like speed, spin the longest and are quietest (best for school).
    6. High-quality tri-spinners are precision balanced, slower and heftier than the metal spinners and allow you to do certain tricks.
    7. Look for caps. Spinners without caps can’t spin on the table, and the exposed bearings can get dirty. Some people prefer no caps, and are soothed by the feeling on their fingertips.
    8. Extra features like glow-in-the-dark, LEDs, patterns, and different shapes and colors make fidget spinners highly collectible!

     

    fidget cubes

    Here are 3 things to know about choosing a high-quality fidget cube:

    1. Check that all the sides work! Low-quality cubes sometimes have buttons that don’t click, wheels that don’t roll or joysticks that don’t move in all directions.
    2. The stress cube should feel good in your hand. Look for a velvet finish, instead of hard, noisy plastic. This is especially important for the worry stone side – you want it to feel satisfying to rub!
    3. Cubes vary in noise level. Since most people want fidget cubes for school, work or other places where you need to be quiet, check whether any of the sides can be pressed or rolled silently.
