In the summer of 1993, American Katharine Heitinger filled her child’s time with her and pleased her without spending much money. However, one of the autoimmune diseases struck the mother, could no longer move her hands in a natural way because of the weakness of the nerves of her body in general, and tried hard to invent something that entertain her child, and began to paste things wrapped in newspapers to each other to be spherical layers.
After a while, Heitenger developed her idea until she came up with the first version of the current Finger Spinner, which is gaining popularity all over the world. Shew obtained a patent in 1997, but she did not have the money to maintain it. After 8 years, in 2005, the patent document expired. Small and large companies did not take advantage of this, and they began to manufacture the game for children, Attention and Autism. The Vidget Spinner, however, has not received much popularity at the beginning and has not spread globally, but has been confined to the North American region.
But a sudden change in the simple three-pronged spin-around game is that, in 2016, Forbes magazine editor James Blavka wrote that the Vidget Spinner is a game that must be part of the Office tools in 2017 because it is very useful to get rid of stress and makes people feel relieved. After that, online sales increased for “Game of the Year” and ranked number one in Amazon.com among the top 20 best-selling categories. And on “YouTube” celebrities began downloading videos of them as they make movements and maneuvers of the game and boast of their ideas the most beautiful and strange, some of them spindle the triangle between his fingers, including trying to roll on the ground, and the third linking two games one another and trying to spin the triangles together.
Like every new twist, the game has become the subject of wide controversy at the continental level. Some reports indicate that they actually contribute to getting rid of stress, it helps children with hyperactivity focus more on their lessons or others, and serve as a coach for people with autism. CNN said that the game has made many smart phone addicts and applications go away from their phones and addicted to them.
Other reports have suggested that the Vedget Spinner is just a game, as psychiatrist Stephen Bose told US News and Reports, explaining that the type of games should work more sensibly, Or processor. The “Vedget Spinner” has been overlooked, a major flaw in which it has been banned in some American schools, especially the elementary grades.
The Vidget Spinner has invaded many homes around the world, and its popularity among children, especially sales, has soared that they periodically run out of markets and producers have to work more quickly to meet demand. But the game remains a game, most likely will be doomed like its predecessors that overnight become a star light up shops, and suddenly placed in a darkened store because another star has replaced it on the shelves of shops.
