The Popularity of Promotional Fidget Spinners

  • Jun 19, 2017

Promotional Fidget Spinners and Fidget Cubes are One of the Hottest Trade Show Give-Aways in Years--But Why?

Austin, Texas: For the past 3-4 months, fidget spinners and fidget cubes have been the latest craze among all age groups--but it is hard to understand the reason behind them.

You have probably seen these three-pronged devices or toys --which started at schools and have grown exponentially.

Some believe the fidget spinners started as a tool to help autistic children cope with concentration issues---but they have soon turned into a fad.

Is the fad craze over?  According to researchers, spinners are still tremendously popular, though no longer at its peak.

We have sold hundreds of orders of imprinted fidget spinners as well as fidget cubes.  These have included basic fidget spinners, as well as LED blinking light fidget spinners and even Bluetooth enabled spinners.

They have been used for branding purposes at conventions and trade shows for lawyers, bankers, doctors--as well as for consumer shows like Home and Garden and the niche is no longer for children alone.

How long will the spinner craze last?  No one can guess. But we are still printing over 100 orders per week of these gizmos and people seem to like them.

Is there logic behind them?  Probably not--only that they are popular and people like to hand out the latest gadget with their name on it.

Will these promotional fidget spinners be around a year or so from now?  

Well, if they are like selfie sticks and other popular crazes--then demand will slow down, but not go away for several years.

Happy Promoting!
