Fidget Spinner – the Fad of 2017

So it appears that the fidget spinner is the new fad. When we were in Pennsylvania in April at the Nicholas Train shop, my son wanted a fidget spinner they had for sale there. I was like “what is this?” Next thing I know everybody is doing videos on fidget spinners. Another trendy toy or item like the slap bracelet, rubik’s cube. Will the trend last?

A Fidget Spinner and Mr. Spock on a train – with Thomas the Tank Engine. The fidget spinner was borrowed from TheyMightBeBricks. The trains are Bachmann trains – the Star Trek train and Thomas. The Flat cars are from Chuggington. The train layout is HO Scale and 4×8 feet wide. The trains are controlled with block controlled wiring – the sections of track are individually borrowed and controlled by switches.
