May 25, 2017 – The Fidget Spinner: This Calming Toy Invented By Florida Grandmother Catherine Hettinger Is About To Take Over The World

The latest internet craze is a new calming toy called Fidget Spinner.

The new toy made to ease tension is gradually hitting offices around the world.

It was originally developed to help autistic kids and others with special education needs.

Here is all you need to know about the small ball-bearing toys that can be rotated with fingers.

The toy was first invented by a Florida granny, Catherine Hettinger in 1993. She patented the product in 1997 but her patent expired before the fidget spinner craze because she didn’t have money to renew it.

Sadly, she will not be making a dime from the success of her product.
