Need a fidget spinner? Mall kiosks open to serve demand for hot toy

Posted June 5

Fidget spinners, used with focus, have benefits

Mall kiosks across the Triangle are opening up to sell the season's hottest toy - the fidget spinner.

You can buy these things just about anywhere - gas stations, toy stores (Learning Express claims to be "your fidget spinner headquarters)", grocery stores, hardware store and lots of other places.

Or, you can go to a mall kiosk that sells just about only the fidget spinner. As I've described these toys before, the two- or three-pronged gadget rests on your fingers so that you can spin them. They are designed, according to manufacturers, to help those with ADHD, autism and other issues, joining other kinds of "fidget" toys that help some people focus. In reality, just about every kid, whether they need it to concentrate, has one.

Northgate Mall in Durham is the most recent mall to host a fidget spinner kiosk or cart. Fidget World is now open at the mall across from Northgate's Food Court.

Elsewhere ...

The Streets at Southpoint in Durham have a kiosk called Fidget Spinners, which sits in the lower level between Nordstrom and Macy's near Ann Taylor.

Triangle Town Center in Raleigh also has a cart called Fidget Spinners, which sits near the food court.

Crabtree Valley Mall has Fidgets N More on the lower level near Sears.

I still prefer the Freiden Spinner ...
