So what does it mean, on a societal level, that these fidget spinners are becoming so ubiquitous?

That people like to spend money on things they enjoy regardless of the perceived usefulness?

Lol. I think that's a timeless trait of people with an extra buck to spend.
The salient question regards the "fidget" aspect of it. People more nervous these days?

Its a fad. 4 people at my work have "fidget cubes" and all but one have even touched it.

Do you remember those little rubber fluid filled squeezy stress reliever guys that you would squeeze, and his ears and eye stalks would pop out?
Maybe Massdrop should sell those, too. :)

I do, they were all the rage of the late 90's. But you know what they say everything old is new again. :P

Please don't accuse me of trolling.
I asked a genuine question regarding a trend I've been seeing across the internet. Namely the proliferation of these fidget gadgets. And I'm genuinely interested in understanding why this is.
And what better place to find people's opinions than a discussion of the fidget spinner.
I don't know who you are, so I'll let you comment go. But never accuse me of trolling.
