The Fidget spinners were … an interesting trend some time ago and it now seems that Epic Games could add something to Fortnite.
Epic Games likes to stay in fashion and routinely adds dances and other content in Fortnite that are relevant to pop culture. Examples include the various emotes dab and the plethora of dancing emotes from popular pop, rock and rap songs.

So, what are still the fidget spinners?
Fidget spinners are anti-stress toys that rotate on a central ball bearing. They usually have an odd number of sides, like 3 or 5, and are designed to rotate extremely gently. We have included a photo below.
Fidget spinners have become a marketing trend throughout 2017 and 2018, gaining momentum as a trendy toy for teens. Some devices even cost more than $ 100 because of extremely expensive production materials and military grade bearings.
Although these devices relieve stress and anxiety, there is no scientific evidence of their effectiveness. They have even been touted as a way to treat ADHD and autistic symptoms, but again, no scientific evidence has shown such effects.
If you feel stressed or generally anxious, we recommend sticking to the old classic stress ball.
