Yes, there are now Sims Fidget Spinners…

This is the future we’ve all been waiting for – the future where our favorite video games will get their own fidget spinners!

SimGurus are showing off the recently-released EA and Sims themed fidget spinners that they got at the EA Experience store.

The price of these are 8$ and even SimGurus are not feeling it:


However, you won’t be able to get your own unless you work at EA or have been invited by EA to do a tour.

Welcome to the future everyone!

    • Probably less than a year, just like the tamagotchi trend almost 20 years ago lasted less than year, but boy where they everywhere during that time.

    • Correction: fidget spinners don’t actually help NEUROTYPICAL people concentrate. However, if you have any sort of atypical neurological disorders, such as autism or a learning disability, they can really make a difference. I have ADHD, and I really, really wish these were around when I was a kid, because they would have really helped me in school. But for most kids, they’re just a toy and a way to distract instead of help focus.

      Sort of like if it suddenly became popular to wear leg braces everywhere, whether you had any sort of medical problems or not. For the vast majority of people, they would just be uncomfortable and pointless. However, for that kid with a degenerative muscular disorder, they make all the difference.

      • Correction: They actually don’t help because I am still in school and there are some people with autism and ADHD and they still get barely any work done.

        • Are those kids normally fidgeters? Are they using the spinners correctly? They’re supposed to be for people who normally fidget, usually due to a neurological disorder but also possibly due to anxiety, giving them a way to discharge all that energy in a way that can be kept simple and low and out of sight. If they’re using them as a toy, of course it doesn’t work. There haven’t been any peer-reviewed studies with fidget spinners, likely because they’re so new, but some preliminary studies show that children with ADHD who are allowed to fidget are better able to focus. I’ve also read tons of comments by teachers with special ed kids who praise them for being a wonderful tool, when used correctly.

          Of course, if you’re playing with your cool spinner with the LED flashing lights or that glows in the dark out in the open, you’re not getting any benefits. Ideally, you keep them low (in your lap or under your desk or whatever) and you use them with one hand (usually your non-dominate hand) while your other hand is working. And you’re not looking at it. That’s how I’ve had the best success myself. Cool glow in the dark or flashing spinners are completely missing the point. Bells and whistles just increases the odds that the tool will become a distraction, because you naturally want to look at it. So do your classmates.

          • Well the just simply don’t work. Loads of schools across the UK have been banning them.

          • They keep getting banned because people around the world with no medical reason to use them keep using them as toys, not because they don’t work. Pop culture took them by storm and now most people don’t even know what they are actually for. The people who actually need them can’t use them in many places now because people who don’t need them treat them as toys.

          • No the just simply don’t work the people that actually have them most of those people have autism or ADHD and it doesn’t help them! End of argument!
