Most of you have seen the article on the main page about Fidget Spinners, here. I have not yet made one myself, but please post your pictures of your own here!  Shout out to @ZG Brickfilms for the idea.

    Much rather make one for my daughter with 2 cent parts than buy one at the store!

    Just tried the official non-Technic version. It seems a bit slow because of the friction created from holding it. It ran much faster when we put it on a baseplate on a tabletop (the engines appear to merge). My son's just started experimenting with some Technic versions from YouTube and they run faster but the length of the arms seems be to be a problem for smaller hands.

    Before the spinner craze, I made myself a top while playing around with the game dice pieces. Game die is at the center; white minifig head is the pivot point on bottom.

    I'm not convinced this fad will have much staying power. Kids move on to other things so quickly nowadays.

    In my day it was yoyos. They came and went a few times.

    ^ Learned something new today. Never heard of a kendama before.

    Agreed, @77ncaachamps. It was Wacky Wall Walkers when I was a kid. Then Tamagachis.

    My local Lego Retail Store had a variety of spinarooni contraptions made from PaB pieces.  None of them worked particularly well.

    Consensus was Technic pieces would be necessary to get a smoothly-working spinarooni.

    I wonder how well this could be translated to LEGO

    Or a slightly simpler one.

    Not mine and I didn't build it, but the gears on it reminds me of this one that someone else built:
