ST. LOUIS (KMOX) – The fidget spinner is the newest “hot” toy among many, but many teachers despise them.

Students have gone from clicking pens to using fidget spinners – driving teachers up the nearest wall.

The spinning device is plastic and made of three-prongs, and is believed to help adults and kids who fidget. It is said to even help those who have ADHD, autism and anxiety.

According to the Huffington Post, teachers are starting to notice fidget spinners becoming more of a distraction in the classroom than a helpful relief tool.

Some schools have started to ban or confiscate them. Principal Kate Ellison told The Chicago Tribune that the toys became popular overnight at Washington Elementary School. They were such a commodity that their administration sent letters to parents banning them.

Although fidget spinners are the new craze, maybe reconsider letting kids take them to school.
