Learning fidget spinning skills on Youtube

I grew tired of just simple spinning. I was ready to take my new hobby to the next level? So I took to Youtube to learn how to do spinner tricks. Here are the top videos I found useful when upping my skills. Whether you’re a beginner or have been spinning for a long time, there is something to be learned in each of these videos.

Brian, a young Filipino maker, has a channel called Brains techKnowlogy. In this project video, he builds two spinners using little more than Popsicle sticks, some coins, skate bearings, and the most basic household tools.

I love how many young makers have spinner projects online. Here, 14 year old Slingshot King makes a handsome wooden spinner out of some African Padauk wood, aluminum rod, and a skate bearing.

You can find a whole slew of fidget spinner projects on YouTube and on Instructables. One of the more fun things about these little fidget toys is that they can be made out of so many different materials. You’ll find them made out of everything from plastic, wood, paper, and metal using parts from the hardware store, the kitchen trash, and the loose change in your pockets. And, if you’re lazy and just want to buy one, there are plenty of different models of them available on Etsy.

Here are a few of the more fun, over-the-top fidget creations to date. Search on “best fidget spinner” on YouTube, Instructables, etc. to see dozens of additional projects.

We found the best performance steel bearings in the marketplace, ones that even rivaled spin times of many ceramic bearing spinners. Combined with a competitive price and 6 fun colors, this spinner is a bargain has become a fan favorite.

Just getting into the whole bottle-flipping craze? Well that’s done. That’s so 2016. The world is a completely different place, and that is in no way an exaggeration. Bottle-flipping is dead, or at least being steadily eclipsed by the new fad that kids can’t get enough of: fidget spinners.

Actually, yes. At the end of the day, this fad isn’t bad. The clanking and banging of bottle-flipping is distracting. The crafting of colorful rubber-band bracelets with the rainbow loom was all right, although a bit spendy and created trails of mini rubber bands and unused rubber-band bracelets everywhere.

This fidget hand spinner is perfect for the beginner, as it’s made from durable ABS plastic. That means as you’re getting started, you’re not going to ruin it if you scratch or bump it, unlike other 3d printed versions or metal spinners. So have fun, table spin it, spin it with one hand or two. Perfect for all ages. Spin your worries away.

Fidget spinners are little gadgets, smaller than your palm, with two or three prongs with circles in them, along with a circular pad in the middle where you hold the device with your finger and thumb. Then you twirl it.

As the kids get more comfortable with the gadgets, they spin the things on the ground and other surfaces, including their face. And there are already innumerable trick-shot videos littering YouTube involving fidget spinners because that’s how Generation Z communicates with each other apparently.
