Stores can't keep "fidget spinners" in-stock!

The mania for fidget spinners — the 3-inch twirling gadgets taking over classrooms and cubicles — is unlike many other toy crazes. They're not made by a major company, timed for the holiday season, or promoted in TV commercials. They're more easily found at gas stations or 7-Eleven than at big toy chains. [Source]

A simple search for "fidget spinners" on YouTube returned hundreds of videos.

But what, exactly, are they?  And why are they so popular?  And why all the controversy?  

A lot of schools are now "No Spin Zones" because they are too distracting, but some parents say that they help kids stay calm and focused in class.

Your thoughts?
