    Kinda magical when a bunch of them fall from the tree. They always take me back to my childhood.

    I guess I never grew up. I still keep a couple of extra bricks of fire crackers & an assortment of other fireworks stored in my garage. You just never know when a spontaneous bottle rocket war might happen. It's a great way to alleviate stress or boredom. LOL

    I've never seen one of these either, so I don't really have an opinion of them. This is what my grandson is into now and loves it. He's almost as fast as this! :-)

    When I taught sped I loved them because some of my students truly benefited from them. Now it's just some bs fad that everyone is jumping on, making it difficult for those who honestly need them.

    I type quickly, so my fidget spinner is actually the internet...for better or worse.

    I used to have three of these great tai chi metal balls my dad brought back from China which I would spin around, but then I got into juggling them and then I kind of forgot about them (we had to learn how to juggle in middle school...how weird is that, lol...). I have no idea where there are now.

    There's like a whole tai chi thing about this...

    Maybe they were Kung Fu metal balls. I'm not really sure.

    But they were definitely from China.

    My young sons seem to think so, but that will change when they discover girls.

    Last week my 12 yo grandson told me how he bought some online when they first came out and sold them at school for high profit. LoL
    He is quite a character (just like Gramps).
