Novelty spinners offer a fun twist on the everyday fidget spinner. They may be small spinners attached to a writing utensil or they may be full-sized spinners that light up.
Whatever you choose, make sure the novelty of it goes along with your company's message. And remember that novelty spinners may be more distracting than other spinners; so if your goal is to raise awareness about these devices helping students to focus, you may want to opt for a standard printed fidget spinner.Themed Fidget Spinners
Themed spinners are truly unique. They often offer designs or shapes on the prongs that are industry or event-specific. They can be really useful marketing tools for industry trade shows, for example. Themed spinners are also good for events such as holiday parties or sporting events.

When it comes to toys, safety is often a concern - especially since these items are so wide reaching in their audience. Both adults and kids (including kids under 12) enjoy these toys.

(CPSIA). CPSIA-compliant fidget spinners adhere to the standards for lead and phthalates, are third-party tested, and are tracked for proof of compliance.Where Does My Imprint Go?
The total size of a standard fidget spinner is 3x3" with the imprint area being .75" in diameter. You can choose to pad or screen print in either a single color or in full, brilliant color. No matter which you choose, your logo will be right in the center for all to see.
