18 Things That Were The Fidget Spinner Of The 2000s

Fidget spinners are out of control.

Almost every kid in America has one. Made for people with ADHD, autism or anxiety, this handy tool keeps your attention focused and gives you an outlet for your fidgets. However, we didn’t always have spinners. Back in the 2000s, we had a whole different array of toys. Ranging from Tech-Decks to Tamagotchis, here are the decade old fidget spinners.

1. Those mini skateboards you flipped with your fingers.
