My Kids Didn’t Get the Memo That the Fidget Spinner Thing Is Done

Latest Toy Craze Fidget Spinners, Wildly Popular With Kids

These things are going to be the death of me.

These words actually came out of my mouth the other day:

The next person who says the words Fidget Spinner is punished.

Yep, that’s me, and no, I am not proud of it, but it’s all my kids talk about.

They each have like ten of them and they want more. The ones that light up, the ones that make noise, and the ones that can bake muffins. But ten is not enough. They want them all.

Lou: 'My Wife’s Muffin-Based Business Idea Is Her Worst Idea Ever'

This was a brilliant toy idea, but unfortunately, the woman who invented them let the patent expire years ago, and has not made a dollar. What a kick in the face. You make one of the most popular toys in toy history and have nothing to show for it. The worst part is you have to leave your house, and when you do, you will inevitably see at least three people a day holding them.

This is a cautionary tale, and it’s got me to thinking that I need to patent all my crap ideas before they get stolen.
