The spinner hit the market in 2017 and has captured the attention of millions of people around the world. Today, an anti-stress toy can be seen in the hands of anyone: a schoolboy, a successful businessman, a simple worker or a clerk. This little 'turntable' is very popular with all segments of the population. And manufacturers are happy to offer spinners in different configurations, colors, sizes and models. The market offers a wide selection of both serial models and rare collection items.

How to choose a spinner

What should you pay attention to when choosing a spinner? Of course, the first thing that catches your eye is the design. Of course, it is very important that the look of the toy is liked by its owner. Do not forget that the main task of the 'turntable' is to relieve stress and help you focus. Therefore, the design of the body must correspond to the task at hand. He should not irritate his owner and negative associations. There are also other selection criteria:

  1. Balancing. The quality and spin time will depend on how well balanced the spinner is. Before buying, it is necessary to twist the product. Extraneous shocks, vibrations, rapid braking of the gadget – they indicate that the device is poorly balanced. If the spinner is ordered through the online store, and there is no way to test the purchase in advance, we strongly recommend that you familiarize yourself with the characteristics of the model and read reviews about it. The quality of the original model may differ significantly from a replica or analogue made in another country.
  2. Manufacturing material. Fidget spinners can be made of plastic, wood, glass, metal, or a combination of several materials. This will be reflected primarily in price, durability and design. It is generally accepted that models with a metal case last the longest. They are also the most expensive. Wooden ones will be much cheaper. But, in these 'turntables' it is very important to pay attention to the quality of execution and balance. In order to improve the rotation of such a gadget, it is customary to add metal parts to the petals.
  3. Manufacturer country. Of course, today it cannot be said that a spinner made in America will be cooler than a Chinese one. But, the country of origin can significantly affect the cost. Therefore, a similar model produced in the CIS countries and China, other things being equal, may have a completely different price.
  4. Design. Today, the design of a spinner can differ not only in the number of petals, but also in the number of additional bearings. Usually they are embedded in the edges to better balance the model. Their presence or absence cannot be an unambiguous plus or minus, but they can affect the operation of a particular model in different ways. The main bearing is always in the center of the housing. How long the toy will serve its owner will depend on its quality. The bearing class is usually designated by Latin letters (A, B, E, C) with a number. The higher the number, the higher the quality of the main bearing.
  5. Before purchasing any model, try it in action. Fortunately, all the pros and cons of the 'turntable' are immediately apparent. There are ten best spinners in our rating. These models pleased not only with their high 'driving' qualities, but also distinguished themselves by their interesting design. And some are also equipped with additional options.

The best spinners with two faces

Fidget spinners with two blades are called singles. They are distinguished by their compact size and simple design. But despite this, the 'turntables' are not inferior to their competitors in terms of rotation speed and aerodynamics.

Spinner HETAI

Rating: 4.9

Spinner HETAI

The first place in the rating is occupied by a model that is distinguished by its quality, expensive and very laconic design, as well as a high degree of ergonomics. Looking at this spinner, it becomes clear that manufacturers have spared neither time nor money for its development and production. The toy fits well in the hand, it has no problems with balance and quality of rotation. In addition, the product is equipped with an additional option: a heating coil is built inside, which, if necessary, performs the function of a lighter.

Looking at this spinner, you understand that this is not just a toy, but a status thing and its owner does not want to save even on such trifles. From here we can single out only one drawback of the product – this is the price. It is much above average, and not everyone is willing to pay that much.

Spinner 'Anchor'

Rating: 4.8

Spinner 'Anchor'

This is a striking representative of the marine collection of spinners. The model got its name due to the original design: the edges are made in the form of anchors, the texture is stylized like a tree. Each blade is encrusted with artificial stones (fionites) and is additionally balanced. The unusual shape does not interfere with smooth rotation.

The claimed rotation time is about three minutes in one position. It all depends on the surface on which it will occur. However, this model is collectible, and this indicator is not the most important. The price of the 'Anchor', like that of the HETAI model, is above average. However, despite this, many collectors are eager to get this spinner in their collection.

The best spinners with three faces

The construction of representatives of this rating category is slightly more complicated than that of singles. Three-blade spinners are classics of anti-stress toys. To speed up the rotation, the edges are equipped with weighting materials.

Spinner VOLVAETEC CARAMBIT

Rating: 4.9

Spinner VOLVAETEC CARAMBIT

Volvaetec Carambit is loved by customers due to its unusual design. The spinner is made of metal. The appearance is thought out to the smallest detail: sharp lines, a strict form, a well-developed color scheme. It is thanks to her that the 'turntable' got its name – 'Karambit'. The iridescent color instantly mesmerizes not only the owner, but also those around him.

But, despite the original design, there is nothing superfluous in it. Like any quality spinner, the Volvaetec fits securely in the hand and is well balanced. The declared rotation time is up to two minutes. However, in the reviews, users note a rotation time of three minutes.

Spinner 'Space 1'

Rating: 4.8

Spinner 'Space 1'

This is the only model in the rating, which is produced in the Russian Federation, while it is not a bit inferior in quality to foreign samples. The spinner body is made of wood. To ensure that the product is well balanced and rotation does not cause problems, a metal ball is located in each face.

Of course, the space design of the model is worth highlighting. Perhaps this is the very case when the drawing really contributes to concentration, and does not distract attention to itself. Another plus of 'Cosmos 1' is the price. Despite the high quality and good design, this spinner can be purchased at a very affordable price.

The best spinners with four faces

Four-blade models are also called quad spinners. Unlike the competitors in our rating, they are more overall and do not always fit easily in your pocket.

FIDGET SPINNER 'SHURIKEN'

Rating: 4.9

FIDGET SPINNER 'SHURIKEN'

Visually, the model is made in the same shape as VOLVAETEC CARAMBIT, only with four sides. The body is made of three materials: metal, plastic and wood. But, despite this, the spinner is made in a single color scheme. In shape, it looks more like a shuriken (a type of Japanese weapon). Therefore, the product is especially popular with fans of Japanese culture and ninja.

From the point of view of technical characteristics, the spinner is balanced, fits snugly in the hand, no vibrations or beats are observed during rotation. The price segment is above average.

Spinner 'Jolly Roger'

Rating: 4.8

Spinner 'Jolly Roger'

From the name it becomes clear that the spinner is executed in a pirate style. The base is presented in the form of a skull with a scar, the edges are in the form of bones. The surface of the 'spinner' is textured, but despite this, the grip of the spinner remains comfortable.

This is exactly the model that is recommended to be purchased in the original version. The so-called 'Jolly Roger' lines have serious balance problems. Weight, as a rule, is shifted towards one or two faces at once. This provokes a quick braking of the spinner. Remember that this model can only be purchased at a trusted store. Original models have no balance problems.

The best multifaceted spinners

These rating models differ from the above ones in the number of edges and size. These indicators affect only their appearance, and the speed and duration of rotation are even better for some models.

Spinner FIDGET IRON MEN

Rating: 4.9

Spinner FIDGET IRON MEN

The spinner will appeal to all fans of Iron Man comics. The creators of this model were inspired by the work of the Marvel Film Studio. The model differs from other participants in the rating not only in design, but also in construction. There are no additional bearings in the petals. The faces themselves are made in the form of expanding triangles.

The main rotating element is located in the central part, under the triangle. IRON MEN is made of lightweight aluminum. Sold complete with storage box. But, the manufacturer warns that when spinning, the spinner can create strong noises. Therefore, you should pay attention to this before purchasing. Otherwise, there are no complaints about the model.

Spinner FIDGET 'Metal Flower'

Rating: 4.8

'Metal flower'

Rightfully, this model bears the title of the most fascinating metal spinner. Colored stripes traced on the petals create a hypnotic spiral effect. From the name it is clear that the body of the model is made of metal.

The 'metal flower' is distinguished by perfect balancing and excellent quality. Does not create noise during rotation, fits snugly in the hand, the rotation time, according to some reviews, reaches four minutes. Just the perfect model. But, and the price of this work of art is also not small. Therefore, either ardent collectors or wealthy people allow themselves such a spinner. This model may well be attributed to the rank of status things.

The best spinners of the original form

Truly original design models fell into this category of the rating. They are distinguished not only by the number of faces, but also by their shape. Moreover, they have all the qualities of classic spinners.

Spinner BIOHAZARD

Rating: 4.9

Spinner BIOHAZARD

The model belongs to collectible spinners. Many people think that beige heart and dark petals are a bit boring concept. But, in fact, performed by BIOHAZARD according to all the canons of 'good taste'. Interesting shape, laconic colors, nothing more. In addition, the constructors of this model are worth admiring.

Despite the complex shape of the petals, the manufacturer managed to maintain the perfect balance and ensure a continuous rotation process for up to four minutes. From all of the above, it becomes clear that the model does not belong to the budget category, but at the same time it fully justifies its price.

Spinner MAGNUM

Rating: 4.8

Spinner MAGNUM

The model will not leave indifferent fans of the good old revolver. The spinner is made in the form of a drum with cartridges. It is believed that it is this 'turntable' that best combines 'audacity and chic'. And, most of the reviews are devoted specifically to external data. It's worth noting that the design is truly amazing. When you hold MAGNUM in your hands, you forget that the spinner has some other characteristics besides appearance.

But our experts did not disregard a few 'driving' qualities of the model. The design is really well thought out. The bearings are made in the form of sleeves and fit tightly enough in the holes. This prevents them from flying out during rotation. Balancing, comfort during operation – at the highest level. Without bending your heart, we can say that the model is well executed not only externally.
