Fidget Spinner

Hello everyone,

We would like to share with you, our latest “creation”.
It seems like the fidget spinner has invaded all corners of the world so why not, instead of buying more plastic objetcs that are going to be forgotten soon, making that same object of recycled plastic?
We made our own Spinner of plastic bottle caps and some old metal nut, as an ecofriendly option for something that is currently trending.
Here’s the video, please suscribe and follow us for more updates!

As much as i dont like crazy trend items, i was actually waiting for someone to do this. So much better than buying new. And the materials used are known recyclables, vs the questionable lead containing units.

Looks good, keep it up.

If you intend on selling those, it would be easier to make an injection mold of the unit. That way its easily repeatable. Or even a compression mold, so you can make the funky colored designs.

@toochi84 Thanks for your input!
Actually we are not selling them, unless someone asks us for one of them. We only wanted to show an alternative to the compulsive buying of this item.
But I do agree with you, there are other ways to do this faster for mass production, being a compression mould our favourite option.
