 A few city schools have banned the fidget tri-spinner toys after they found a number of students bringing it to school and playing during break time.The fidget spinners are popular, and are available for sale at toy stores, online and even at several crossroads.

The vice-principal of a school that banned the toy said, “It is becoming a distraction in class. Several children are bringing them to schools. Even in the West, some schools have banned the toy. It diverts the attention of the kid and will not allow them to focus in class.”

The fidget spinner is a three-pronged, palm-sized piece of plastic or metal which spins aro-und a central weighted disc. It is said to be the modern version of the old spinning top.
