We’ve got a storm system heading our way and temperatures are dipping into the lower 60s.

What’s the deal with ‘fidget spinners’?

It’s the latest toy craze sweeping the country.

Fidget Spinners are the new ‘it’ toy, designed to help kids find a way to concentrate and stay focused.

They range from $5 to $500 in list price and are selling out in stores across the country.

But some schools are now banning these fidget spinners, citing that these gadgets are distracting to both students and staff.

Join us tomorrow morning as we break down this new trend and learn more about why some schools are saying ‘no’ to this new toy.
