Hello again! I made another fidget spinner design. This time i had to rely on a random google image of this spinner and so i did. i copied one, i made a good template then i cut it out. i was wondering if it would spin. one side is like ^, other's like ), and the last side is ((. It turns out it spins pretty great too! If it wasn't for me discovering your idea, i wouldn't have made these 2 addicting toys. Thanks alot :)

Greeting from Bulgaria!

I made it! Your english is very well written. It was fun making it and then gluing it. I don't want to risk breaking a finely glued fidget spinner so that's why i won't cut the extra toothpick there (Also, it has extra space so it can spin freely :P). Also, it spins pretty cool! I personally got the shiniest coins from my bank and glued them. It's a pretty addictive toy and i reccommend doing it if you want to. It spins for a long time and also, as the instructions say, spin many times until the spin finally becomes smooth.

Now to my question. Would you rather make this for 0.04$ (0.04$ are the coins i used :P) or go to the shop (There's even places you can't buy it. including my region.) and waste some silly 20$?

Thanks again and greetings from Bulgaria!
