Before we left Japan for Canada in March of 2017, the kids had never heard of fidget spinners. Aiko and Shin quickly found that fidget spinners were all the rage among their classmates in Canada. Seeing this, we decided to bring some back for their friends in Japan, but it turns out we were too late, the fidget spinner craze had already hit Japan by the time we came back in July, 2017. It also turns out the Japanese call them hand spinners, not fidget spinners.
Special thanks to Srinivas Adireddi for sharing what breakfast is like in India.
Do you have fidget spinners where you’re from?
