When it comes to the breakout toys of 2017, Fidget Spinners are serious business. What started as one thing expanded into an entire category of Fidgets - divisive as to whether they're toys, tools or just a fad that will eventually go the way of the Pog. For now, they're still hot, and the folks at Zuru Toys have some of the highest-quality offerings out there, and they recently sent us some for review. Bringing iconic superheroes into the mix, they've licensed characters from DC Comics and Marvel, bringing them together for a colorful collection of Fidget Spinners and Fidget Cubes - the original Fidget Cubes as developed by Antsy Labs! 

Zuru Justice League Fidget Spinners

Just in time for Warner Bros. JUSTICE LEAGUE, kids can enjoy fidgets based on Wonder Woman, Batman and Superman. My personal favorite? That's an easy one - the Batman Fidget Spinner. It looks like a Batarang, and spins for a really long time. While the art of fidgeting has largely been left to The Rock Daughters™ around here, I'm digging this one!

Avengers Fidget Cubes

Marvel Studios' AVENGERS: INFINITY WAR is still a little ways off, but if you want to assemble your own team of fun Fidgets, Zuru has styles including the some big frenemies - Captain America and Iron Man. Or, you want to play with your "friend from work?" Hulk is here, too - straight from his appearance in THOR: RAGNAROK. Sadly, the famous son of Asgard is missing from the initial run.

Check out the full line of Fidgets from Zuru Toys on the Zuru Fidget site. These make great stocking stuffers and are available at retailers everywhere!
