As I’ve stated before, fidget spinners need some hook these days to stand out in a very crowded category. The LuckyBaby Fidget Spinner stands out with a distinctive, single-plane design and colorful styling on its metal frame.
At only 2.7 in (7 cm) across and being a single plane design, the LuckyBaby is amongst the smallest spinners. Spin time on a sub-max push (on its “good side,” see below) was timed at 4 minutes 3 seconds on my third spin. That spin time performance is above average.
Because of its squat design, you feel the weight with this spinner more than others. It’s also rather noisy, particularly when not being used on a flat surface. This is not a great performer when held, with an odd center of balance.
The other quirk is that this is not a balanced, mirrored design, with it not spinning well and being noisy on a flat surface when placed on one side, and spinning well and not being noisy when placed on a flat surface on its other side.
Given its low price and radical styling, if you keep in mind its quirks, the LuckyBaby Fidget Spinner still rates as a fun recommendation.
– Good performance when placed on a flat surface (from one side)
– Interesting styling
– Unusual single plane design
– Low price
– Nice storage case
– Unbalanced when held
– Only spins well on one side
Although it has its fair share of quirks, this spinner still delivers fun thanks to its unusual styling and low price.
Thanks to LuckyBaby for the discounted review unit.
