HOT TOYS: Fidget Spinners available at all 7-Eleven gas stations


The newest toy craze, Fidget Sprinners, are available at 7-Eleven stores nationwide.

The popular new toy is designed to calm nerves, ease anxiety and provide hours of entertainment — and they’re hard to find these days. Some schools across the country have been them due to the distraction in the classroom.
