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.

Customers can now visit their local 7-Elevens tore to find the toy in multiple colors, glow in the dark, tie die or metallic. The toy is priced at $7.99. The gas station chain has 61,000 stores.
