When we were kids, we didn't have all these fidget spinners to flip around in our hands, but that doesn't mean that we didn't have something to play with! We had to keep our hands busy somehow and our ways were obviously the best.
We had a bunch of different things to play with, each of them just as ridiculous as the ones they make now! I mean, some of these didn't even really do anything but we still collected them like crazy! How many do you remember?
1. Crazy Bones
These were essentially just plastic little figures that you would collect I guess? They were based on an ancient Greek game called Knucklebones (because they used sheep's knuckles) which was kind of similar to Jacks. Most of us didn't really play the game with them but for some reason we all collected them.
A lot like the Crazy Bones, these were just little pieces of cardboard cut into circles. You would have "battles" and hopefully get more.
3. Tech Deck Finger Skateboards
Well what's cooler than skateboarding? How about skateboarding with your fingers! So cool, so fun, so thrilling.
4. Cootie Catchers
I mean, we had to make the stuff we wanted to fidget with so obviously it was better right? A piece of paper telling you your fortune is bound to be accurate.
We each had a special little pet who would need to be fed and played with all in a little egg shaped device. I think pretty much every teacher hated them because we would all have them in class and never pay attention.
6. Slap Bracelets
Kids love these but really the noise is pretty irritating. Hearing them slap over and over again isn't the most fun, but we all did it!
7. Bead Lizards
We all worked so hard to make these and what did we do when we were done? Stick them to our backpacks of course!
