Even Kim K Has A Spinner

Kim K' Fidget Spinner
Just when everyone thought she had enough product endorsements already, Kim Kardashian released her own fidget spinner.

The reality star and business mogul immediately jumped on her chance with all the recent hype of the toy. This isn’t just any normal fidget spinner, however. It looks even better.

Kim K released a whole slew of items that are available this Father's Day. Similarly, she went with a whole new "Daddy" theme in her shop. Baseball caps, a keychain with a photo of herself as a child, iPhone cases, crop tanks, and socks are all new additions.

While Kim's fidget spinner cost may be a little higher than most spinners, the glitz and glamour are where it's at. The "Daddy Money Fidget Spinner" can be purchased for US$ 15 plus US$ 4 in shipping.

Although fidget spinners are everywhere this year, they were actually invented back in the 1980s.

Catherine Hettinger created them as a toy to distract and soothe young children. Because her patent expired in 2005, Hettinger isn’t profiting off of fidget spinners' new popularity, but she says she's fine with that.

"Maybe if it was some kind of exploitative product — like a new style of cigarettes — and my only motivation was to make money, I’d have a different attitude," Hettinger told Time. "But I am just thrilled."
