@thechilipepper0 there were two random versions, one with crappy, rare, an useless CR1220 cells (those spinners were unreliable) and one with much more useful and common CR2025 cells. I “lucked out” with 100% CR2025 version.
@jml326 I’ve given out fidget spinners two years in a row. First year, they were a hit and at least a couple of kids came by multiple times. Last year it was cold and rainy. I had a total of like 12 kids. I have many fidget spinners left for next year.
The batteries WILL be depleted — I bought this deal before and only 35 out of 160 fidget spinners lights worked ! I bought these and donated them to a classroom of special needs students and discovered only 35 of them lite up !
DON’T DO IT!! For the light up ones, at least. As of last halloween, only abut 1 in 4 lit up, and most of those very dimly. My kids actually did sit on the floor and do a build your own exercise to (literally) get these out the door. On the flip side, the normal ones actually work quite well. In my second year of trick or treat meh-xperminets, fidget spinners still win out 3:1 over normal candy bars, only loosing in the teenage girl category (who prefer plain hershey’s chocolate). And yes, I do have spreadsheets!
@DaveKnowsAll - So you’re saying you’re an engineer? Cause I’m an engineer and the idea of tracking trick-or-treat treat picks as a function of age and gender sounds like it would yield some very interesting data.
