Fisher made his huge fidget spinner using Celotex insulation board, bicycle wheel, Perspex, rolls of gaffer tape, long screws, and a custom made pair of compasses.
Tony Fisher, who made headlines last year when he broke the Guinness World Record for the world's largest Rubik's cube and spent two days solving the puzzle, posted a video showing his latest gigantic version of a trendy toy.
The fidget spinner is one of the most popular toys in the world today. It became popular because some claimed that it helped them reduce stress. The toy was originally marketed for people with ADHD, autism, or anxiety.
