There are a lot of fads that come and go with consumer products, especially those fidget spinners that were built en masse during 2016, 2017, and 2018. By the end of their popularity, I saw them filling the bins of clearance sections of every single store that carried them in the first place. I bought one once with the genuine hope that it would be fun to play with when I’m watching TV, but it ended up being a nuisance to use. It wasn’t fun and the bearings on the spinner mechanism became locked after a few uses. Mine ended up in the garbage within a month, and it made me wonder about those people I read about in the news who claimed they purchased thousands of dollars worth of those fidget spinners with the hope to resell them for a profit. The fad wore itself out before it even got a chance to get going in the first place. After the fidget spinner debacle, I’m surprised to see all of the silicone “pop-it” toys that are like reusable bubble wrap that you can “pop” with your hands, over and over until you get bored with the toy altogether. I’m sure they’re great for little kids and perhaps animals like raccoons or otters, but that’s about as far as I see these new toys going. The CBD world sees its own share of fads, but some of them seem to be sticking. I was surprised when a large company spent millions mass marketing a new CBD drink that I was convinced would fail. They managed to make it taste better than the initial version and the CBD drink exploded in popularity. They started adding hemp derived terpenes in with the CBD, making it a broad spectrum CBD product with more than just pure CBD inside.
