My Boys’ “Fidget Spinners” Business

fidget spinners

My boys are anxiously awaiting their THIRD shipment of fidget spinner to arrive from China. What are fidget spinners, you ask?  Well, they’re great for giving anxious hands something to do and INSANELY popular right now. I’ve heard that many autistic kids use them, and adults keep these little gadgets spinning to help relieve stress and stay focused.

Well, three weeks ago, my smart, little entrepreneurs (and the neighbor kid next door) jumped on this fad and ordered 80 of these spinners to sell to their friends.

They sold these for $7 each…and completely sold out in ONE day!

That night we ordered 120 more. Those arrived one week later and they again sold out in one day.

Now, these risk-takers did some calculations and determined that if they ordered 300 more, they’d get a much lower price, resulting in greater margins and ensuring they wouldn’t run out.

It was a hard decision, but with shaky hands they clicked the “Buy Now” button and reinvested their profits.

I know we’re teaching them valuable lessons about risk and reward, and giving them a sense of work ethic. Plus, it’s so fun to watch their excitement as they learn about supply and demand, salesmanship, and capitalism.
