The Creator of the "Fidget Spinner" Isn't Getting Any Money For It

These toys are really cheap and the new trend but the creator isn't making a dime from it!

62-year-old Catherine Hettinger from Orlando, Florida invented the Fidget Spinner back in the '90s and got a patent in 1997.  She even pitched it to  Hasbro, but no one wanted to make them so she let the patent lapse in 2005 rather than pay the fee.  

Now EVERYONE is buying them and she's not getting a dime off of them but she said she is just happy that people are enjoying them.
