Proof of the Commodification of Fidget Spinners

Spotted today at a roadside stall here in New Delhi.

Yes, this bag of snacks comes with a free fidget spinner.

This raises a few questions.

First, how inexpensive must these toys be that they’re included with such low cost items?

Second, how many consumers do you think will unwittingly munch on the toys?
