What Are Wind Spinners & Where to Use Them

If you are unsure what wind spinners are this information will be useful to you.  Wind spinners have come a long way since their origin starting from the wind mill.  They may be called many different names including: eye-catcher, pinwheel, whirligig, spinner, twirler & twister.  Some people think of wind spinners as a child’s toy made of a wheel of paper or plastic curls attached at its axle to a stick by a pin, which is designed to spin when blown upon by a person or the wind.  The wind spinners I will be discussing here are made of stainless steel and have many perks to its existence.
