It was only a few months ago that fidget spinners were all the rage. It seemed like everyone, kids and adults too, had one or knew someone who had one. However, like most fads, we have moved on and the device that does nothing but spin is no longer the hottest thing.

That doesn’t seem to bother this 85-year-old grandma.

Joan was extremely excited to receive a fidget spinner for her 85th birthday.

Fiona Szilagyi of Calgary, Canada, shared a few photos on Twitter of her grandma’s birthday. The joy on her face when she opened one of her gifts was priceless.

Fiona shared that her mother, Maria Szilagyi, spotted a fidget spinner while she was shopping for gifts for her mother, Joan Szilagyi. Maria bought the spinner as a “funny gift.”

The fidget spinner was a big hit.

Although Joan was slightly confused by the toy at first, Fiona said her grandma thought it was “cute,” once she figured out its purpose she was filled with pure joy.

It took a second to figure the fidget spinner out.

She’s not the only one confused by the toy.

Fiona told BuzzFeed she wasn’t actually sure how often her grandmother would be using her new fidget spinner, but even if she never picked it up again seeing her reaction was priceless.
