Cole ZX and Rattla battling each other on Spinners.


To battle opponents in the Spinjitzu Spinners game.

Spinners are apparatuses that a player uses while playing Ninjago: Spinjitzu Spinners. The spinners come with three to five LEGO bricks, with the colors and designs pertaining to the traits of whichever character is included. The spinners themselves are used to represent Spinjitzu used by the Ninja.

These bricks are used to lock the spinner in place, elevate the spinner, and give protection to a character during battle. The bricks included include two 1x2 bricks, a 2x2 plate, and occasionally two snaps used for attaching weapons directly to the spinner.

All spinner sets come with some Character Cards and Battle Cards. One can spin longer if a 2x2 with a rounded bottom is put on the bottom side of the spinner, which allows total balance to the spinner. Weapons can also be added to the spinner. Spinner crowns can also be put on top of spinners.
