Something that is tried and true is the opposite of a fad.

Phr. tried and true, proved reliable by experience. (OED).

e.g.

1979 Tucson (Arizona) Mag. Apr. 47/1 A beautifully made ‘period’ movie, written and directed by tried-and-true Michael Crichton.

Also, if something is going to be around for awhile it has staying power.

staying power n. in a race or other contest (hence also gen.), power to ‘stay’ or continue in action for a long time; power of persistent effort. (OED).

e.g. 1880 G. Duff in 19th Cent. No. 38. 661 The Greek is no doubt the higher civilisation, but the Bulgarian has more ‘staying power.’

Is the fidget spinner just a fad or does it have staying power? Time will tell if it becomes ranked among the tried and true products of our day.
