Fidget cube: review

Today I wanted to review the Fidget cube. Some of you might have already heard about the Fidget cube because it was one of the most funded Kickstarter projects last year. The fidget cube is basically a cube with six surfaces that have a different function and a different way that you can fiddle with. Ideal for people who have a lot of stress or people who just have too much energy.

In terms of sizing this cube is quite small I believe it’s around 3 cm x 3 cm. It doesn’t take a lot of place at all which is ideal because you can take this thing everywhere you go.
It also comes in eight different colors. So there’s something for everyone.

Since two of the five click buttons are silenced there’s no need to worry about annoying the people around you. Some buttons however do make a lot of noise f.e. the tactile gears so I’d advise not using those during classes.

At first my only struggle with this was the price. A Fidget cube costs 22$ at the moment. That’s a lot of money to spend on something that is so small -especially if you’re a student- but I can guarantee that it’s worth it. I’ve seen some dupes where the buttons don’t make the click noise at all, sometimes the tactile gear blocks, the clickable ball does’t click, the glide surface is very crooked. I figured that it would be best to buy a decent cube instead of getting a non-functioning dupe.

As you might already now I really liked this cube. It comes in eight different colors and it’s practical. In my opinion this is a very clever and practical invention! If you liked the Fidget cube and you want to check it out you can find these on the original site which is at Antsy Lab. Let me know in the comment section if you liked the Fidget cube!

UPDATE: I just found this amazing video on Youtube and I needed to share it here! You can make your own Fidget cube with this tutorial I’m amazed! (Click here)

Lots of love!

  1. OMG! I wish someone wold have come up with this idea when I was working. I don’t fidget, I doodle. I can’t concentrate if I am not doodling. And it would routinely get me in trouble (God forbid adults not be treated like children). I may still get one just for the heck of it!
