I've found Acey's fidget cube a couple of times and goofed around with it. Somehow it was less satisfying than I felt like these things were attempting to sell, unfortunately. :\

They aren't for everyone. For example, the cheap one I bought is fun to fumble with, but I still seem to prefer the plastic forks I have on my desk for 'fidgeting' purposes.

I do not fidget with anything. I do not know why considering how twitchy I am and how much I hate sitting still.

I find the fidget cube and the fidget spinner to be very different to fidget with, too. Like, one is… more active? I guess?

I read somewhere that this is not exactly a new phenomenon, and it's silly we're carrying on about this new "fad" like it's the end of the world or something. There's those balls you play with (stress balls, but also Baoding balls), and worry beads (kompoloi), and I'm sure everyone knows someone who spins pens (or clicks them). These will just be new tools for idle hands.
Still something.

I've seen a few of those around here in Finland too, kids and shops advertising em. I tried a superheavy one and really liked how it feels / spins forever. I haven't bought one though, I'm not really fidget-y person.

My wife got me a cheap one from Michael's when she was picking up paints. I wanted one because I have a tiny restless leg issue. They're addicting, but I think the health benefits that have hyped fidget spinners up are mostly placebo. I could be wrong, because it does help with my anxiety issues.

It's just a toy that stimulates pleasure centers in the brain releasing serotonin, et al.

I would buy one but only if it cost less than a beer...
