This Duo Designed a Toy to Satisfy All Your Fidgeting Urges




Are you a fidgeter?


Whenever you’re nervous during, say, a first date, an interview, or just about any social interaction, do you tend to fidget? Perhaps even if you’re not nervous, you prefer to tinker with something to be able to focus better? Maybe you’re just bored and looking for something to do to keep you awake? Does this lead you to play with your hair or twiddle your thumbs or tap on your desk? If you do, then you’ll love this nifty little cube!

Meet the Fidget Cube!


The Fidget cube is a little desk toy for anyone who likes to fidget. It’s the perfect little device for people who like to get their hands on anything to tinker with. It’s designed to satisfy the urge to spin, roll, click, or tap objects around you.

Creators Matthew and Mark McLachlan theorize that fidgeting might be a coping mechanism that allows people to stay focused, which is precisely why they conceptualized the Fidget Cube over the course of 4 years.

In the creation of this revolutionary cube, the creators wanted to make sure of two things. One, the functionality of the cube needed to really satisfy a person’s need to fidget. The cube had to be small and compact, while still being filled with fidgeting options. And two, they wanted to create a discreet toy that could be used in any situation.

The cube has 6 sides with their own unique functions.

Of course, you’re wondering about the different fidgeting needs this desk toy provides. As with any cube, the Fidget Cube has 6 sides, each with their own functions:

One side has 5 clickable buttons, three of which are audible, and two of which are silent.

The next side has a flat joystick that smoothly glides across the surface.

Next is the flip, which has a switch you can rock back and forth.

The opposite side is the “Breathe” side, which is modeled to relieve anxiety.

Then there’s the side with the tactile gears (like a combination lock) and a clickable ball and socket for both quiet and loud fidgeting.

And lastly, there’s the rotating dial.

Pretty neat, huh?
