The fidget cube is perhaps what most people think of when they think of fidget toys or autism toys, and this is by far the most popular fidget toy in the world, and is not available to buy in the shops. Also sometimes referred to as a stress cube or clicker cube, the fidget cube is a small six-sided cube with a different surface on each side, to provide a range of different tactile responses when handled.
The fidget cube is approximately 3.3cm across on each side, which makes it the perfect size to conceal in the palm of your hand. Use your fidget cube while giving a presentation or lecture to help to maintain focus and ease stress and your audience will never even know!
PEach side offers a different fidget mechanism and tactile response, to ensure that you never get bored and always have something to do with your hands!
The six sides of the fidget cube consist of the following mechanisms:
- Gamers’ thumbstick
A mini joystick or thumbstick that you can direct and click on to keep your mind sharp!
- Click a switch!
On…Off…On…Off… The simple repetitive action of clicking a switch can be very calming and help with focus.
- Press the buttons
An array of five mini buttons, each of which provides a satisfying resistance and clicking sound to soothe the mind and ease stress.
- Slider ball and winding gears
A smooth, tactile slider ball with a full 360 degrees of rotation provides a calming, soothing effect that can help to east anxiety and improve focus. Plus, the small three-gear array beneath the slider ball can be endlessly rotated simultaneously!
- Spin and swivel
A flat mobile disc with a full 360 degree rotational circle is like holding a miniature record turntable in the palm of your hand.
- Tactical feedback
Finally, this side of the cube has the same type of calming and soothing effect as light meditation, providing a smooth indent that is just the right size and shape for the tip of a finger to rub, providing tactical feedback and an almost hypnotic calming effect, which is highly conducive to concentration.
