You might think that the only fidget toys out there are fidget spinners and fidget cubes but there are many more options available and new items coming out all the time.
First of all, think about why you need or want a fidget toy. Is it to help with a specific condition such as ADHD, autism, anxiety or stress? Or is it simply because they are cool and the latest craze?
Do you want a discreet fidget toy you can slip in your pocket and use unobtrusively or do you want one that you can use to show off to your friends?
Are you interested in performing tricks with your spinner to impress them? Or would you rather no-one knew you were using a fidget toy at all?
Some people prefer the whirring motion of a spinner. Others like a cube with its multiple surfaces and fidget possibilities. Still more are soothed by the tactile experience of squeezing a ball while some people need the unique experience of a fidget ring or roller.
With fidget toys and aids so inexpensive, it’s worth trying out one or two items to find one that really works for you. You might find that having a library of fidget toys at your disposal is the best option for you as you then have a choice that can fit your particular need or mood.
Once you have a particular favorite type of toy, you can then upgrade to a premium option such as a more durable fidget spinner made of metal rather than plastic and with ceramic bearings that will last far longer, also providing you with a much longer spin time.
Many of the premium metal spinners are becoming collectible as manufacturers respond to market demand by releasing special editions and designs. It is worth trying different designs of spinners as they operate in their individual ways, with their shapes and sizes dictating how well they work for you.
If you have smaller hands, for instance, you might prefer one of the many mini spinners on the market. Or the way a spinner looks might be of most importance to you, with spinners such as those based on ancient and classical designs proving more appealing.
Whatever your preference, make sure that your fidget toy of choice fits comfortably with your lifestyle and is easily portable so you can always have it to hand. A fidget toy is a very personal item and it is worth taking the time to find the perfect one for you.
