Tourettes, Fidget Spinners, and Fidget Cubes…Do They Really Work?
I’ve been wanting to review the fidget spinner and fidget cube for a while now. Here’s my take on how these tools might hinder or help adults and children who need help sitting still.
Here are the links referenced in the video:
Time.com – The history of the fidget cube (The claims made on this site are not agreed upon by all sources. Take this Bloomberg article, for example)
Kickstarter for the Fidget Cube – This is probably better quality than the sample cube I picked up for the purpose of this vide, but I can’t say for sure because I don’t have one.
