If you can’t seem to keep yourself still and need something, anything, to occupy your hands, the sudden explosion of fidget toys is just what you need. While they make somewhat dubious claims about their therapeutic benefits, there’s no denying the satisfaction of spinning a tiny toy, or clicking and fussing with switches and buttons, while you’re otherwise idle. It just feels right. Below we’ve compiled a list of the best fidget spinners and best fidget cubes you can buy right now. And if you aren’t interested in dropping $20 or more on a simple fidget toy, we’ve also included a few ultra-cheap fidget spinners and cheap fidget cubes that will still get the job done (and likely make a little but more noise while doing it).
Here are 10 fidget toys to help keep your mind on track.
KCHKUI Fidget Cube
This little KCHKUI fidget cube fits in your hand and offers the tactile feedback your hands are after. It comes with a 2-year guarantee, which is pretty excellent given its price tag. On top of that, there are tons of colors and designs to choose from.
Linne Fidget Spinner
This Linne Fidget spinner promises long spins and quality bearings. It also looks a whole heck of a lot like an owl’s crest and definitely not anything else. On top of that, it’s the cheapest toy of the bunch, at less than $3, so if you want to find out if a fidget spinner is something you’re into, it’s pretty much perfect.
Here’s another low-cost spinner if you’re looking to dip your toes in the world of fidget toys. The Amilife EDC fidget spinner is under $9 and promises low-noise, high-quality bearings with long spin times. No muss, no fuss.
This retro silver spinner from Jarvinia claims two and half to three minutes of spin time off a single flick of the toy. It has a cool medieval looking shield on its wings, to help you feel like an ancient warrior whose mind tends to wander.
Classic Red Spinner
The tri-tip spinner design is one of the more common takes on the fidget spinner concept, and the Red Classic from The Sharon’s has all-ceramic bearings, something the manufacturer claims gives it between two and five minutes of blissful spinning action.
The Bokate Crusader has the same shield design as the one by Jarvinia, but it’s in a cool, brushed metal exterior. There are two finishes to choose from, too: the coppery one shown in the image, and a silvery one.
12-Sided Fidget Die
This 12-sided contraption from Fidget Dice has switches, sliders, squeezable rubber protrusions, a knobby thumb-massaging side, and more. There are 12 sides to this fidget device, make it multidimensional. And it’s fairly cheap, too, coming in at just under $15.
Colovis Fidget Cube 2-pack
You’ve probably got two hands, so why not just get two fidget cubes? If you’re feeling generous, you could give one away, or maybe keep one at work and one at home. We’re not trying to tell you how to live your life, what you decide to do with this set of fidget cubes is entirely up to you.
Infinity Spinner Pro
The Infinity Spinner Pro is basically the high-performance sports car of fidget spinners. It’s pricier than the others, but you can get it in gold or copper finish in addition to the carbon finish in the photo. The maker promises over 5 minutes of spin, and it even includes a tricks guide.
Kozodo Co. X6
This is the top rated spinner on Amazon right now, with over 400 reviews and 4.8 stars out of 5. At 65mm, it’s slightly smaller than most other tri-wing spinners, which tend to measure 75mm. It’s also injection molded rather than 3D printed, giving it an extra layer of durability.
