Fidget Cube – A Vinyl Desk Toy
Fidget Cube is essentially a toy for people who like to fidget with items.
The toy is shaped like a dice that has six sides for different fidgeting needs: Click, Glide, Flip, Roll, Rub and Spin.
It is available in multiple designs and colors.
Fidget Cube started as a Kickstarter project where it raised US$6,465,690 from 154,926 backers out of their initial goal of only US$15,000.
I pledged for two Fidget Cube at US$19 (S$28) each and two Fidget Cube Prism (Silicone Skin) at US$3.99 (S$6) each. Shipping is at a flat rate of US$19 (S$28).
In total, I paid US$64.98 (S$94) for all the items including shipping.
For the two Fidget Cube, I chose Kickstarter Green/Black and Midnight Black. For the Fidget Cube Prism (Silicone Skin), I chose Black.
Similar with most Kickstarter projects, Fidget Cube also did not ship within the stated timeframe of December 2016. Instead, it was sent to me three months later on 3rd March 2017 via DHL Global Mail, and I received it on 8th March 2017.

Fidget Cube Prism (Silicone Skin)
I am disappointed with the quality of the Fidget Cube. I was expecting it to be better. The cube doesn’t feel solid due to the fidgeting parts being loose and flimsy, especially the flip. I am not sure whether those knockoffs is of the same quality or even worst since even Antsy Labs can’t get it right.
