YouTube/Antsy LabsBefore fidget spinners took the world by storm, there was the Fidget Cube. The original became one of the highest grossing products on Kickstarter, raising nearly $6.5 million, and kicked off the current trend of small plastic toys designed entirely for your restless fingers to play with.
I found out about the Fidget Cube in late 2016, after the Kickstarter fundraising period was already over. I knew I would have to wait at least a month or two to receive my cube, but I didn’t want one of the knockoff versions that were flooding Amazon. I ponied up the $22 that Antsy Labs demanded on its website, and got ready for a long wait. When it finally came in late April — after months of delays — I couldn’t wait to explore the wonders that awaited me with the six unique sides of the cube.
However, I soon learned that not all sides of a fidget cube are created equal. Some facets of the fidget’s blocky physique are clearly superior to others, and after months of testing I have determined exactly which is the best of all.
Here are all six sides of the Fidget Cube, ranked from worst to best.
