People Are Freaking Out Over These $5 Toys Because They're Super Relaxing

It's official: Pokemon Go is out, fidget spinners and cubes are in.    

A new class of toy is sweeping the country this season and unlike Tickle Me Elmo, adults are loving this plaything just as much as kids. That’s right, there’s a toy out there that both dad and daughter are going to be obsessed with. Fidget spinners and cubes are the latest playground craze, and despite their simple appearance—a three-pronged spinner or a tiny noded cube—they are addictive in both their simplicity and their ability to de-stress.

Originally designed as calming tools for kids with ADHD, users across the globe have discovered that both species of the fidget toy have a soothing effect—whether you’re a middle schooler who has trouble focusing in class, a college kid in the midst of finals or a sales guy with a huge presentation on Monday. How do we know fidget toys are becoming a phenomenon? Social media, of course. The hashtag #fidgetspinner has more than 120,00 posts attached to it on Instagram, while #fidgetcube has more than 43,000.
