Latest craze Fidget Cubes and Spinners and where to find stock - Prices from £1.36 delivered

133
Found 29th Apr 2017
Are the kids pestering for the new craze toy fidget cubes and spinners? It seems to be all I have heard of this past week. Loads of places have sold out or people are putting them in auctions at stupid prices on eBay to take advantage of desperate parents (Like Hatchimals all over again!) Lots of places don't even stock them yet and those that do are out of stock for delivery and its collection only so I have put together a list of where the stock is at the time of posting if you want to see what all the hype is about. They were originally designed to be stress relivers and help children with ADHD and Autism to focus for longer. Lots of schools are banning them as they are becoming too much of a distraction in class but used at home or in the right environment, they can be helpful.

Ali Express have both the spinner and cube type in all different colours, shapes, sizes and designs starting from £1.36 each for spinner type but price breaks if you buy in quantites so might be worth looking at that. They even have Batman style ones!

​And you can say that they dont because of precisely what? The best people to judge whether something affects a childs learning is the person providing the learning, not the person who couldn't tell 'Darling Jack and Angel Jill' that as the doctor has not diagnosed them with any learning condition that they wont actually help them in the classroom. Or even as the parent of a child with ADHD/Autism that there are actually no scientific studies on whether these do work as a learning aid, so if the teacher says to put it away, then put it away.

Amazon? Only need to check on there and there is hundreds of listings so no problem get it, some next day delivery.

Should I start a thread telling everyone the cheapest place to buy sugar? Thanks for the effort though

​Ok I'll pitch in.....I work part time as a teaching assistant. I was trying to help a boy do his maths but he had a spinner. Did he do any work that lesson? No of course not. He played with his spinner. I noticed the other easily distracted children watching spinner boy and not focusing on their work too. These thing are no good in a typical classroom setting. They make a horrible whizz sound and distract the other kids who then start to moan that they want one too.

Should point out, although AliExpress list prices in pounds, they charge in US dollars, so you may be charged an exchange fee by your card issuer.

If you're getting a spinner make sure it's one with a ceramic centre bearing particularly, if it's one of the cheapies, spin so much better. If it has a ceramic bearing the listing will say as the sellers know this, if it doesn't it'll be a tight steel one which aren't much fun.

Delivery between 30 to 50 days. The craze will disappear by then. cold.

What do you mean any more? There haven't been any yet, saying anything of the sort. Maybe these fictional teachers are on to something?

Not correct - on the website set your currency as "£ GBP" (top right-ish of screen) and you'll pay in pounds, no exchange fees. I learnt the hard way, forgot to change this and let my card provider handle the conversion, much to their advantage. No idea how this is done on the app version, must be easy enough with a little looking I'm sure.
I give the kids an old cpu fan with iFan written on in tippex, not one of these new fangled gadgets
Just ordered for granddaughter she couldn't get any in the shops in Edinburgh
stupid
The Works have these for £3 - £4 now too. I went to my local market and a toy stand was selling them for £3 each. Variety of colours, clearly just ordered from AliExpress, but I grabbed one!
Unless you have an ASD/ADHD diagnosis for your child you are a bloody idiot if you buy one of these for your child and let them take it school. Classrooms have been plagued with these being a distraction to the child with them AND to the rest of the class. These type of things may be of benefit to a very small number of children but this band wagon jumping is pathetic.

Yes, distracting to the child using them and the whole class. (Unless a specific diagnosis recommends them, but this is a very very small number)

​ You make it sound so simple lol Some children are very difficult and you can't just take things from their hands without it turning into a fight. Besides, we had already had swearing and books thrown at the teacher in that particular lesson, we didn't need anymore drama.

every time I saw kids playing with these on the bus I automatically assume they have some sorts of disabilities. I may sound cynical but I'm pretty sure many will agree with that.

Unlike x number of others, I read the other thread and get your point entirely.
I have thrown away about 50 of these this week that I have confiscated from kids.

Nice one oliverreed! Light the blue touch-paper and retire to a safe distance...
Kids are bound to take these to school...it's the latest craze, but if they're playing with them in a lesson and causing a distraction then obviously the teacher has to intervene and confiscate. Having said that, I'm getting one with LEDs so I can be the envy of my colleagues at work innit.

If you took one off my kids and binned it id be down the school and you would be replacing it. I remember my days in school and if you had something took off you you collected it at the end of the lesson or the end of the day the teachers would of never put a childs property in the bin, do you also bin mobile phones and hand held consoles? No matter what you think of the toy someone paid for that toy and money doesn't come for free.

Your closing statement says it all really and only reinforces my original point
We had distractions like this when I was at school. It was called looking at the bra-strap outline through the green school jumper of the girl in front of you... or sadly the same for the boys sitting behind me because of my large frame and hormone problems.

Didn't stop them twanging it with a ruler, though. Perverts.

​Education doesn't come for free either. Someone will have paid for it. It might get the message across not to play around rather than pay attention. Not really fair comparing a mobile phone that costs significantly more and has a legitimate role to play to a pointless toy that cost a few pence to make.
