[Dollarama] [Dollarama] Fidget Cube $2.00

Price:
2.00
Retailer:
Dollarama
More offers from Dollarama
Had randomly found myself at a dollarama today and happen to find they are now selling fidget cubes.

Was a largely funded kickstarter (https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/an ... l-desk-toy) made millions as well as a bunch of china knockoffs.
Obviously quality differs with the original but for what it does, the price makes more sense.

Colors are not labeled on the boxes but from what i saw they were.
black-black, black-green, black-red, grey-black, whitish-black, whitish-blue

Judging from that micro usb cable below it, it's not the super tiny one.

Do you mean this large?

FYI, these are "imitation" fidget cubes. The original is called Zuru Fidget Cubes by Antsy Labs. You can get them at TRU or Walmart. The packaging looks like this:

I have both the imitation one (same box as dollarama) and the Antsy Labs version. I can vouch for the quality of the Antsy Labs version as you definitely get what you pay for. As for the $2 one, it's a bit disappointing and unfulfilling to try to fidget with the cube and it doesn't really work how it's supposed to... The size is about an inch cubed with buttons/joystick/bearing sticking out of it. Here's a video

Didn't have a ruler on me but here's a putty knife I used to scrap 3d prints off a build plate.
Says 1.5inches or 3.81cm as a comparison.
So the cubes the large one that's 3.3cm*3.3cm and not the 2.2cm*2.2cm.

I thought it was for stress relief or minor mental issues. ADHD, etc.
Not only did we embarrass Marky Mark, we let down the Funky Bunch.

I bought one like this at Factory Direct for my son and it broke apart so easily. I probably had the cheap knockoff but it looked like that one.

How noisy is this version? A quiet fidget device is a great sub for AD tapping, pen clicking etc

The 5 buttons all make a click sound, three 3spinning gears, and switch have a sound when they are moved, everything else is pretty much silent.

I dare say pretty much everything half decent on Dollarama is YMMY.

I wonder if distribution isn't same for all stores or if this things get sold out quickly. I even heard/read fairly often that some items, Dollarama staff won't even put on shelves and buy themselves.
