15 Most Unique Fidget Toys On Etsy
As internet communities like Tumblr, Twitter, and Facebook change and evolve, sometimes leaving their original users behind, one has stayed true to their roots: Etsy.
Though it's now a publicly traded company, the company that’s synonymous with handcrafted, curated goods continues to make space for interesting, creative products - and their creators.
One space that we’ve been excited to see grow on Etsy? Fidget toys.
As big proponents of the occasional fidget (you may have seen the original Fidget Cube at one point!), we recognize the craft that goes into a great fidget toy.
A great fidget toy is equal parts simple to use and delightfully repetitive. An added bonus? Having some elements of mastery (or what the kids might call “tricks”!). Made from a number of materials, from 3D-printed plastics to hand-carved wood, fidget toys are designed to be gratifying to the touch.
While these may be the common threads that tie fidget toys together, these are just a foundation, a baseline for creative tinkerers to use as they come up with their own ideas.
It’s in celebration of these inventive individuals that today we share 15 of the most unique fidget toys on Etsy right now.

Designed in an attractive pink shade with a number of available styles, include cubes, lines, and other handheld objects, you’re sure to find one that fits your space (just be mindful that it is *very* audible).
