      What color schemes are planned? If doable please make them out of stainless steel! I can't wait to get mine either way. These. Are. A. Blessing.

      +1 for adding a keychain or similar long lasting attachment option. I don't love pull cords, they tend to wear out and break, but a way to attach it to keys or a backpack seems like a great idea, especially as a lot of these are going to end in the hands of kids.

      I think that there is another option with a gray body and black components, and that there will be another choice that is still to be determined.

      I can't wait to get mine and one for my teacher! This is going to be so awesome to have and will help me in school. BUT I was wondering where we can see all of the color choices? Or will we have to wait to see them when it ends and we pick them out?

      I've desperately needed a fidget toy that I can keep in my pocket and have handy at my retail job. This looks absolutely perfect for my needs to help keep me grounded and release nervous energy. Being ASD in a public-facing job is difficult and I think this is going to make it a whole lot easier for me.

    13. Jim Lewallen on

      Should you be looking for a stretch goal, a quiet version of the fidget cube would be great. A little nervous about how my team will react to lots of clicky noises.

      I ordered this to help my 6 year old with his problems. He was abused by his father. He has a stress ball but I believe the fidget will help him much more!! Thank you!!!

      Glad to say this is my first Kickstarter pledge. This is going to keep me sane at work. Thank you and congrats!

      I feel honored that I got to see the count roll over to $1M right after I pledged! How exciting! Also, giving my two-cents for a couple of the suggestions I've seen:

      - I would also like a keychain-esque attachment, but really like the pull-cord idea! Both because of the fidget-potential and because it's silent. I'm sensitive to sound, so jingling keyrings are not terribly pleasant for me.

      - Being sensitive to sound, I am all for silent or soft/dulled clicks and such on the fidget cubes, as opposed to pen-click sounds, or anything that might annoy the people around me. Having an option for a quiet and/or silent model would be fantastic!

    17. Bridgitte Colwell on

      I don't know how possible this is, but I'd love to see a keychain addition attached to the cube, maybe with one of those spring loaded string things on it. I don't like losing things I come to rely on for my fidgets, and the pull cord things (the ones you use for a key card that have a name that escapes me) are super useful, both as a fidget and as loss prevention. Thanks guys, and keep up the great work!

    18. Libby on

      Or maybe an easy off lanyard? I feel like if it were just by itself I could also easily lose it?

    19. Libby on

      Would it be possible to add an easy off keychain feature?

      So exciting! I was going to pledge for 2, one for my son on the Autism spectrum, one for his special services teacher at school. Upon reflection, I decided to pledge for 5 so that I can keep 2 at home (1 for my son & 1 for me! As a former nail biter, I think this will be fantastic to keep my hands busy while reading!) and give 3 to the school for the teacher to have in her classroom. Hoping they will meet the goal of Dec shipping, but excited for whenever they are available. This is my first Kickstarter pledge & I'm excited to be part of it. I know this will be a huge help for fidgeters everywhere!

      I own Piecing the Puzzle, Inc in Middleboro, MA. We work with children that have Autism and other special needs. I always recommend fidgets toys for our kiddos!! These look awesome and I can't wait until they get delivered so I can see how our kids react to them!!!

      My son has ADHD and likes to shuffle cards or use therapy putty (which makes a mess if he doesn't put it back in its container). I can't wait to give him one of these. Congratulations on such a great idea!

      Just wanted to say how excited I am about this. I have an autistic son whom needs to fidget in school to keep focused. He uses a smoothing stone often. When I showed him your video he was jumping for joy (literally). Cannot wait for him to get his hands on this! Thank you to you and your team.

      I posted about it on the Facebook page for my autism blog. It got shared quite a bit. Y'all are making a lot of autistic people - like me - very excited to have a new fidget toy with so many options! Thank you :)

      Since I pledged around 1AM this morning it has increased by $740,000. That is amazing.

      I am so excited to get my Fidget Cube! Really hoping everything works out and the before-Christmas goal can be achieved! Then I will at least have it for Term 2 this year.

      I pledged because I see SO much potential in this for a Therapeutic tool for kids with sensory deficits!! This will help them concentrate in So many ways, to include improve their ability to pay attention in school & make better scores! As a pediatric therapist, I Love this!!!
