How many of you have try to solve the puzzle of the Rubix's Cube or the Magic Cube? How fast can you solve this toy puzzle? It was back in the '80's that I first seen this Rubik's Cube. It was so very popular back then and you can see almost everyone everywhere playing Rubik's Cube. Do you still recall the first time you've seen the Rubik's Cube? Do you still recall the first time that you ever try to solve the puzzle of the Rubik's Cube? Do you still recall the feeling of having solve the Rubik's Cube puzzle for the first time? Thank you professor Erno Rubik for inventing this Magic Cube!

Yup, agreed, one of the original fidget spinners. However, with the cheap ones, I used to take stickers off.

the Rubix cube i think is a toy therapy because it makes the person playing that, concentrate more on his skills to achieve the goal of putting one color in one side of the cube. the fidget spinner, i believe also, is a way to relieve anxiety and should not be used as a toy for the 'normal people'.

@ridingbet What a distinction you've made between Rubik's Cube and Fidget Spinner.
