New York Magazine: The Strategist Blog – Best $25 Stocking Stuffer
My hands get restless. They’re not just your average fiddlers, either. They act independently from my brain — tiny, incorrigible beasts that cause actual, real-life damage: pick scabs until they bleed, unravel the sleeves of expensive sweaters. There is a whole market of products targeting people like me and hands like mine: Kinetic Sand; squishy, slow-rising toys shaped like cupcakes and croissants; and Rubik’s Cubes, all meant for the restless desk-ridden. But my hands aren’t just fitful — they’re picky, too. The puzzle required too much concentration, the sand quickly lost its stickiness, the squishy toys are somewhat monotonous (and left my hands smelling of imitation vanilla). See Speks featured here.
