I tend to fidget a lot too. I've looked at the tops but want something that stays in my hand. I really like the look of spinners but they are super hard to find.

Search on google. "Spinner edc"

Here is my suggestion, however, you might not want to do it around other people...

Get a padlock and lock-picking tools. Seriously. Just like EDC - lock-picking is a legitimate hobby - as long as you are doing it ONLY for your own benefit and not at the expense of others.

It really trains your senses (touch, hearing, patience) and skill if you practise enough. And, if you are ever locked out of your own house, car, etc. it comes in handy and saves you the cost of a locksmith.

Do a Google search and, as I mentioned, you will find websites devoted to learning this skill, just like any other.

I got myself a lockpick set and practice lock not too long ago to work on this very skill!

I would definetly recommend a small fidget spinner. Stay away from big ones - their are more for show-off then for actuall fidgeting. Its like a flipper - the best ones are not the moster types. In a very humble way I would suggest this one. I'm the person behind it.

Fidget toys are probably one of my favourite things at the moment, I have a few different things on my desk at work to keep my idle hands busy and to stop fiddling with pens or whatever else I can get my hands on. They're also claimed to be good to help with anxiety, autism and ADHD.

I have a ton of options for hand-candy. I tried those spinner things, but they are not for me. As for the fidgit cubes.... I would prefer a square of bubble wrap.

 

My main 'always with me' is a spinner ring. I have over a dozen of these after a KS - www.critsuccess.com

 

Outside of this, I usually have a yoyo to hand, although thats not really for 'sitting at the desk at the office'. I am building a Begleri, after a thread here piqued my interest. I also usually have things like a rubiks cube or even a little toy on my desk to mess with. I also have some Chinese balls and a selection of large ballbearings and marbles to fiddle with, stashed in various drawers.

 

As for EDC specific items - the spinner rings are an every day addition. The Begleri will be.

Long-time reader but first-time poster here. Also a huge fidget fan who has tried several different things from cubes, spinners, coins and bits of fluff (it's a long story) but my favourite has to be the Thinket.

Well made and great fun, I'd thoroughly recommend them.

..A power ball is a fun one that also gives you a workout..

..Silly putty.. 

..The think it figet

..silver Coins.. worrycoins or any smooth thing..

..Fobs and beads on any pocket gadget.

...ball bearings.. but now thats an obvious one.. 

..The orbiter figet

I fidget with my brain. Can't stop thinking. I can sit still no problem but my brain needs to be occupied.

Here there a ton of great ideas. I love my bike chain key ring fidget. Very small and inexpensive but addicting to play with and an EDC for me.

I recently barged into the article in that much useful information about bearing that can be used and how to use them. All most necessary for such as I, who collects toys.

The Antsy Labs Fidget Cube was made for you.

 

It was a major campaign on Kickstarter and now it is available for $10 bucks at any Walmart or Toys 'R Us.

 

You can find knockoffs for less, but the parts won't move around as smoothly.

 

You can even get superhero themes like Batman and Wonder Woman.
