Where I Got It
(You can find this item for cheaper on eBay and even on Amazon. I bought this particular one because I have prime right now. I can’t speak for other sellers, but my shipping experience with this seller was positive. It came in original packaging, well protected, and in good condition. I got two day shipping and had no issues with tracking.)
In the video I show each side, and how they sound when I use them. There is no talking in the video. Below I break my review down by reviewing each side separately in order of when they are shown in video. I also give each sides description exactly as written in the instructions that came with the crystal. Some of them are written kinda odd and confusing because they are translated from Chinese.
Description: “Small soft tactility that have the function of blood circulation and massage.”
Review: This side is the side I find myself using the most. I am a tactile seeker and I have issues with picking my skin when my anxiety gets bad. This side is AMAZING for both of those things. The lil nubs are pretty soft and easy to pinch, pick, and feels nice to rub my thumb on. It’s a really great tactile feel, and makes a satisfying noise when you move your finger over them lightly.
Description: “Game controller button experience, using ABS material to enhance texture.
Review: These buttons really do have the same feel as a controller. They also make a great click noise. I like clicking all the buttons at once.
Description: "Do you want to a rotating disk? You can come and try it.”
Review: This side is so nice!! In my opinion it’s way better than the one on the fidget cube. It’s textured, it clicks when you press it, very easy to turn, and is slightly raised. I like to turn it with both my fingers from the side. This is one of my favorite sides to use.
Description: “360 rotation joystick”
Review: This joystick is better than the fidget cubes as well. As you can see from the video it has WAY more range, and is actually like an Xbox controller joystick. It is very nice.
Description: “You can have experience of the ubiquitous switch rhythm.”
Review: The switch has a very satisfying feel when you press it, and it makes a nice click. I like to put my whole finger on it and click it back and forth.
Description: “People who like pressing ball pen can try it”
Review: In my opinion this is actually more satisfying than a ball point pen cause the button is silicone and feels soft and nice to push. The clicking feel and sound is exactly like a pen though.
Description: “Sliding the sliding block to adjust own life rhythm.”
Review: First of all, these all slide so smoothly and without and issues. I like the fact that the middle one is a little higher than the other two because it feels nice when I move them all up and down at the same time with my thumb. They are a really nice silent feature.
Description: “Is a face very cute, it won’t be angry no matter how much you pinch.”
Review: These little faces are made of silicone so they are nice and squishy! Very nice to pinch! Also, they are great to just run my finger over. The bigger face that has its own side sometimes makes a pretty satisfying noise when you pinch it, if you pinch it right. All the faces are hollow on the inside, making them easier to pinch.
Description: “Free shrinkage, it can be hung anywhere and not afraid of missing.”
Review: The strap is convenient for obvious reasons, but it’s also nice to fidget with because it is silicone. It is stretchy and it feels nice to roll between my fingers.
Description: “The side has three gears which can be poked and rolled, spreading voice of clear and harmony.”
Review: At first I was bummed these where so easy to turn, but after I played with it more and more I began to like it a lot. I like just running my fingers over them, and spinning them super fast.
Over all I think this thing is great! Yeah, it’s bigger than the fidget cube, but that’s because it has a lot more things to fidget with! Plus, I personally like that it’s bigger cause the fidget cube would make my hands cramp up bad if I used it for too long. Its about the size of a baseball. It’s light weight and all the sides work great and have multiple ways to fidget/stim with them. I know that whoever designed these things probably got the concept from the Antsy Lab fidget cube, but in my opinion the Holy Crystal is way better than any of the fidget cubes real or knockoff. It’s a tactile seekers dream come true! I think anyone could benefit from this toy, but especially people with autism, sensory issues, ADHD, anxiety, and skin picking. If you need to keep your hands busy, this is the toy for you!
