The art of fidgeting is reaching new heights with flip sequins. To encourage reflection and interaction, the new Hudson Yards in New York features a wall of reversible sequins where you can write and draw with your fingers. Children and adults put their mark on the glimmering panels, “I WAS HERE” by artist Lara Schnitger. But you don’t have to leave home to fidget with flip sequins. For soothing tactile and sensory input, try three fidgets with reversible sequins from Fun and Function.
