Move Over, Glitter Boobs: Fidgetiddies Are Comin' Through
For the past few months, the entire world has been obsessed with fidget spinners. They are literally EVERYWHERE, so it doesn't (but totally does) surprise us that someone has come up with the latest - and possibly greatest - crazy boob invention: Fidgetiddies.
Whilst many festivalgoers are embracing the latest 'glitter boob' (a.k.a 'disco tits') trend, 22 year-old Manuela Torres-Orejuela has other ideas. The UCLA graduate suffers from ADHD and anxiety, and found the trending gadget fidget spinners to help deal with her conditions. Having decorated her graduation cap with them, what else was there to do but to velcro them to some nipple covers?
So how does one acquire a pair of Fidgetiddies?, I hear you ask. Apparently Manuela has been ordering extra bits and pieces in order to make some herself - hey girl boss! - but she does share her invention with the world via a step-by-step tutorial on her Twitter.
Maybe not the most practical thing ever, but it's fun as hell and within hours of uploading her video to Twitter, she'd had over 20,000 and 8,000 retweets. Once you've won the Internet over, you're pretty much unstoppable. As for the future of Fidgetiddies, Manuela has some ideas to take them up a notch and make them more functional for the mainstream.
Talking to Glamour, Manuela said: 'I would love to see breastfeeding mothers wearing them so their babies can play and chew on them. I would love to see them worn at feminist protests, marches and movements. I would even love to see them at strip clubs and drag shows and worn on men! The beautiful thing is anyone could use them.'
Despite Fidgetiddies going viral, Manuela admitted that it all started out as a bit of fun. 'Since I am a gender studies major and a vocal body positive feminist on my social media, it came naturally to me to put them on my breasts as an ironic and playful way to subvert patriarchy.'
