This past month a number of trends have been followed and enjoyed to their fullest extent by Trailside students. The top 5 current trends are Rubik’s Cubes, Electronic Pop Sockets, Slime, Brain Games and Fidget Toys. Students can be found playing with these trends during and after school, and in some cases, teachers at Trailside are found enjoying these forms of entertainment.

The Rubik’s Cube is a 3-D puzzle that was invented in 1974.The Rubik’s Cube is extremely popular because it’s a great way to keep your restless hands busy. But many Trailside students find The Rubik’s Cube completely and utterly annoying.

“I find Rubik’s cubes annoying because their sounds are very irritating,” said Alayna Session, a student here at Trailside.

Just like the Rubik’s cube, electronic pop sockets are extremely popular. Electronic pop sockets are buttons that stick on the back of your phone that can be used when you need to grip your phone, stand your phone up, or wrap your earbuds. Trailside students use electronic pop sockets to stabilize their phones while taking a selfie for SnapChat or making a Musical.ly .

“Popsockets are actually really useful, I need one of those,” said Maggie Metro.

As for slime it is a, moist, soft, and slippery substance, typically used by Trailside students to squish or make shapes. It’s entertaining and very popular.

“Slime is popular because it is colorful and fun to play with,” said Hina Mahmood. But teachers are beginning to ban slime in multiple classrooms due to their messy distracting properties.

And then there are brain games, which are forms of entertainment that usually tests one’s thinking ability. Some examples of a popular brain game are: Monument Valley, Leo’s Fortune, Limbo, and The Cave. Trailside students find brain games exciting and educational. Many games have a setting placed in a historical event that students at Trailside are currently studying.

“My favorite brain game is Monument Valley because it plays tricks on the mind and eyes,” said Campbell Osborne.

But the trend that intrigues students the most here at Trailside is the fidget cube.

“Fidget cubes have been extremely popular and useful,” said Tina Mai, a seventh grade student here at Trailside. The fidget cube is a 6-sided fidget toy designed to help the public focus during boring or distracting situations. Fidget cubes are encouraged in most classes by multiple teachers here at Trailside. It’s not only useful, but relatively cheap as well.

While these forms of entertainment are popular now, they are likely to fade away. Trends come and go. Who knows? There may even be one that is better than the fidget cube.
