Thanks to the popularity of fidget spinners, more and more people are realising the benefits of fidget toys in alleviate the symptoms of ADHD, Autism and other sensory conditions.
Fidget toys are designed to help toddlers and children who experience sensory overload, restlessness and hyper activity by providing them with just the right amount of sensory stimulation to regulate their neural system.
How to choose the right fidget toys for toddlers and children
Fidget toys come in many varieties and are designed to provide stimulation for a particular area of the sensory system. They can require physical manipulation to click or spin like a fidget cube, or they may be squishy and squeezable like putty. If your child or toddler likes to chew, we also have a great range of chewable necklaces and toys that can keep that part of their brain occupied and make it easier to concentrate.
The best way to find out which kind of fidget toy is right for your toddler, child or teenager is to watch how they interact, and what they tend to reach for when feeling distressed.
Most of our fidget toys are designed to be comfortably held in one hand. We have many options that are small and quiet enough for your children to take into the classroom, to a therapy appointment, or for long car rides. By having something to occupy a part of their brain, toddlers and children with ADHD and ASD find it easier to focus their attention, improve their fine motor skills and regulate their emotions.
