What is a fidget?

From English, meaning "to stir", "to fiddle", "to wriggle", "to have the fidgets", the fidgets are small tools aimed at children and adults hyperactive/ADHD or have attention problems and focus. They can be used at school, at home or in the workplace and help to focus attention by offering a motor outlet for tensions and movement desires. These various objects encourage manipulation: they mix, grind in all directions and provide a welfare tactile. Discreet, they slip into the bag, the case, the pocket...

Why do we all need fidgets?

 Originally, fidgets were designed to provide concentration assistance to children and adults with attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) or carriers of autistic disorders. However, these tools can be used by everyone! Indeed, simple movements such as biting your nails, turning your pen or nervously moving your leg highlight the motor need we have, to concentrate or to de-stress. These tools as a stress ball for hyperactive that encourages manipulation are then a suitable response to our movement needs.
