Why do we all need fidgets?
Originally, fidgets were designed to aid concentration in children and adults with attention deficit / hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) or with autistic disorders. However, these tools can be used by everyone! Indeed, simple movements like biting your nails, rotating your pen or even moving your leg nervously highlight the motor need we have, to concentrate or to de-stress. These tools that encourage manipulation are therefore an appropriate response to our movement needs.
