FIDGET TOYS FOR KIDS
WHAT ARE FIDGET TOYS?
Fidget toys are small items we can use with our hands to release stress, distract our focus from overwhelming situations, and self-regulate our own nervous system. We can do many things with them: flip, stack, switch, press, squeeze, pop… They are a great sensory tool we can connect with through the touch, sight, and hearing.

WHY DO WE USE THEM?
Anyone can use fidget toys in certain circumstances. We can all feel overwhelmed at some stage. They can help us concentrate and calm down. They're great in any situation, especially for those that need constant movement and sensory input and this can’t be obtained directly from their close environment. They're also great to bring with you on any car journeys or whenever the kids will need to be waiting (restaurant, airport, doctor…).
Figet toys can be quite small so you need to make sure they are age appropriate. We have a selection of fidget toys here and we make sure we only sell toys that are safe for children. Fidget toys can be dangerous if not sourced appropriately (toxic liquids or materials, small parts that can easily break, magnets ..) but we make sure that's not the case here. Everything comes with the CE mark (safety certificate) and it's of great quality, durable and non-toxic.
