Kai is a 12 year old young man from Melbourne who has dyslexia and autism and who struggles with anxiety. He started making fidgets from bike chains and metal parts to help himself with calming and self regulation. Now he gets to help others too, through his range of Kaiko fidgets!
Kaiko fidgets are great for kids and adults who enjoy fidgeting, or who need to fidget in order to help with calming, learning, attention and concentration. Fidget tools are great for people who struggle with anxiety and who seek comfort through hair twirling, pen clicking, nail biting, picking, tapping etc. Great for people with ADHD, ADD and ASD, but also for anyone who wants to keep their hands busy. Kaiko fidgets are discrete, quiet and small so fit easily in your hand or pocket and are portable.
This Centipede fidget is a 2019 addition to the Kaiko range. The small rings feel awesome to fiddle with. Kai loves using it on his thumb or rolling it in his palm. This fidget feels soft as far as metallic fidgets go and rolls in the hand or up and down fingers.
