We use organic buckwheat husks as the filling for all our toys. It gives them a very characteristic hand feel that will keep your child’s busy fingers engaged and will encourage feelings of focus and calmness.
Simply squeezing the toy and feeling the buckwheat husks move around under the stretchy cotton surface provides a calming sensation. It can be a huge help when your child is trying to overcome overwhelming situations, during short or long travels, or at bedtime, especially for children challenged by ADHD, autism, and anxiety.
According to Professor of Computational Media, University of California, Santa Cruz, Katherine Isbister and her amazing, fidget widget project, fidget toys can be very helpful to children with attention or anxiety issues helping them to stay focused and calm in the classroom.
The findings of this project align with our experience of how fidget toys can be helpful for children challenged by these disorders.
