Finding Balance With Asperger's: A New Fidget Kit from The Therapy Shoppe

I won’t bore you with all the details of why we use fidgets for Quinn, since I did that in my first review. I will say that we can never have too many fidgets. They get lost or broken or he just plain gets bored with them. We also have several of the “busy hands bags” that I talked about last time, so we need enough fidgets to fill each bag and keep him entertained or engaged, depending on the situation. The great thing about each of the fidget kits from The Therapy Shoppe is that they are not the same.

The Focusing Fidget Kit #2 has a mini-eye poppin’ creature whose eyeballs pop out when squeezed, color changing ball, spiky pickle fidget which has soft spikes that provide tactile feedback, a tin of Thinking Putty which is very similar to Silly Putty but more iridescent, a small tub of Playfoam, a giant nut and bolt, 2 pencil critter fidgets, 3 fuzzy tye-dye balls, 2 starburst linkers, and an adorable squeezie animal (Quinn got a cat). Each toy keeps his hands busy, but some, like the eye poppin’ creature, help develop fine motor skills as well. Each of these toys has been a great addition to our bags and Quinn’s really enjoyed playing with them all.

The Focusing Fidget Kit #2 can be purchased for $19.99 at
