The benefits of using these toys in the classroom are almost as numerous as the ways we can use them.

  • Create a relaxed playful mindset.
  • Engage the whole brain -- discussions are left-brained. Toys tap into the creative right side.
  • Versatility -- they can be used for stress relief, games, team selection, and reinforcement. 
  • Encourage participation -- people can't keep their hands off them!

Customer Reviews

Enrich the "sensory diet" of your learners. Our "fiddles" may look like toys to the untrained eye, but they are truly serious learning tools. Kinesthetic learners will focus better and absorb your material more quickly if they have something to do with their hands.

  • VARIETY:  Offer a variety of "toys."
  • TOOLS not TOYS:  You can either let these "toys" speak for themselves or let people know that they are "tools" and help some people focus better.
  • FLOATING ATTENTION:  Explain the idea of floating attention – the part of your mind that wanders when a lecture or conversation doesn't take your complete focus. Instead of daydreaming, which takes your mind completely off topic, fidgeting and doodling can use that energy more productively.
  • DEBRIEF: Mid-way, or after a meeting, ask your group about the impact of the "toys."  Find out if they were found to be helpful or distracting. Ask of there are other favorite fidget toys they'd like to have on hand.
  • STAND AND STRETCH: Don't rely only on fidget toys, invite your group to stand, stretch, or walk around if they need to get the blood moving back to their brain.
  • FOOD AND WATER:  Remember food and water are also critical to maintaining focus over long periods of time.
