The amazing Kaiko Finger Spikey fidget has been an instant fidget favourite for teens and adults! It provides firm and textured sensory feedback when rolled up and down the finger. Ideally suited to those that like strong sensory input.
They are made of a powder coated metal that is 'woven' to be stretchy and flexible with firm input to the fingers.
The Kaiko Finger Spikey Fidgets is a popular fidget for those who need deep and focused pressure to assist with self regulation. They are an ideal fidget for those who pick at their skin, fingernails or clothing when feeling stressed or anxious and are a handy pocket-size.
Some ways to use the finger spikey:
- Roll up & down the finger. It can be rolled using the same hand or alternate hand. This is great for focus and concentration.
- Rub between two palms for a scratchy textured feel.
- Hold in one or two hands to fidget.
- Place on finger & twist around using thumb (similar to a 'Chinese burn') applying varying degrees of pressure-dependent on preference. This technique has been particularly helpful for some in minimising self-harm. It can provide the 'hurt' without harm to the skin. Of course, the spikey fidget does not replace accessing professional help. It is a useful tool for the kit-bag.
- Place on one finger at the base (middle finger often best) & squeeze/clench fist. This is, for most, the way they use it for harm minimisation.
Please note if wearing the spikey for any period of time that it is important to monitor the skin to ensure it is not compromising circulation.
- Age 3+ (not suitable for under 3’s). Best suited to teens and adults.
- Made from expandable carbon steel metal material.
