1. Flippy Chain Fidget Toy: Allows for smooth rolling and twisting movements for little hands, making this the perfect fidget for quiet venues like school, library visits, and church.
2. Fidget Cube: This one is a HUGE hit in our household. It’s perfect for kids with lots of energy as it helps them focus, and it also does wonders for those who suffer from anxiety, ADHD, and OCD as it helps promote a sense of calm. I particularly love the spinning feature. As a high-strung Type A personality, I find it very soothing!
3. Tangle Jr.: If your child has trouble sitting still, this is a great fidget toy to consider. Tangles are meant to be taken apart, allowing your child an easy way to express her creativity while simultaneously keeping her hands busy when she’s trying to sit still. Perfect for travel, doctors offices, etc., Tangles offer a great way to keep kids quiet without the use of electronic devices.
4. My Fidget Friend: This fidget is great for self-regulation and many teachers and therapists recommend this as a tool to help kids with ASD, ADHD, and OCD. Sliding the marble within the sleeve back and forth helps promote focus and concentration while also alleviating feelings of stress and anxiety, and it’s super portable to boot!
5. Toysmith Wacky Tracks: While I wouldn’t recommend this as a classroom fidget, Wacky Tracks are another great way to keep restless kids busy when they need to sit still. The chain can be bent into countless different shapes, allowing kids to use their imagination while also keeping them calm.
6. Fidget Pad: This is very similar to the Focus Cube, but it’s more compact and fits easily into a child’s pocket. I also love that it has a small cord/handle so you can attach it to your child’s belt/belt loop for easy access in school and while on the go.
7. Hand Fidget Spinner Toy: As much as I’d like to, I simply couldn’t write a post featuring the best fidget toys for kids without including the hand fidget spinner toy! While many schools have banned these toys as they’ve gained popularity, they really do offer a great way to help kids (and adults) with autism, ADHD, OCD, and SPD relieve feelings of stress and anxiety while also improving focus.
8. Roller Chain Fidget Toy: If your child likes to spin, this fidget toy is a great option. Kids can easily slip the chain links over their fingers and then twist them around and around. It’s a great way to create sensory input without the noise and distraction of other, more popular spin toys.
9. Fidgeto Sensory Fidget Bracelet: If you’re looking for a fidget toy your child can wear on his body, this may be the answer to your prayers. Fidget sensory bracelets offer a quiet way for children with ADHD, autism, anxiety, stress, and SPD to fidget discretely while they’re in school.
10. Sensory Fidget Stretch Toys: Perfect for tactile stimulation, you can pull, bend, squeeze, and stretch these fidget toys, making them another quiet way for kids to fidget in a classroom setting.
11.Monkey Stringy Balls: If you’re a parent who grew up in the 80s and 90s, you probably remember Koosh Balls, but I bet you didn’t realize they are perfect for fidgeting and providing sensory and tactile stimulation to young kids!
