The bearing moves, as does the chain around it. Feels great rolled between two hands or used one handed - the options are endless.
When using two handed helps stabilise the core & minimise wriggling around. Roll it between palms for a scratchy/tickly sensation. This helps stabilise the core for wriggly bodies & those that have trouble sitting still. Also can be rolled in fingers or spun.
This is incredibly popular for older children, teenagers and adults. They are simple in design using stainless steel metal parts which give them a funky look and feel and also mean they do not break easily. These are small, discreet and perfect to keep in your pocket to take anywhere! They are quiet, making them ideal for the workplace, travel or the classroom.
Keeping the fidgets sanitised - They are fine to wipe, the trick is to wipe excess moisture off them. If left wet/damp, they can rust in appearance a little but generally does not affect function. Wiping with an antibacterial wipe or damp cloth then drying off thoroughly is the key.
Not suitable for children under three years old.
