Very compact and feels wonderful between the fingers. Rapid spin, which is super quiet yet very satisfying. This cog fits in a pocket and is very discreet. It is a quiet fidget, making it ideal for the workplace, travel or the classroom. Rolling the cog over hands and fingers gives great sensory input. Similar to a fidget spinner only much smaller. It is easily operated one handed.
Please be aware that you may need to tighten the two flat metal parts from time to time. They just screw together holding the cog in the centre.
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.
