Kaiko Fidgets manufactures industrially designed sensory tools for adults and children. They support mental health, assist in reducing anxiety & increase focus.
Kaiko Fidgets are made by Kai, who is autistic, dyslexic and has high anxiety. He started making fidgets for himself and soon realised there was very little available suitable for teens and adults. I am his mum, and an Occupational Therapist.
Together with Kai we have created designs to suit an extensive range of sensory needs. They are super cool & discreet, making them suitable for both adults & kids to assist with mental health, anxiety & focus.
Most of us fidget, whether it be pen clicking, hair twirling, tapping, doodling etc. There is proven brain science behind why 80% of us fidget. Fidgeting helps increase focus and has the additional mental health benefit of helping reduce anxiety. The difficulty is much of what we use to fidget with is either noisy, childish or breaks easily. On the other hand, Kaiko Fidgets are cool, discreet, quiet and durable. There is so little that is socially acceptable to utilise in the workplace which is how our range has developed over time.
We have some that assist with picking & harm minimisation (spikey range), rhythmic stimming (hand rollers and his chain fidgets) and soft soothing (caterpillar & caterpillar necklace). I am happy to chat through any of the range to match to your specific needs.

Here is what others have to say about the use of our products …
Fidgets that are trendy for tweens, teens & adults are scarce. In fact…until I came across the Kaiko team, I was certain they did not exist! It is incredible to think a tween boy decided there was a gap in the market, and he needed to have something he felt comfortable to hold & use when around his peers. The story behind how Kaiko was birthed is amazing. But better still, the products themselves all serve several different functions, with Kai’s amazing Occupational Therapist mum ensuring each customer knows the full extent of how to get the best out of each fidget. Clients I see crave the weight & proprioceptive input that the Kaiko range provides. They beg to sift through my box as we work on their goals. The full range of products purposefully target different fidgeting needs people have, & the input I receive with each purchase is informative, insightful and evidenced based. I can’t sing their praises enough.

I have been looking for fidgets for myself for about a year now but all the ones I have found were for children. I hadn't found anything that I was discreet enough to use at work. I thought I would order the tin as I was sure that out of all of them I would like 1 or 2. Imagine my surprise and excitement when I loved every single one! They are all fantastic.

Just a short note to say how much I appreciate the Kaiko medium chain fidget I have. I personally find it perfect for my thinking time when contemplating complex issues – somehow it helps me to stay focused and get less distracted. We have provided a number of these to staff, many of who carry them with them wherever they go for similar reasons. I would highly recommend this small investment to other businesses for their staff, especially in these challenging times.
