The Fidget Blanket
The Fidget Blankets are for everyone! (approximate - 9" x 13")
The soft plush Minky fur has a pampering effect, with dozens of tactile surfaces built into one. When you move and manipulate the marbles inside the blanket, it will help to relax your mind and body. Squeeze, pet, or "fidget" with multiple fur textures and satin edges, it’s an amazing sensory tool. Elderly people, working adults, children, students, patients, or anyone who has trouble staying focused will experience the relaxing effect. Fidget tools can help you calm down when feeling overwhelmed by providing a different sensory output. Use it while waiting in line, restaurants or doctors offices, the fidget blanket can help individuals by giving them something safe to do or hold with their hands, rather than touching things around them.
What you'll be getting... The blanket is approximately 9" x 13", about the size of paper. The Satin edges are about 1.5-2" wide. The Faux-Fur (Minky) on both sides, plus the satin, will match and complement each other. The front is a glass like, densely packed, silky smooth Minky Faux-Fur from my "BUNNY" collection, and the back side is similar in softness but will have different texture & embossed patterns. The back side patterns has fibers facing different directions creating ridges and valleys. Hidden within the blanket, there are 3 marbles that can be pushed around the "Infinite Maze", it's up to you how to push them around. One at a time or move them all together. Options: Colors: Currently I have SIX colors to choose from. However, you can make a custom color requests, by email or call me in the studio. Satin: You can choose to make yours with or without. If you are looking to maximize the number of sensory objects, order it with satin. Marbles: Choose between 3, 6, or ZERO (no) marbles. (Please look through the pictures for more detail.)
What Are Fidget Tools/Toys?
Fidget tools and toys are devices small enough to fit in your hand or on your lap, which allow people to repeatedly manipulate them in numerous ways. The goal of such tools is to provide a purposeless, movement-based activity. Especially useful in helping children/adults with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) with self-regulation. Hand fidgets can help manage anxiety, improve attention/ability to focus, or even help someone calm down when dealing with a surge of emotions such as extreme anger or frustration.
Research for Fidget Toys.
Matthew Lorber, MD, Child Psychiatrist. Lenox Hill Hospital in New York
“If you are trying to focus on a task, but your hands are busy doing something else, it forces your brain to increase your efforts to focus on the task at hand. There have been small-scale studies that show people with ADHD do better on tasks if given some sort of outlet to get out their energy, to distract their hands. There have been studies that have shown in general that someone with ADHD with something to fidget with—such as tapping a pen (OR A QUIET FIDGET BLANKET)—perform better on tasks.”
Bridget Gilormini, director of PACER Center’s Simon Technology Center
“Fidgets give the user an opportunity to give their hands or bodies something to do, and allows their brain to then focus on the task at hand, such as listening to a teacher or reading.”
