5. Poppin Pipes Pokies

Our pokie offers the same sensory relief as its larger counterparts, with pop noises that will encourage your child's imagination while they build structures or anything else they can imagine! Ideal for helping keep little hands busy during those long hours working on their project at home - it also provides auditory stimulation, which is important when developing skills such as coping skills needed in everyday life.


6. Tri Fidget Pad

The 10 Functions Fidget Pad is a must-have for all fidget toy enthusiasts! This ergonomic design fits perfectly in your hand and helps calm anxious or nervous energies while promoting a focus on the task at hand. Flip a switch on this innovative device (or play around with some joypad buttons), and roll through bearing balls as well if that sounds better suited towards what YOU need; you'll be able to find an endless amount of possibilities with just one simple playing style - which makes it easy when transitioning from activity A (work)to B(play).
