According to mental health professionals, the concept of fidget toys is not new and has been around for years. “I think a Slinky is one of the earliest fidget toys,” psychologist Dr. Harris Stratyner said. He said fidget toys are often used by doctors while treating patients with autism, anxiety, obsessive compulsive disorder and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder.
“When they fidget with a fidget toy, it takes their mind off — it soothes their mind. So it’s mind and body are one,” Stratyner said. These kind of toys can really help just about anyone to focus, he added.
“You can also generate ideas. It just centers you,” Stratyner said. “And when you’re fidgeting with something, your hands are feeding back to your brain a signal that you’re involved in a repetitive task. That repetitive task frees up your mind.”
“My kids have sensory issues actually, and some of them are ADD. But all of them like it,” Burek said. “It helps them think, helps them to homework.”
