Great way for older kids / teens to build strength, regulate and calm.
Hand Grip 5 piece Exerciser & Fidgeting Sensory Tool Kit.
This kit has been affectionately referred to as the "loosing your sh!t kit".
This set really comes into its own for tween and teens (& beyond) who are flipping their lids.
Great to keep on desk at home or school for them to channel their hormones and emotions into a task, rather than throwing the desk or other items. If you know what I am talking about, this kit is for you!
Way more functional and flexible than the Monkey Noodle & less dangerous too!
Also great for hand function, hand strengthening & hand exercises. Used effectively in dementia care also, especially for men, but not exclusively.
We also love it for the fidgeting & emotional regulation power these treasures hold!
Not suitable for under 5 years of age.
