Top 3 Fidget Toys | ADHD & Autism

First of all, can I say that allowing myself the freedom to fidget as much as I want has been liberating!

Before being diagnosed with ADHD, I was convinced there was something wrong with me.

Suppressing my urge to fidget definitely contributed to my anxiety!

(You can also refer to this as stimming :)

These are my absolute favourite fidget toys!

1. Fidget Cubes

I love supporting small businesses, and this design is calming to me. Also, compared to cheaper brands I've tried, the material somehow just feels nice. Maybe that's my sensory processing, but I love the feel of good quality materials.

I couldn't find the exact brand I got, but this one looks very similar

Noise: 7/10 - some of the buttons can be loud in public

Durability: 10/10 - tiny and easy to take anywhere!

Novelty factor: 10/10 - So. Many. Buttons

2. Fidget Spinners

A classic favourite

I'll always love fidget spinners!

Noise: 9/10 - depending on the brand, some are louder than others

Durability: 10/10

Novelty factor: 6/10 - I get a bit bored of it after a while

3. Bubble pops

I just discovered these, and I LOVE them!

It's the same satisfaction I get from popping bubble wrap (hello auditory stim).

And they come in rainbow!

Noise: 6/10 - again, depending on the brand, some are louder than others (although I like the loud ones, the popping sound is so satisfying)

Durability: 7/10 - it's a little larger than the cubes and spinners

Novelty factor: 10/10 - I could pop the bubbles for hours on end

Hope this helped!

P.S. You are safe. You are loved. You are enough.

You always were. You always will be.
