Warning:Choking hazard. Small parts.
Get calming, wearable sensory stimulation with the Kaiko Caterpillar fidget for the wrist or ankle. With almost 20 colours to choose from, there's a Caterpillar for every outfit, mood and situation.
Each Caterpillar fidget bracelet is made of durable cord and ten stainless steel beads. However, this version of the popular Caterpillar fidget toy is fitted with extra cord to wear around the wrist or ankle.
Because it's made with small beads, it may pose a choking hazard to small children, so only use it under adult supervision. They are not intended for children under 3.
Multiple Textures for Maximum Sensory Relief
Combining the smooth texture of metal beads with the pleasingly ridged texture of the fabric, this Caterpillar fidget is excellent for people who fidget with pens, fabric, laces, ribbons or hair ties. Unlike more complicated fidget toys, the Caterpillar is designed for people that seek low sensory input for comfort.
A Calming, Focus-building Experience
For people with anxiety, this fidget bracelet can work as a discrete way to ground themselves anywhere. It can be worn around the wrist or ankle or attached to a bag or clothing.
If you find yourself zoning out in meetings, social interactions and school, the Kaiko Caterpillar fidget bracelet is a great, undistracting way to keep your focus levels up.
For people with ADHD, autism, or other sensory-sensitive condition, wearing a Caterpillar bracelet or anklet keeps sensory overload at bay.
Curb Other Nervous Habits
We all have comforting habits, but unfortunately, some get in the way of our everyday lives. The Caterpillar bracelet is an excellent cessation aid for smokers and people who pull their hair or pick away at pens or clothing. Also, because it's made of fabric cord, it's the perfect fidget toy for people that stimulate with threaded clothing and similar textures.
With the Kaiko Caterpillar fidget for the wrist or ankle, relaxing sensory stimulation is always in reach.
This is a wearable product; however, you can use it the same way as the standard Caterpillar. You tie/knot this style to secure it to the wrist or ankle.
The weighted stainless steel beads roll between fingers beautifully. Many rub the cord also. This fidget is super soft in effect.
It is particularly great for those that stim with fabric, Blue Tac rollers, or low sensory input as it glides between the fingers & is very calming. It is small, discreet and quiet. It is a quiet fidget, making it ideal for the workplace, travel or the classroom.
Not suitable for 3 and under as beads can pose a choking risk

Kaiko Fidgets began in 2017 when the creator, Kai, saw a lack of fidget styles and designs in the Australian market. He needed them for himself, as he struggled with dyslexia and autism. By the age of 11, he started to make designs with the help of his mother. One of his first designs was a metal fidget, which quickly became popular in his area.
The family began Kaiko Fidgets after seeing a business opportunity. Its name is a combination of Kai and his younger brother, Kobi, and the company showcases the siblings’ favourite colours within the brand. With the help of their parents, they have been able to develop different types of fidgets and toys to help special needs children.
With a careful selection of products and materials, each product can assist with a person’s daily life. For example, some tools are for harm minimisation, while others give a soft and soothing feeling. Other products are similar to the fidgets, providing rhythmic stimming, which helps against anxiety. The goal is to provide support to a wide range of needs.
Keeping the fidgets sanitised.
They are fine to wipe , the trick is to wipe excess moisture off them. If left wet/damp they can rust in appearance a little but generally does not affect function. Wiping with an antibacterial wipe or damp cloth then drying off thoroughly is the key.
To shorten necklace:
Simply cut and retie knot at each end to the desired length & pull knot back into the casing of the clasp. We find the easiest way to find optimum length is to have arms at right angle across belly. The bead length should be about at this height.
