Spikey Finger Fidget Details
Two fidgets come in a handy container for easy transport and storage. Each is made of a powdered and coated carbon steel. This fine material is designed to be flexible.
Who It's For
These fidgets are excellent for self-regulation. Those with nervous tendencies who need a positive outlet to release excess energy and stress benefit greatly from use. They're also a nice distraction for people with bad habits, such as smoking, picking, pen clicking, hair twirling, and tapping.
How it Helps
Playing with this stimulation toy often brings a sense of calm. It improves concentration, focus, listening, and learning. Plus, it increases fine motor skills, circulation, tactile awareness, strength, and coordination. In addition, the Spikey Finger Fidget supports mental health and promotes emotional regulation. All around, it's a beneficial product that boasts many stress-relieving qualities for children, teens, and adults.
Who It's Not For
The Spikey Fidget isn't for children under the age of three. Also, it's fragile when compared to other stimulating toys. Due to the soft metal composition, it won't regain its shape if it's stretched too much. Therefore, this isn't an ideal tool for those who like to pull things apart or test the durability limits of a product.
Ways to Use the Spikey Fidget
Rolling the Spikey up and down the fingers is the go-to method for many fans. For those inclined to self-harm, doing this intensely can cause a pressure sensation, satisfying the tactile craving to inflict physical punishment without actually hurting or damaging the skin. Rubbing the toy between the palms also works well.
It is ideally suited to those that like strong sensory input. The Kaiko Wrist & Finger Spikey Fidgets are one of our most popular fidgets for those who need deep and focused pressure to assist with self-regulation.
It is made of a powder-coated metal that is 'woven' to be stretchy and flexible.
It is an ideal fidget for those who pick at their skin, fingernails and clothing.
The Kaiko Spikey helps with self-regulation, calming, focus, concentration, tactile awareness and as a substitution for unhealthy/unhelpful behaviours.
Some ways to use the spikey
- Roll up & down the finger. It can be rolled using the same hand or an alternate hand.
- Rub between two palms
- Hold in one or two hands to fidget
- Place on finger & twist around (similar to a 'Chinese burn'), applying varying degrees of pressure-dependent on preference. This technique has been beneficial for some in minimising self-harm. It can provide the 'hurt' without harm to the skin. Of course, the spikey fidget does not replace accessing professional help. Nevertheless, it is a useful tool for the kit bag.
Please note that if wearing the spikey for any time, it is important to monitor the skin to ensure it is not compromising circulation.
- Age 3+ (not suitable for under 3's)
- Includes storage container
- Range of sizes
- Expandable carbon steel metal material
- The metal is highly durable but can be overstretched if used not under its typical use by rigorous stretching. It is not meant to be pulled significantly, so it may not suit some that like to pull things apart. It will not recover if overstretched.
The spikey material is not designed to be overstretched/ overextended using both hands. If overstretched, it will become out of shape and not return to its original form. Thus, not suitable for those that like to pull at things with two hands, like to pull things apart or generally like to test the limits of products.

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.
