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.
