Meeting sensory needs with comfort, warmth, activity.


Twiddles® are soft, therapeutic comfort and activity aids for people with a wide range of sensory-related conditions, such as:

  • ADHD
  • Angelman Syndrome
  • Arthritis
  • Cognitive Impairment
  • Developmental Delays
  • Down Syndrome
  • Stroke Recovery

For sensory dysregulation conditions, Twiddles are a less-expensive, drug-free therapy option, ideal for use at home or in a rehabilitation setting. Twiddles can help:

  • increase or decrease light touch sensitivity
  • “wake up” the body to increase body awareness and sensations
  • calm or desensitize in preparation for potentially problematic activities, such as haircuts, manicures or dental appointments
  • develop body organization for maintaining attention and appropriate behavior for a given task or activity

In the case of arthritis and stroke, Twiddles provide a low-cost, low-tech rehabilitation option. They’re an easy way to:

  • exercise hands and arms
  • regain fine motor control and skills
  • improve strength and dexterity

For those with ADHD, Twiddles encourage repetitive tactile stimulation that can help:

  • reduce agitation and distractibility
  • provide a calming effect along with enjoyable activities
  • maintain attention and appropriate behavior for tasks and activities.

Each Twiddle is made from a cozy, durable fabric. Tethered inside is a flexible, soft-plastic orbit ball. Twiddles remind that special someone they are cared for, even when you can’t be with them.

Attached to the outside are three detachable gadgets:

  • a sealed satin or buckskin crackle pouch
  • a soothing strand of textured ribbons
  • a playful loop of colorful wooden beads

Additional features:

  • a Velcro® pull-tab
  • a name tag
  • machine-washable
  • safety-tested to meet U.S. & European standards
