Kaiko Fidgets Australia Joanne & Kai Seymon Kaiko Fidgets are made by Kai, who is autistic, dyslexic and has high anxiety. He started making fidgets for himself and soon realised there was very little available suitable for teens and adults. I am his mum, and an Occupational Therapist & also autistic and have ADHD. Together with Kai we have created & sourced designs to suit an extensive range of sensory needs. They are super cool & discreet, making them suitable for both adults & kids to assist with mental health, anxiety & focus. We have some that assist with picking & harm minimisation (spikey range), rhythmic stimming (hand rollers and his chain fidgets) and soft soothing (caterpillar & caterpillar necklace). I am happy to chat through any of the range to match to your specific needs. Kaiko Fidgets are cool, discreet, quiet and durable. There is so little that is socially acceptable which is how our range has developed over time.
