This is our NEW hand crafted Fatterpillar fidget in oil slick - which is a bigger, more weighted version (bead wise) than our caterpillar. In fact is 3.5 times heavier!
This one is a little noisier than the smaller caterpillar. WE like to pinch between beads as well as roll.
We have had our weighted beads individually oil slicked to create a stunning version of this Kaiko best seller. We also have this in a necklace version.
The weighted stainless steel beads roll between fingers beautifully. Many rub the cord also. This fidget is super soft in effect. You can push your fingers in between the beads for a similar sensation to the pea popper.
It is particularly great for those that stim with fabric, Blu-Tack rollers or like 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.
