As we shift to spending more time indoors, little things like fidgety fingers become more pronounced and, likely, more annoying.
Sensory fidgets and stress balls can be found everywhere in many shapes, colors, and sizes.
But what do these gadgets really do? And do they even help?
This time I’m not turning to research because I was able to find only one (1!) study on the effectiveness of these gadgets, and it said there was no measurable benefit.
Even so … I’m betting there is more to fidget toys than marketing.
