So I decided I should try out a tangle toy, because I do actually fidgit a fair deal and feel it might be helpful in those ‘Oh shit I’m having a sensory overload moment’ in classes that have been going on lately and just generally hopefully something to focus on in times of nervousness/anxiety etc
I got mine from a UK based Amazon shop called The Learning Shop and it was very cheap and arrived quickly
What I like so far is the size, because it’s easy for me to stick in a pocket so it’s not as if it’s super conspicuous, and that I can quite easily manipulate it with one hand, and do things like keep it on my wrist or my thumb.
And how it’s very easy to manipulate back into it’s folded state. And how it doesn’t have a funky plastic smell on getting it out of the package, and how it’s a nice smooth plastic so you don’t get any weird texture
It’s not silent, as you’d probably work out, but it’s to me a fairly pleasant clacking sound, but I know if I use it in class it might be fairly noticeable just depends on how loud the class is.
