The Fidget Pillow by Robin Tenboer

When your children are born it is a joyous time in your life. We had three precious children now ages 7, 6, and 4. We were so happy when they were born but that happiness gave way to many days of frustration and trials. We started noticing their behaviors were not like those of other children that we were around. They were off in their own little worlds; they were unable to sit still. They would have outbursts and couldn’t handle noises that wouldn’t bother most kids. Kinslee also had several other sensory issues.

When the oldest two were 3 and 4 we finally got some answers. They both have ADHD. Marshall turned out to have AHDH and anxiety/depression and Kinslee has AHDH and Sensory Processing Disorder (SPD). When we received their diagnosis the psychologist recommended that we find something they could fidget with. I looked online and didn’t really find what I thought would best benefit the kids. Since Kinslee likes textures and wants to touch everything I wanted to design something that would keep her hands busy and semi-contained inside, so I designed the Fidget Pillow. The Fidget Pillow has multiple Fidgets sewn into the inside as well as several on each end. On top of the fidget pillow there is also a marble maze. These weighted Fidget Pillows have made a big difference in several kids lives. Through a lot of research and trial and error we have the current version of the Fidget Pillow as well as several other sensory products. Having gone through this process we were more prepared for when our third child Caleb was diagnosed with ADHD and ODD. The Fidget Pillows have been a blessing for the kids and we hope to help many more.
