Scratch Fidget by Grace Hancock

Grace Hancock's Fidgets are a series of five tools for therapeutic stress and anxiety relief. Each named according to their function, the faceted, palm-sized objects can be retrieved at times of needs to harness the calming powers of tactility.

The series is made up of Press, which contains a light powered by pressing a button; Rub, a simple object with a smooth surface; Squeeze, a rubbery and malleable tool; Scratch, which reveals a darker layer under its light-coloured surface; and Spin, a bright turquoise edition with incorporated spinning mechanism.
