If your child constantly fidgets in his or her desk, or at home while doing homework, the Desk Buddy Sensory Bar is for them. A team of Occupational Therapists, School Teachers, and product engineers combined efforts to create this product for use both at home and in the classroom. For children who are constantly seeking different textures to touch or "fidget" the Desk Buddy is both practical and socially acceptable in a school setting. It is simply a ruler sitting on their desk. The Desk Buddy, made from an FDA approved material, is even safe to chew on should the sensory need arise. This product is completely dishwasher safe, and naturally bacteria resistant.
