Item details

Fidget Box for Worriers, Anxiety Aid, Meditations for Worriers, Worry Quotes and Meditations, Fidget Toys, Calming Kit, Care Package

This kit, containing 20 interactive items and 25 soothing and reflective quotes on a small key that fits neatly inside the box, is a perfect gift for yourself, a friend, colleague, boss, or even a young person--although be aware that many items are quite small or have very small parts. If you know someone going through a difficult time, these objects and quotes may provide a good measure of comfort.

The items and key are housed in an upcycled Altoid tin, although other containers are available (see item photos). The Atoid tin measures 3.5 x 2.5 x 1 while the other containers shown are slightly larger. This will be decorated according to your preference; please see item samples in the photos, or ask for something else--we love to customize!

The items contained in this kit can serve many functions; most are very tactile or functional in some way, such as moving parts, opening/closing, spinning, turning, etc. According to scientists quoted in Psychology Today, the Atlantic, and many others, research has shown that small, tactile objects are great for reducing stress and helping people focus. Fidget items serve as “playful, secondary interactions able to engage the interrelation of bodily movement, affective (emotional) state, and cognition to support primary serious tasks.”

The following items are contained in the kit:

* Poetry magnets; each kit will have a big variety of different words that can be rearranged in countless ways
* Miniature working padlock with keys
* Working miniature hourglass
* Working compass
* Peaceful panda decoration (blown glass)
* Miniature clothes pin (happy to include more than one)
* Working locket (you choose from those shown: seashell, storybook, unicorn, castle, owl, fox, giant octopus)
* Working survival whistle
* Working umbrella (mini)
* Heart worry stone (man-made material but very solid)
* Dice
* Utility clip
* Magical door locket (in each kit--in addition to another locket of your choice)
* Gumball machine (the tiny gumballs move)
* Globe (it really spins on its axis!)
* Treasure chest (opens and closes with magnet clasp to reveal colorful glass jewels)
* Real seashells
* Owl magnifying glass (real glass, works well)
* Crystal ball (decorative)

Here is just a sampling of the quotes included on the key:

“Meditation is not hard to understand. Anyone who knows how to worry knows how to meditate.” ~Jim Berg

“There is no path to happiness; happiness is the path.” ~Buddha

“What we pay attention to expands. What we pay attention to, we become.” ~Brenda Shoshanna

“Slow breathing is like an anchor in the midst of an emotional storm: the anchor won't make the storm go away, but it will hold you steady until it passes.” ~Russ Harris

“Feelings are just visitors, let them come and go.” ~Mooji

“We don’t stop playing because we grow old; we grow old because we stop playing.” ~George Bernard Shaw

“There is a voice that doesn’t use words. Listen.” ~Rumi

Estimated Shipping
Shipping to
Zip or postal code

For most items, I use USPS priority flat-rate shipping which ranges from $7.15 up to $13.50, depending on the size of the item. The exception is handmade jewelry items, which ship for $3 using USPS.

I do combine shipping, so I can can typically ship up to three items in a single box/package for one price.

Most items ship within three to five business days, and therefore most items will arrive within a week to ten days after order placement. If you need an item sooner, such a a bereavement gift, please let me know and I'll work with you!

By request, I am happy to do overnight shipping, with the buyer paying shipping fees above and beyond the regular shipping costs per item. Most of my listings have a "shipping upgrade" option at checkout; if you don't find this, just let me know through Etsy conversation.

I always provide the tracking number regardless of shipping method. If for whatever reason it costs more to send than anticipated, I will cover the difference.
