The Crunchy Caterpillar (so named by a gorgeous customer Nina who coined it when they tried it as a prototype here at camp Kaiko) is the cousin to our Caterpillar fidget.

It has larger stainless steel beads WITH A DIFFERENCE!   They have texture and create a sound and 'crunchy feel' on roll.  It’s a bit similar to rolling the flint of a lighter in sound and sensory input. 

It just had its debut at a face to face event and was a MASSIVE hit.  We saw squeals of excitement from many and the odd stimming jumps which was just heartwarming! However, for some the texture was icky.   You know immediately with this one if its from you.  Watch the video on it being used and from that you should know if it is for you or not just by hearing it.  

Many rub the cord also. You can push your fingers in between the beads for a similar sensation to the pea popper.

Not suitable for 3 and under as beads can pose a choking risk.

 Please note they are made using cord that can frey over timesue to friction.  This is wear and tear and cannot be avoided.  The time this takes to occur can depend on how the fidget is used. 

This is available in black cord with silver beads however we can MAKE TO ORDER other colours on request.  Please just put a note in the CART stage what colour cord you want.  Please be aware that this may add a day or two to the delivery time as it is made for YOU. 

"This has really become one of my go-tos. I have the silkworm fidget which is also lovely, but the feedback the crunchy gives me is next level. its one of the fidgets making it's way onto a cruise ship with me! its also not too loud, so i can have it in uni classes! can't recommend this enough Jessy J June 2023"
