Did a teacher ever tell you to stop wiggling or fidgeting in your chair and sit still? With the Vidget™ System, you don't have to! Plus, it's actually better for you. Being able to fidget in a classroom improves focus, inspires creativity, and promotes calmness. It creates a healthier learning environment by providing a safe and quiet way to release some of the endless energy kids have. Vidget™ inspires kids to move naturally and celebrates imaginative play while learning!
Moving is healthy and fun! In a classroom, students are MORE focused because there is freedom to move their bodies. At home, it's just a lot of fun playing with the Vidgets™, especially when you have more than one.
We want children to embrace the idea that a chair doesn't have to be just a chair and inspire them to use their imagination. Parents and teachers are focused today on how to create "innovative thinkers" but they are still using the same old chairs and desks that are more of an obstacle vs. adding a benefit to the learning process. To us, that's like riding a horse and buggy while using your iPad! Sounds kind of silly doesn't it?
modular & versatile.
The Vidget® is a three-in-one. It can transform from a chair into a desk or stool by simply turning it over. The modular & versatile design of the patented pending Vidget Organic Seating System™ provides many opportunities for teachers and parents to work together with children to build their own environments based on individual and group needs.
Combine Vidgets to work together as a system to inspire collaboration & learning in a home or classroom environment. Need a table for group time? Push a few Vidget desks together and create a work surface just the right size.
Occupational and Physical Therapy Benefits
Therapy bands slide under the chair with ease allowing children to improve motor skills, strengthen muscle tone and allow a release of energy... and they get to fidget at the same time!

"A lot of kids need textures and sensory input. Some kids use it to calm down, some use it to engage a different sense which helps their brain focus for longer and be able to engage better in a passive learning experience when they are just listening or the room is quiet."

just my size
The Vidget Organic Seating System™ works for all sizes. To determine the Vidget size to purchase: with the child's feet flat on the floor and knees bent at a 90º angle, measure the distance from the floor to the back of knees. This is the child's appropriate chair size.
We have many adults that are thrilled to be using a Vidget® in their home or office. College students will love the modular benefit in their dorm rooms and can't wait to start fidgeting!
UPDATE Summer 2016: We have updated the design of Vidget based on customer feedback. As a result, some of the dimensions have changed. Small and medium vidgets received before Summer 2016 (model numbers VG-12-1001 and VG-14-1001) may not stack or nest correctly with new Vidgets purchased. Feel free to call us with any concerns you may have. 800.312.3172

"We thought what was quite incredible about it was that we could really imagine a kid trying to figure out how to use this piece of furniture and be able to find all these different ways which to work. Kids are inclined to move around when they are doing things and we thought this would be a great solution. Instead of a more traditional table or chair, we like the idea of using this in different ways, especially for children of kindergarten age. Clearly she looked at kids working before. So we really congratulated her in looking at the user type that she was looking at and using a material that we think can withstand children." Read more >>
Vidgets are rotationally molded using high-density polyethylene plastic to help make the product affordable and accessible to homes and learning environments. Polyethylene is durable, easy to clean, resistant to scuffing and a more sustainable option than steel furniture. We believe strongly in providing every child the opportunity to own a Vidget®!

They found that the more intensely that the children with A.D.H.D. wiggled and fidgeted — the more ferociously they bobbled their legs — the more accurate their answers were.
