Announcement   Welcome to The Fidgit Shoppe on Etsy! We are delighted you stopped by.

This shop is intended to provide a resource for those who have loved ones with cognitive or sensory disorders. After seeing how much those with Alzheimer’s are drawn to textures and objects, we decided to create portable activity blankets.

Our shop offers activity blankets with multiple textures through different fabrics and small objects. While these blankets were originally intended to provide a resource for adults with cognitive disorders (Alzheimer’s, dementia, traumatic brain injury, post-stroke), we have found that they also provide interest and interaction with children who have Autism or sensory disorders.

It is our hope that the products in this shop will appeal to your loved one’s sense of touch and encourage interaction.

About

Activity blankets for loved ones with Alzheimer's and dementia

The Fidgit Shoppe is a small business run by a mother/daughter team in memory of Lloyd, who battled Alzheimer’s disease. While caring for Lloyd, Ingrid noticed that he would unconsciously fidget with the zipper on his jacket or fiddle with the fabric on his armchair. Lloyd’s Occupational Therapist suggested making something portable with textures and objects to keep him interacting since he was becoming less and less responsive as the disease progressed.

This sparked the idea to customize a small lap blanket filled with textures and objects. Ingrid has been sewing since she was ten years old, so with these ideas, The Fidgit Shoppe’s first activity blanket was produced.
