Hoglet may look like something straight from a cartoon, but it’s actually a functional computer mouse. Think of it as a cross between a fidget gadget and a computer mouse that aims to make a big difference for those with learning challenges. The wireless computer mouse itself is made from food-grade, washable, non-toxic silicone and is powered by a single AA battery. Read more for a video, additional pictures and information.
In addition to children with learning challenges, it’s ideal for sensory seekers as well as tactile learning. This squishy computer mouse communicates with computers via a wireless USB receiver and auto-sleeps when inactive to save power. The design minimizes clicking sounds as to note irritate those with autism spectrum disorder (ASD).

Not everyone learns the same way. Traditional computer devices don’t provide the physical stimulation that many learning challenged students need. When I was doing my research, I found there were a lot of fidget toys out there: spinners, cubes, putties, stress balls, but I was surprised to see there were few, if any, functional fidgets,” said Parker Lynch, founder of Royal Oak-based HedgeHog Health and creator of the Hoglet.
