When Kody was diagnosed with ADHD, he began looking online for resources made to support neurodivergent adults, and was disappointed with what he found. He set out to change that.
He created a TikTok account, kodylukens, where he frequently posts informative videos on ADHD, autism, anxiety, and other facets of mental health. Fans of his content often say that his page helps them understand themselves better, as well as feel a sense of community.
Beyond his goals on TikTok to increase understanding on the subject of neurodiversity, he's also created Stimagz, a magnetic stim / fidget toy designed for neurodivergent adults, by neurodivergent adults.
Stimagz are the first of many resources Kody plans to create in order to support fellow neurodivergent people around the world.
All of our packaging is made of 100% recycled material, and is 100% recyclable / compostable.
We believe that protecting the planet is worth the extra cost on our end to work with environmentally focused partners.
Stimagz went through dozens of prototypes before finally arriving at the end design.
We tested different combinations of materials, designs, and magnetic strengths in search of the perfect stim toy.
Since perfecting the design, we've begun working with a manufacturer to create the final products.
Stimagz entered into a local entrepreneurship competition in February of 2022, in which it placed first in the Traditional Business category.
The winnings associated with the competition allowed us to work with a manufacturer and bring Stimagz to life.
Everyone on the Stimagz team is either ADHD, autistic, or both. Through our personal experiences we knew what we needed Stimagz to be, and we built it for you.
We hope you love them as much as we do :)
Stimagz is launching on Kickstarter, a pre-sale platform for small businesses, in Fall of 2022. Enter your email to be notified when they're available!
