My son (age 5) uses one at school occasionally. It seems to help him focus. If he gets fidgity during circle time (teacher reading books, etc.), they also use a sack of beans/rice. It's rather large (fits across his lap), so he gets the benefit of the weight. In addition, it's something to keep his hands busy - he can 'play' with the beans inside.
Uh Oh...may have to change my scs name :) Mom to Alex (11), Zack (7) and Sam (1 1/2)
