We study strange dibaryons based on the SU(2)-embedded = toroidal soliton. Treating the excursions of the soliton into strange directions as small rigid oscillations, we obtain a good approximation to the bound state approach. We calculate the dibaryon mass formula to order (formula presented) and find that the doubly strange (formula presented) dibaryon is bound by about 90 MeV.
