An information card was provided listing every item in the box and some reasoning about how the item will benefit your child or why it was included in the box as well as some tips on using the items.

Sensory-TheraPlay-Box-March-2017-Sponge

Sensory-TheraPlay-Box-March-2017-Sponge2

SoapSox Turtle – Value $12.95

This is a machine washable scrubbing friend for the bath. You can insert a bar of soap into the plush animal or simply squeeze liquid soap onto it. This adds a nice textural element on your skin at bath time and Sensory TheraPlay Box recommends this for children who are nervous for bath time since it can act as a soothing stuffed animal.

Sensory-TheraPlay-Box-March-2017-Bath-Bomb

Dinosaur Bath Bomb – Value $5.21

Handmade by Etsy seller Penobscot Candle Co in Maine, this bath bomb for kids has a dinosaur hiding inside. The bath bomb is made with baking soda, Epsom salt, and kaolin clay. The Tutti Fruity scent reminded me of fruit punch in a pleasant way.

Educational Insights Playfoam – Value $7.59

My kids both love playing with Floam. It’s a very interesting texture which is much lighter and airier than Play-Doh and is slightly tacky to the touch. Sensory TheraPlay Box suggests it for fun tactile play time or as a stress reliever. Both of children spent close to an hour playing with this which made me very happy.

Sensory-TheraPlay-Box-March-2017-Frog

Sensory-TheraPlay-Box-March-2017-Frog2

Mega Stretch Frog – Value $12.27?

This stretchy frog can be stretched up to 5 feet long. It can be flung like a slingshot across the room or just used as a stress reliever by being pulled taught. I couldn’t find this exact frog for sale online, so I linked to a similar lizard toy.

Melissa and Doug ColorBlast! Activity Book – Value $4.89

This ColorBlast Activity Book is great because the marker doesn’t make any mess. It only works on the special paper used in the book making the colors magically appear. The information card mentioned that this book is good for visual discrimination as well as fine motor skill practice. Both of my kids loved it just as much as the Melissa and Doug Water Wow! books.

Sensory-TheraPlay-Box-March-2017-Ball

Sensory-TheraPlay-Box-March-2017-Ball2

OddBallz Stress Ball – Value $10.00?

This stress ball is filled with gel microbeads and is so soothing to squeeze. Sensory TheraPlay Box recommends this to keep little hands busy or as a calming tool. My husband, son, and daughter all had fun using it. I can’t find this exact ball for sale so I’m basing the price off of similar stress balls.

Sensory-TheraPlay-Box-March-2017-Fish

Everfloat Paperweight – Value $14.99?

This paperweight is filled with a blue oily substance that floats in the water and beads up when shaken. The little Nemo-type fish bob around inside. We’ve been using this as a calming toy to hold during time-outs. I’ve linked to a similar paperweight on Amazon.

Sensory-TheraPlay-Box-March-2017-Soap

Sensory-TheraPlay-Box-March-2017-Soap2

Watermelon Jelly Soap – Value $4.95

This watermelon scented soap cleans just like regular soap but is the consistency of Jell-O. It’s jiggly and brightly colored and it smells fantastic. It came with a small shower poof. The kids had a lot of fun using this squishy soap in the shower.

Verdict: I was very impressed with both the variety of items and number of items in our first Sensory TheraPlay Box. This box was packed! While this box is especially geared towards children with Autism or with sensory issues it’s also for “kiddos with emotional disturbance (e.g., hyperactivity, impulsivity, excessive anxiety, temper tantrums, poor coping skills).” My children were able to enjoy the items’ different textures and benefit from the stress-relieving components as well. As an elementary educator, I have worked with many children who have sensory processing issues, Autism, etc. who benefit from products such as these throughout the school day. I think the box fills a great niche market and also had fabulous value (more than $72).

  1. This is great for any kid!

  2. I’m very tempted to find some Play Foam for myself, I bet it would be so fun to just squish around. I’m really impressed with the value of this box; for this kind of thing I expect the value to often be in the curation. I have a friend who works in Special Ed and I’ll tell her about this box!

  3. This box looks amazing. I love this idea so so much!

    • I like this idea too!
