Fidgipod Tactile Hand Fidget – Value $9.99

This hand fidget is appropriate for all ages. It has a non-skid base and you can rub your palm or foot over the rubber nubbies for sensory input.

Stretchy Lizard by Warm Fuzzy Toys – Value $3.00?

I wasn’t able to find this exact stretchy lizard for sale so I am estimating its value. This lizard can be squeezed and stretched and is great as a calm-down tool.

Lavender and Chamomile Essential Oil Calming Dough – Value $4.00

This dough is not only soothing to squish, pat and roll but the scent is amazing. It comes in a handy tin so it can be stored right in your purse or pocket to have whenever needed. It’s handmade in small batches with nontoxic ingredients. I love how it was stamped with the word “breathe” and I will keep this at my desk for days when I’m feeling stressed out.

Melissa and Doug Scratch Art Pad – Value $6.24

This is a fun craft to do when your child needs some refocusing or a calming activity. We will be packing it as a travel activity when we are on the plane later this month. Using the wooden stylus you scratch off the black matte coating to reveal the holographic silver or rainbow swirled colors underneath.

Liquid Layers Visual Stimulation Timer – Value $7.87

This liquid bubble timer is so relaxing to sit and watch. The blue and pink colors drip down and remind me of a lava lamp. It’s been great with our kids when they are having a tough time and need to sit and take deep breaths and just relax. Sensory TheraPlay also recommends using it as a transition tool “when the timer runs out we are going to do…”

Squishy Smiley Moody Face – Value $2.50

This is like a stress ball and a koosh ball combined into one friendly fun toy. The ball isn’t filled with beads, it’s more of a dense sand and it’s very satisfying to squeeze.

Playable Art OSM – Value $8.95

OSM (pronounced: awesome) is a very cool toy. It keeps flipping around as you twist it inside out. The discs can also be unclicked and combined with other OSMs to make longer chains. It’s made of a heavy duty plastic and is kind of addictive to play with!

This month we also received a bonus Dr. Seuss quote sticker. Cute!

Verdict: We love receiving our Sensory TheraPlay Box each month. While my kids don’t have sensory processing issues, they do have times when they need to relax, calm down, refocus, etc. and almost every toy/tool we have been sent has come in handy. While this box is especially geared towards children on the Autism spectrum it’s certainly helpful for kids with hyperactivity, impulsivity, excessive anxiety, temper tantrums, or poor coping skills. As an elementary educator, I work with many children who benefit from products such as these. I think the box fills a great niche market and the value (over $42 this month) was more than the cost of the box ($39.95) though it didn’t quite cover shipping. For the curation alone I highly recommend this box to educators, therapists and parents!

Jessica’s addiction started off slowly enough with Birchbox, but it has grown and grown over the last three years. An elementary school librarian and mom of two she loves boxes that are child-centric. But she’ll never turn down a good fashion, beauty or tasty treat subscription.

  1. I definitely want to get this box. I work with Birth to 21 ages, and this would be great for the young ones. We also have a ADD program.

  2. This sounds exciting for Me and My daughter. She has ASD also other special needs. Sensory being an experience for us. Looking forward to hearing more about this

  3. This is fantastic! I have a 12 year old (it’s her birthday!) on the spectrum and sensory toys help her so much! We have a stockpile but are always looking to add more.

    • Sounds like this would be wonderful for her!
