An information card was provided listing every item in the box and some reasoning about how the item will benefit your child as well as some tips on using the items.
Playfoam Go! – Retail Value $14.99
Playfoam Go! comes with its own handy carrying case making it great for travel or bringing on outings. It came with 8 individually wrapped packages of playfoam in assorted colors. It’s fun to mold into different shapes and the lid of the carrying case has built-in shape molds. This foam is good for working your hand muscles and can help with stress relief.
Peacemakers Cards – Retail Value $24.00
This deck of cards is filled with affirming messages meant to help promote social and emotional growth in children, teens, and even adults. The cards encourage a growth-mindset, self-love, and confidence. They focus on seven specific areas: balance, peace, love, joy, power, intuition and forgiveness. The pack provides many useful ways in which you can use the cards with your child. I think these would be great for conversation starters at mealtime, but there are many other options as well. It’s a beautiful deck and I love the message of mindfulness that it promotes.
Stretchy Dough Ball – Retail Value $2.99
The ball is filled with dense foam putty. It can be squished and stretched and even bounced. This is a calming silent fidget, great for classrooms.
Froggy Squishimal – Retail Value $6.83
This squishy frog makes for a great silent fidget. It can be stretched and the beads inside offer a tactile sensation. This can be used to calm down or as a way to help refocus.
Sensory Stixx – Retail Value $7.99
This sensory tool can be easily kept in a pocket or desk and used for sensory stimulation. It can be rolled between your hands, rubbed on a desk under your arm, or even as a sensory brush on top of the skin. It’s dishwasher safe and latex free.
Rainbow Head Massager – Retail Value $4.95
My life is now complete! I never thought I’d find a head massager in a subscription box, and yet I’ve always secretly wanted to own one. This head massager has bright rainbow colored tines that gently tickle your scalp as you press the handle down on your head. The tips are smooth and give a relaxing massage, increases blood flow and circulation.
Verdict: This was a fabulous favorite Sensory TheraPlay box. While this box is especially geared towards children on the Autism spectrum 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. Plus so many of these items are just downright fun! I think the box fills a great niche market. The value was $61.75 this month which is well above the $46.70 cost of the box ($39.95 + $6.75 shipping). For the curation alone I highly recommend this box to educators, therapists and parents!
