Sensory TheraPlay Box February 2018 Review
An information card was provided listing every item in the box and some reasoning as to how the item will benefit your child as well as some tips on using the items.
Yogibo Aroma-Mate Dog – Retail Value $15
This is such a great idea! This is a little dog that has a lavender pouch with beads or rice or something inside.
You can take the pouch out through a velcro slot in the back and this whole thing can actually go in the freezer or microwave! It’s a great size, too. Big enough to hold but not so big it’s hard to be portable (car trips) or tossed in a tote.
Gideon loved this “warm puppy” right away!
Kikkerland Rainbow Twirler Spinner – Retail Value $4
This is cool! You twirl this in your hands and it makes different shapes as it spins. Plus, it’s shiny so it’s extra mesmerizing.
I chuckled at the fact that the packaging says it can be used to “distract your enemies.” Not sure my 2-year-old has any enemies but we’ll be sure to keep this in the first line of defense just in case!
Zip-Itz Bracelet – Estimated Value $3.99
This has been a fun fidget toy for my son. he likes to just zip it and unzip it back and forth in the car and when we’re waiting somewhere.
I also like that it has a snap closure and he’s worn in on his wrist once or twice and neither of us has to keep track of it that way.
Hyper Flex Inside Out Ball – Retail Value $4.99
This ball feels so weird. It’s reversible and is smooth on this side, but has soft spikes on the inside.
It’s interesting and my toddler loves it but it’s a dirt magnet. This really is just a cheap trinket, good for some entertainment but not a long-living toy.
Yogibo Squeezbo Mates, Owl – Retail Value $7
This cute, squishy little owl is here to help your kids’ stress, fidgeting, and focus!
It’s adorable, and you can squeeze it all you want and it goes back to its original shape. It’s a little stiffer for a stress ball, so you can’t squeeze it into crazy shapes, but it works great.
Crazy Aaron’s Precious Thinking Putty, Pure Platinum – Retail Value $12.08 (found here for $9.99)
This putty is “like chewing gum for your hands,” and I’d say that’s a pretty accurate description. This stuff is odd! It’s stiff but soft. Stretchy, but you can get to a point where it rips. It’s stick and doesn’t stick to stuff – so weird!
This stuff is perfect for little hands to roll, squish, stretch, squeeze, etc. and I don’t think it’d be a messy thing to play with at all. Plus, I like the storage tin it comes in, too.
SmartKnit Kids Seamless Sensitivity Socks – Retail Value $7.95
These socks have no seams, which is great for kids with sensory issues. They also have no defined heel, which makes them perfect for kids to learn how to pull on by themselves!
They’re also made with a material designed to wick away moisture to prevent them from smelling, and have a non-binding top that’s supposed to keep from slipping down or leaving irritating indents. The fabric is really soft and feels like a strong knit! The design clings to my son’s feet well and I love these socks for him.
Verdict: This was a really nice Sensory TheraPlay Box. This box is especially geared towards children on the Autism spectrum or with sensory issues, and also for “kiddos with emotional disturbance (e.g., hyperactivity, impulsivity, excessive anxiety, temper tantrums, poor coping skills).” But, honestly, I feel these things are fun and helpful for any child. My 2-year-old son responded well to the different items meant to encourage focus and stress-relief, and had fun with the textures and all the toys. The retail value is just over $55 this month which is just above the cost of the box ($39.95 plus $8.65 shipping). I’m happy!
