Sensory TheraPlay Box January 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.
Rubbabu Ball – Retail Value $8
This ball is soft and fuzzy, with indents all over it. This makes it a great sensory ball that can be soothing for kids to touch. It’s made with ingredients safe for kids and natural rubber that’s easy to clean. It bounces well on carpet or hard floors, too! So along with being great as just a toy it’s also great as a hand fidget ball or stress ball.
Octopus Squish-i-mal – Retail Value $6
I couldn’t find this exact octopus but the card lists $6 as the retail value. This little guy is rubbery and wiggly, pliable and kinda stretchy. The part I think is coolest though is the body; it’s squishy and has beads inside that give it a really cool feeling. This can be used as a calm-down toy, or just as a fun general toy, too.
Scrub Bugs Hand Scrubber – Retail Value $9.99
This cute hand scrubber was inspired by the tools surgeons use to clean their hands. It has a textured sponge and soft bristles to get into the curves and creases of your hands, and make them 3x cleaner than with normal washing.
This also includes some sensory input and stimulation during washing. I was surprised, but my son loved this! He washed with it, but also just stood at the sink and played in the water with it, too!
Spiky Tactile Glove – Retail Value $9.99
This is definitely a strongly sensory toy! The soft spikes are fun to run your hands over, plus this helps practice small muscles in the hands when pulling the glove on and off.
Gideon Loved this! Once he had it on he didn’t want to take it off all day.
Boogie Board Jot 8.5 eWriter – Retail Value $29.99
This is an item that’s actually been fun for my whole family to play with! It’s a smooth, digital notepad!
So it’s just a really smooth surface and it comes with a stylus pen. When you write with it, your drawings show in a bright green trail. It stays until you push the round button and reset the board! This could be great to use for lists, “Scratch” paper for notes or schoolwork, and the feeling of drawing on it honestly feels pretty calming. There’s also magnets on the back for it to stick to something like your fridge, and I will definitely be bringing this on car rides! I just wish there were a string tying the pen to the board, but that’s easy enough to do myself.
Verdict: We loved this 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. He’s been obsessed with the Boogie Board, especially. The retail value is just about $63.97 this month which is above the cost of the box ($39.95 plus $8.65 shipping). I’m happy!
