Sensory TheraPlay Box March 2018 Review

Gotta love a Mr. Rogers quote!

Each box includes an info card with a blurb about the featured items that month.

The reverse side has pictures of each item and specific information, as well as a retail value and what kinds of therapeutic benefits each item can have.

eeBoo About Face Cards

eeBoo About Face Cards – Retail Value $16.95

This set of cards let you and your kids make faces out of photos of everyday objects. I think it’s a cute idea! My 2-year-old didn’t play with it for very long so far but it was fun. The info card says this is a great way to help children discuss and identify different emotions in others and also in themselves.

I think these are really cute because it’s lead me to be more creative with everyday stuff too and I’ve been serving him food in the shape of a smiley face, and he’s been making faces out of real things, too! It’s been fun to see him enjoy this and get the hang of the idea.

Everfloat Penguin Paperweight – Retail Value $6.99

I’m sure you’re familiar with this kind of thing – it’s a little block full of this blue viscous liquid that the penguin figures don’t sink into so they always stay floating on top! It’s not a revolutionary toy but I can tell Gideon is loving shaking it and moving it back and forth and watching it settle and trying to get the penguins to sink. It was included in this box because it can be hypnotizing and calming to shake it and sit and just watch it settle.

Here’s a close-up of this from the photo of everything together – it photographs much better in a context than alone in front of a white backdrop.

Twiddle Fidget Toy – Retail Value $9.99

This is a long chain of ball and socket links, that make up a fidget toy. You can bend, twist, and crunch this thing and it’s kinda cool! Not sure Gideon is into it for making specific shapes or structures yet; so far he seems to like to pull it into a million pieces and then walk away, haha.

Hyper-Flex Stretchy String – Retail Value $4.05, Listed Value $5.99

There was a glove made out of the same kind of material as this in a previous box and I gotta say this stuff is weird. The rubber is super squishy and stretchy and soft and wiggly. They’re included because they can help with visual motor skills and bilateral hand coordination! Gideon loves these. I think they feel funny and they pick up a lot of dirt 

Senseez Soothables Lil Turtle Massager

Senseez Soothables Lil Turtle Massager – Listed Value $12.99

This is a handheld massaging toy that can help with sensory stimulation, focus, and calming. It requires batteries and a small screwdriver and I LOVE that Sensory TheraPlay Box included those for us!

This thing is nifty. The outer case is soft and textured. The massager can be taken out easily and is just a button that you need to hold down to activate the vibrations. This also works well to help numb areas, like for a few minutes before a blood draw.

Swingos Hand Fidget – Retail Value $5.99

This fidget toy is made of 3 circles that are seamlessly attached to each other, and they swing around each other in various ways.

It’s pretty fun to play with and figure out, plus there’s no buttons or levers or spinners so it’s totally silent which is great for a classroom setting.

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 has been responding well to the toys included in these boxes and it’s been fun to see what kinds of things are benefitted or developed while playing with them. The retail value is at $56.96 this month which is above the cost of the box ($39.95 plus shipping). I’m happy!

  1. I love this box but I just can’t get over the shipping charge. My 12 yr old son is Special needs and would enjoy all these things. I may have to overlook the shipping and order it. I’ll wait for next month’s spoilers.
