Sensory TheraPlay Box July 2020 Review

 

We received this one-page insert which includes photos of our items on the front with brief descriptions of them along with their retail values on the back. They have included their contact information as well as a disclaimer about how it is the responsibility of the adult to determine whether the items included are appropriate for the child. As someone with a Special Education background, I love that they include this since every child is unique and responds to various stimuli in different ways! There are some items that may not be appropriate for every child depending on those needs.

They always send a little motivational card each month and I love how bright this one is!

 

Educational Insights Pancake Pile-Up! Game – Retail Value $19.99 (found here for $11.49)

We love it when they include a game in these boxes and this is a fun and unique one! This is a relay-style game for ages 4 and up and can be played with 2-12 players (in teams). I love that the box opens up to look like a little griddle on the bottom!

 

Inside there were 1o different pancakes in 5 different flavors, 2 spatulas, 2 plates, and 2 plastic pats of butter along with 10 game cards. The quality of the pancakes is pretty great! They are hollow flexible plastic and they have strawberries, blueberries, chocolate chips, or bananas printed on top.

 

The object of the game is to look at the card drawn and then race to get the pancakes from the griddle and carry it back on the spatula to your plate. You have to keep running back and forth as you get all 6 of your pancakes, making sure to stack them in order before topping them with butter.

 

The kiddos had a lot of fun testing this game out and then they just had some fun making their own pancake stacks when we were finished. I feel like this is a pretty open-ended game and you could definitely find different ways to play. It would also be fun outside with a little obstacle course to go through! It’s perfect for developing motor skills, hand-eye coordination, and also developing visual skills as you try to match your pancakes to the cards.

 

Colorful Crawlies – Listed Value $3.99 (Buy a 4 pack here for $14.99)

This rubbery caterpillar is really cute as well as stretchy and full of texture. He is soft and fun to manipulate since he’s actually pretty long. It is a great quiet fidget. We practiced some counting skills with his little body segments and legs!

 

Tactile Tiger Brush – Retail Value $7.99, Listed Value $8.99

This brush is lightweight and features some medium-firmness bristles on one side and a raised tiger design on the other for a different tactile sensation. This feels good on your hands and arms or it can be used by just running your fingers over the bristles. The materials are approved for tactile and oral use so it’s somewhat safe for kids who mouth things. It’s a great calming tool or fidget that will fit easily into a bag since it is about the same size as a credit card. I think it’s pretty versatile and I can think of a past student of mine who would have really benefitted from a little tool like this!

 

Hyper-Flex Spaghetti – Retail Value $7.90, Listed Value $9.99

This soft spaghetti is fun to play with and shake around. The strands are stretchy and fun to pull on. It can also be used as a ball since it is so soft and would be great for practicing hand-eye coordination since the long “noodles” make it easier to catch and see!

 

Sommerly Wristful Fidget – Retail Value $7.00, Listed Value $9.50

This wrist fidget is made of soft stretchy spandex and contains tiny beads inside. It is very loose-fitting making it comfortable to wear and I could see this being a great fidget or calming tool as you manipulate the beads inside the band. They also included a $5 off coupon for us on their site.

 

This band is the smaller size. It fit over my wrist easily and was just slightly loose on my 5-year-old.

 

Bonus: Rainforest Frogs

We received a little bonus this month in the form of these cute little plastic frogs. My kids love any sort of animal toy so they’ve already claimed them and taken them to play with!

Verdict: This month’s Sensory TheraPlay box had a good mix of useful sensory/fidget items, like the brush and the wrist band, that were balanced out by the fun items like the spaghetti ball, caterpillar, and our game. While I really liked the mix and thought it addressed a variety of needs, the value feels a little off to me this month. I came up with a total of $46.87 and there were a few discrepancies between the listed prices and the retail values that I found. This box costs $48.22 ($39.95 + $8.27 shipping) so we are just shy of the total value, although if we count those bonus frogs, we might be pretty close. I think one more fun item might have really made this box feel complete!

To Wrap Up:

Can you still get this box if you sign up today? No, you will receive the August box—but hurry! Orders for August are only being accepted until 7/31 @ 11:59 pm. To receive the “current” box, you must sign up on or before the last day of the previous month.

COUPON: Use code WELCOME to save 10% off your first box!

Value Breakdown: This box costs $48.22 ($39.95 + $8.27 shipping) so with 5 items in the box, that means each item has an average cost of $9.64.
