Sensory TheraPlay Box November 2020 Review

 

Each box comes with a one-page insert with photos of the items on the front and a brief description with their value on the back. It also includes their contact information along with 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 include a cute motivational card for us.

 

Spottington by Eeboo – Retail Value $21.99 (found here for $19.95)

This month we received a full board game from Eeboo, a company that makes awesome games and toys! This game is made for ages 5 and up and the directions come printed on the inside of the box in several different languages. The game pieces consist of six Spottington tokens in different colors, six pieces that fit together to form the board, and 250 spotting cards.

 

Setting up the board is really cool and simple. All of these hexagonal pieces fit together and the roads match up no matter where you place them or which way you arrange them. They are each double-sided, too so there are so many different ways to fit the board to make it different and exciting each time you play. I thought this was such a clever setup! We got our board set up and then we drew spotting cards and had to locate the image from the card somewhere on the board (it’s kind of like a giant Spot It! game). If you found it first, you place your token down and say “Spottington!” and then you get to keep that card. The first one to get to five is the winner. This game is really fun and I could see it being a great independent activity for honing visual perception skills. There are a lot of ways you could modify this game to suit the needs of your child, too!

 

Twiddle Squish’n’Stretch Textured – Retail Value $4.99

This is another fun toy with a lot of possibilities. Each of these stretchy noodles has a different texture that you can squish and manipulate. You can twist them together, tie them up, stretch them, plus the bright colors make them visually appealing. My kids liked these a lot!

 

Senso-Band Wearable Band – Retail Value $9.97, Listed Value $11.99

I really wish that I had this senso-band as a tool to use with one of my kiddos when I was a Special Education teacher! I love that this band is wearable, has some different textures, and that it is really wide making it more difficult to break or chew apart. For kids who mouth things, this would be a great way to safely provide that oral sensory input. If your child does not have oral needs, they can still benefit from the tactile sensations this provides!

 

Expanding Giraffe and Dog – Listed Value $3.99 (Buy 12 for $15.59)

We received some of these fun stretchy, bendy tubes in a box a long time ago and they were a huge hit with my kiddos. These are even more fun because they have animal heads and feet that fit in the ends of the tubes. My son loves the dog while my daughter has claimed the giraffe. These make some fun noises as you expand and close them and they twist and bend every which way.

 

Toysmith Glitter Hopper – Retail Value $0.99

We recently came across an old hopper that I had as a kid and my daughter loves it so she was thrilled to see this glittery blue one in the box! In case you aren’t familiar with these, you flip them inside out and set them on a table and they pop up into the air. I tried to get a video, but doing this one-handed was not working out for me! They recommend making this more challenging by trying to catch the hopper in mid-air. Fun!

 

Super Mochi Squishimal – Listed Value $5.00

This little guy is just super cute and squishy! The bunny stretches or you can just poke him and smoosh him for some gentle fidgeting. My kids liked this one a lot too! I wasn’t able to find this bunny anywhere other than in this wholesale catalog.

Verdict: This month’s Sensory TheraPlay box had some really cool items that my kids loved. The board game was our favorite and I know it will be something we play often while the expanding animal tubes were probably our second favorite. I liked that they included some really great sensory items that I could see working well for those with sensory needs, but as far as the value, it looks like we come up a little short this month at $46.93 for this box that costs $49.64 ($40.95 + $8.69 shipping). Just one more item in this box would have made me feel a little better about the value. If we could just get rid of paying for shipping, I feel like the box would consistently hold a better value for us because we discover so many cool toys and this box does bring a lot of joy to our home each month.

  1. In our classroom, we’ve had to put almost all our “break room” stuff away due to Covid, & give each child their own sensory bin. It’s been difficult finding adequate nonporous toys that we can sanitize to give the kids enough choices. It looks like this box has a lot of easily cleanable stuff, which is so smart to send out right now.

    • That’s a great point! I can’t even imagine how much harder Covid has made things that are already difficult enough as it is. 😔 Hope you’re hanging in there, Marion! My heart goes out to anyone in the classroom setting these days…well really anytime…but especially now. ❤️
