Sensory TheraPlay Box April 2021 Review

 

Each box comes with a one-page insert with photos of the items on the front and a brief description with their values on the back. It also includes 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 little motivational card for us. I love the cute snail on this one!

 

Ramen Noodlies by Schylling – Retail Value $5.99

I love the cute packaging that looks like a pack of ramen noodles, but much more colorful! There are five different colored noodle clumps inside and the noodles are soft, lightweight silicone that stretches and can be squished or knotted, or even just bounced around in your hand for some sensory play.

We got out some chopsticks for a silly fine motor activity! These are fun to stretch and play with and hide things in. My 3-year-old decided to hide his slug in them!

 

Cloud Puffz by Orb in Unicorn – Retail Value $13.99 (on sale for $10.48)

This toy is super fun and unique! They are very similar to Nuudles which are foam pieces that stick together when slightly moistened for creative and artistic fun, but these are a whole package with a theme and everything. The pieces are smaller, lightweight, and feature various shapes like stars, hearts, and crescent moons all in different colors. I loved that they could be dumped into the box for the kids to work from and they were excited about the shapes and the idea of a surprise toy! These are non-toxic and biodegradable which means I don’t have to feel guilty when I throw out their creations one day.

They also included some instructions for building and a little sponge to use for wetting our pieces. Here you can also see our cute surprise unicorn toy!

 

They were tasked with building our new unicorn a nice shelter! The puffs were a little tricky for my son to work with, but I can see how the smaller pieces and sticking them together would be a great fine motor activity!

 

Magic Sound Tube by Toysmith – Retail Value $4.99

This tube was a fun and exciting toy for my kids! The plastic tubing is covered in a fun mesh that you can play with and either end is covered with a foam piece. One end being a ball and the other being a handle so that you can hold it and swing the tube around to create a fun whistling sound.

My daughter was the only one who could get it working just yet. This will definitely be an outdoor toy for us because it seems like the effort it takes to swing it means hitting something (or someone) wouldn’t be good! The foam is lightweight and I don’t think it could cause much of an injury, but you definitely need your space when swinging it!

 

Finger Focus Highlighter by hand2mind – Retail Value $8.47

My middle son is just beginning to read and he just wants to skip all over the place and try to guess what he’s reading instead of focusing. This little tool will be perfect for focusing his attention on a word or two at a time to help him be more successful! I love that it came with four different colored pieces and that it hooks onto the tiny little ring to make it easier for pointing and reading. They noted that this would be great for kids with ADHD or dyslexia and I could see how it would help!

 

Rainbow Modeling Clay by Toysmith – Retail Value $5.99

My kids are all about worms and slimy slugs, so this toy was perfect for them. You can see how wet the slugs look up close! They do have a somewhat slimy, but not too gross texture to them and they are stretchy and even have a little suction cup on the bottom to help them stick to things. While the toy itself is cool, we loved the little set of slug facts they had on the back of the package!

The slugs invaded their breakfast! Luckily, the kids didn’t mind!

 

Egg Cha-Cha by Toysmith – Listed Value $2.99

Our last item is super simple, but one of those things that every kid will want a turn with. This cute tiny egg makes some fun sounds when you shake it. They recommend using it to get their attention, and I really love that idea! It also is great for making music, calming a child down (or distracting them from being upset), and if you shake it at different speeds the sound changes just enough that it can really be somewhat entertaining, too. I feel like we need to draw a face on this little guy!

 

Verdict: This month’s Sensory TheraPlay box was a fun one! I thought there was a great variety of tools to help children focus, work on fine motor skills, and have a little bit of fun, too! The Cloud Puffz set is a really cool and unique toy that I think we can get a lot of use out of since there are so many pieces to put together. The slugs and ramen were fun and the music tube and egg cha-cha were great for appealing to our auditory senses! The total retail value of our items came to about $42.42 which is a little low for a box that costs $49.24 ($40.95 + $8.29 shipping). I always find some value in the curation, but just know that this is a box where you don’t always get a great return value-wise. It is definitely always fun, though!

  1. This is always a fun review! I sent the link to the finger highlighters to my mom, who tutors dyslexic students. She hadn’t heard of them but thought they were cool!

    • Oh good! I hope she finds them helpful! Thanks for reading, as always, Amy in KC! 🙂
