Sensory & Fidget Toys
Fidget and sensory toys can help your child with moments of anxiety. They can also help them maintain focus too. Sensory toys provide a distraction from negative feelings, shifting attention from thoughts to pleasant sensations. They can also help your child to focus by providing that same sensory pleasure. And research backs this up.
These pom-pom balls are fantastic sensory and fidget toys. They are great to go in your calm kit or Magic Box, or to simply have handy for when your child is feeling worried. I often use them as part of my Play Therapy kit.
I love the way they feel and the rainbow colours are fun too. The children I have used them with enjoy passing them from one hand to another as a calming and soothing experience. They also love to throw them to each other. They are soft and light so won’t do any damage. They come in a set of six in a drawstring cloth bag. You can split the pack between multiple Magic Boxes, but I think having two means you can throw them to each other. They are a good size for children’s hands and can easily fit into a pocket.
These stringy balls are made of high-quality silica gel. They are BPA free, phthalate-free, non-toxic, safe, strong and durable.
At £9.99 for the six balls, they are good value for money. I’ve been using them in my Play Therapy kit for months now and they have stood up well to regular use.
