    Carousel

    Exciting mini carousel - a real spin!


    Jo Says:

    The carousel is great for vestibular input and core strength.
    I use it to allow children who love to spin, a chance to ‘spin safely’ – no more bumping into objects or other people!

    Used at the start of a lesson it can help to calm some children in readiness for learning and for others it helps to alert them and improves motor planning.

    At home it can be used at the start of the day to alert your child ready for school. Alternatively if spinning has a calming effect on your child, you could use this as part of their bedtime routine.

    Product description:

    The seat is placed at a slight angle to allow the child to propel the Carousel by shifting their centre of gravity. It is also possible for younger children to use their feet to set the seat in motion. Seat has a thick edge for children to get a firm grip and hold tight when the carousel is moving. Develops muscle integration as well as strength.

    Children’s vestibular sense in combination with sight is also stimulated to help improve balance.

    The Carousel consists of a solid, moulded plastic seat on a steel disc mounted with a rotation joint. A solid and stable metal base with rubber feet ensures safe spinning.

    Suitable for children aged 3- 10 years.

    Scooter Board

    Roller board for play and therapy.


    Jo Says:

    I love this product. It is fantastic for vestibular and proprioceptive input as well as core strength. Children love scooting around on it and it is so versatile. If you have more than one you can organise group games and races.

    Note: We have an entire section of activities devoted to use of a scooter board in our downloadable resources area of the website.

    Product description:

    The Scooter Board appeals to children and combines play and the training of motor skills. The Scooter Board has been developed in partnership with children’s physiotherapists to ensure safe use by any child irrespective of motor skills level.

    It combines function, safety and design. The raised front part of the Scooter Board supports the coccyx when the child is sitting and the sternum when child is lying down.

    The Scooter Board is slightly tapered at the front to give increased freedom of movement for the child’s arms and the wheels are screened to minimise the risk of running over the child’s fingers. Quality wheels with double ball bearings and non-smudging wheels in clear PU.
    The narrow sides act as handles where the child’s hands are protected by the protruding corners. Made of plastic with inserts of EVA foam to give the Scooter Board an attractive surface.

    Seesaw


    Jo Says:

    The seesaw is fantastic for balance, co-ordination, core strength and proprioceptive feedback.

    I like to use it for daily development of balance skills and muscle strengthening.

    Classic play equipment in a unique new design. Pliable synthetic rubber domes on the underside of the seesaw provide a softer, more dynamic movement. The seesaw has a non slip surface.

    The base of the pivot is covered with synthtic rubber to reduce the risk of crushing and to prevent damage to the floor. Maximum load 75kg Made of plastic with a synthetic rubber cushioning.

    Top

    Wonderful giant top for hours of fun


    Jo Says:

    This is great for gross motor skills, core strength and vestibular input. Rock it from side to side or spin in it. Depending on the needs of the child it can have a calming or alerting effect.

    I find it especially helpful to use it just before lessons start or as a movement break part way through the lesson. It helps stop the fidgets and can be really beneficial for concentration.

    Product description:

    Top for 1 or 2 children. Lots of uses: use it to rock from side to side, spin it, build a den, etc. Small children can even use it as a boat in the pool (only under adult supervision). Develops children’s physical coordination while they play.

    Take a good look at our original top. Only the original top is shaped with a pointed centre. This enables children to get the feeling of turning upside-down when moving the top 360° around the centre. The edge of the top protects children’s heads and hands from getting hurt. Raised edges prevent children from getting their fingers caught under the top. And there is no risk of suffocation if children hide inside the top.

    3-10 years.
