  • All-Band Loops


    All prices include GST. Please select variations below to see separate item pricing.

    Versatile All-Band is a natural rubber resistive material that's wonderful for proprioceptive activities and strengthening activities. Beyond strengthening activities, you can also use it to pull children on scooter boards, and tied around chair legs as a kicker strip for children who seek movement and proprioception….  An excellent item to have in your bag of goodies! 

    All-Band is now also available in 'loops' giving a more extended range of options for activities, exercises and strategies for use (eg it's easier to wrap around chair legs as a kick band for movement seekers). There are two diameters - 23.5cm and 55cm in six different levels of resistance. Most therapists recommend the yellow theraband for use with children. This provides 'soft grade' resistance. We also carry the next 2 grades - green being 'medium' and red being 'firm'. The price is the same.

    All-Band is 99.9% latex allergen free.

Available in 3 grades of resistance to enable graduated progress.  

    Y-Chew's are made in the USA from medical grade, non-toxic material containing no lead, phthalates, PVC, BPA or latex. As with all chew toys, they're not indestructible and should be replaced when showing signs of wear and tear.

    The soft flowing feel of Magic Waxi gel crayons inspires children to be creative. They glide easily over paper, requiring minimal effort for little hands. This is very encouraging for young children who fatigue quickly with drawing/colouring activities. The new sets are chunkier with a nice thick, tactile grip section, and a range of 12 colours rather than 6.

    You can use Lunables as a highlighter and they won't dry out if you leave their lids off. They won't bleed through paper and are completely water-soluble, so if littlies use them on your walls, clothing and couch... never fear! They will simply wash away with water. 
    The best part is that you can simply twist the bottom of the pen to reveal more of the Magic Waxi. Have fun!

  • Lycra Sensory Swings


    All prices include GST. Please select variations below to see separate item pricing.



    These Lycra Sensory Swings are made of excellent quality, heavy lycra material with strong, secure attachments. The multi-functional swing provides the sensory input children need to calm and organise. It also encourages movement and exercise. As children climb in, stretch out and move around inside the swing, they develop body awareness, balance, motor planning and spatial skills. The stretchy, heavy-duty fabric provides sensory pressure all over and creates a fun, private space to bounce, swing, spin or just lie motionless while enjoying the movement.
    • These swings can be used when sitting, standing or lying down
    • Ideal for all children, including those with low muscle tone, autism, sensory processing disorder and hyperactivity.
    Both swings hang 150cm long (without someone in it), with a 120cm span. The swings come with a carabiner attachment as well as a swivel attachment. The addition of the swivel attachment allows rotatory movement as well as linear movement. Both attachments are approved to hold 300kg. The single lycra swing option is approved to support up to 80kg and the double lycra option is approved to support up to 150kg. They look the same, just the double option has four heavy weight lycra layers rather than two. The swivel attachment is also pictured. We recommend the double layer option for anyone over 40kg as a general guide. We also recommend approximately 2 metres of suspension height to allow for the swing to drop with the weight of the child and to leave space underneath the swing.

    The Gymnic Sit'n'Gym Ball with Feet is made to promote circulation for greater attention and alertness. Ages 3 years and up depending on size  Made of super strong latex-free vinyl material and is surface washable. The Sit' n' Gym ball has little feet to prevent them from rolling away when you stand up.  Widely used in European kindergartens and classrooms, the Sit N Gym encourages dynamic sitting through gentle body movements. This increases the child's attention span and is conducive to better learning. It also promotes an upright body alignment for better posture. Provides all of the ergonomic seating benefits of the regular exercise ball, but stays put when not in use.  While you sit, the feet collapse for maximum instability.  Once you get up, the feet snap back so that the ball remains in one place. Can also be used as a regular exercise ball. This exercise ball with legs provides an economical way to use your ball as a chair with added stability and flexibility.

  • Squigz

    $41.95
    All prices include GST. Please select variations below to see separate item pricing.


    Squigz are fun little suckers! Apply pressure to two Squigz and air rushes out and they connect to each other and to any solid, non-porous surface. Squigz flex. They stick. Once they take hold, it takes some pull to separate them. They are flexible fellows and committed joiners. They assemble to become rockets, vehicles, a cushion for the cat, jewellery, a ginormous octopus or squid. Squigz are scientific sorts - always up for playful experimentation and defying gravity - sticking to bathtubs, windows, tabletops, and desktops. A great resource for developing all sorts of important skills including bilateral skills, fine motor control, and grip strength. Also a good option for children who do well with a fidget to focus, particularly when they like/need/prefer something with some proprioceptive (or push/pull) sensory input.

    The plastic tub of 24 pieces includes eight different shapes made of high quality silicone rubber. Measuring up to 9.5cm L and 3cm wide. Ages 3yrs+

  • The Yoga Garden Game

    $35.50
    All prices include GST. Please select variations below to see separate item pricing.


    The Yoga Garden Game New Edition has 24 YogaKids Pose Cards you are going to love! This delightful game is designed by Jennifer Durand, a San Francisco yoga teacher who specialises in teaching yoga to children.  
    Since many yoga positions are named after animals and objects found in nature, kids can use their imaginations while learning different poses. The objective of the game is to plant a flower garden before night falls. As players move their bumblebee marker around the board they learn classic yoga poses, as well as have the chance to make up their own. 
    Yoga is a highly therapeutic, fun way for children to develop a whole range of skills - balance, postural control, focus, self-regulation just for starters.

    Tummy time is highly recommended for babies from birth to crawling age to help them develop neck, back and arm muscles. The Tumzee can help by:

    * Positioning babies on a slight incline reduces frustration during tummy time, making it a more pleasant experience
    * Allowing the baby to see the surrounding environment and playing with toys while working on fine motor skills
    * The Tumzee has a 'T' support which prevents babies from sliding out. It's made of polypropylene which is soft and comfortable to lay on but firm enough to be stable and supportive.

    Fantastic new product!!

  • Ultra Bear Bottle Kit

    $17.50
    All prices include GST. Please select variations below to see separate item pricing.



    ARK's Ultra Bear Bottle Kit is a fun and friendly way to make drinking easier for beginners and/or children with oral motor difficulties. It's also an excellent way to transition babies straight from bottles to straw drinking - skipping sippy cups altogether! Most sippy cups promote improper tongue and lip positioning that can cause speech problems later on. Straws are a better alternative, as they strengthen the mouth muscles and encourage tongue retraction, cheek tension, and lip closure. 
     
    The Bear Bottle features a unique valve that controls the direction of fluid - liquid flows up into the straw, but does not flow back down. Simply squeeze the bear's belly until fluid reaches the top of the straw and release. Fluid will stay at the top of the straw, thereby decreasing the effort required to drink. Highly recommended for children who tend to aspirate or have a weak suck with difficulties generating and maintaining suction.

    Kit includes: 1 easy-to-squeeze Bear Bottle with a snap-close cap, 1 Select-Flow Valve, 8 inches of polytubing, 1 yellow Lip Blok® (3/4"), and 12 regular drinking straws. Polytubing is a reusable, chewable, durable alternative to traditional straws, and the Lip Blok prevents kids from biting on the straw or putting it too far into their mouths.

    • Made in the USA
    • No BPA, PVC, lead, phthalates, or latex
    • Dishwasher-safe
    • Holds 8 ounces of fluid
    • Bottle measures approximately 2 x 2.5 x 6"
    • Colors may vary
    • Not recommended for carbonated beverages
    • Recommended for thin liquids (water, milk, juice without pulp, etc).  
    • Compatible with most standard .25" diameter straws
