Grip Strength

Grip strength is fundamental to many activities children love to do, from playing on the monkey bars, to colouring-in, to creating with playdough, as well as being fundamental to many of the activities children need to do, including drawing and writing, managing buttons and cutlery, and doing their teeth! Sometimes children struggle with this and it may be due to generally low muscle tone and/or lax ligaments around the joints which causes instability.

Regardless of the cause, the activities below all provide children with an opportunity to practice and strengthen their hands. They won't even realise they're exercising while they're busy having fun! A golden rule is to make sure their finger and thumb joints are always maintaining some flexion (ie bending, even if just a little bit). If their joints collapse backwards (or over extend) then the activity needs to be modified in some way to make it easier.

  • All-Band (or Theraband)


    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, the firm grades can also be used to pull children on scooter boards, and they can be 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 available in 1.5 metre lengths, in six different levels of resistance. Most therapists recommend the yellow theraband for use with children for general strengthening activities. This provides 'soft grade' resistance. We also carry the next 2 grades, however if you would prefer a higher level of resistance please send us an accompanying email when you order and we will get it in for you. The price is the same.

    All-Band is 99.9% latex allergen free.

  • 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+

  • Tangle Therapy

    $18.50
    All prices include GST. Please select variations below to see separate item pricing.


    Tangle Therapy consists of the classic inter-connected twistable 'tangle' pieces with larger, latex-free rubber coated pieces with distinctive raised tactile nodules to provide a sensory-calming, tactile experience. It encourages repetitive movement patterns which are good, both for fine motor skills, range of motion and strength, as well as the calming sensory aspect. Many people have found children (and adults) with ASD or a sensory processing disorder were calmer and better able to focus when fidgeting with a tangle due to the repetitive movements and tactile input. They are an ideal quiet fidget for at school or when out.

    Made of ABS plastic covered with a soft (latex free) rubberised material. Comes in one colour combination - Blue/Purple/Green. 

    Please note: Choking Hazard. Contains small parts.
