Finally,we have a fun way to provide the sensory input that some children need to calm their systems while promoting creative play., provides resources for therapeutic play and education, Children three years old and up can dress up as a fairy princess, ballerina, fireman or policeman in a vest or costume designed with inner pockets to hold optional bean bag weights. 

In my many years working as a speech language therapist in the schools, I was often in meetings where weighted vests were recommended for children with sensory issues. Parents were very reluctant to agree to using a garment on their children that would point them out as “different.” I don’t blame them. I knew the benefits a weighted vest could afford but couldn’t push something that the parents were uncomfortable with.

These costumes and vests offer a wonderful inclusive alternative that hopefully all of the kids will get in line to use!
