Sensory Support – Weighted Turtle


Research suggests that children with sensory processing difficulties may benefit from play with weighted toys. Weighted toys provide comfort through firm but gentle pressure known as ‘deep pressure touch’, providing soothing sensory feedback that can have a calming effect. A weighted comfort toy can help settle a restless or anxious child, gently easing anxiety and distress as the weight provides support and the child becomes aware of the heaviness anchoring them. The soft features of the toy are friendly, reassuring and tactile.

This beautiful turtle with his patchwork shell and lovely textures is approx. 55cm long and weighs 2kg. Made from up-cycled fabrics so variations to be expected.

Made to order, please allow 1 – 2 weeks.
