[AD – Gifted] This post contains gifted item(s).
Since the start of 2021, I’ve realised that my anxiety has increased and my stress levels have shot up with the ongoing lockdown and uncertainty about the future. However, a chat with a family member and a special delivery of sensory fidget toys from Learning Resources has put me back in touch with the present and made me realise the importance of conscious living again.
The sensory fidget toy kit consists of eight toys to calm the mind and body, reduce anxiety and stress and aid with practicing quiet focus. Each of the sensory fidget toys offer a unique experience; I received:
- 2 Glow Sticks
- 1 Fidget Tube
- 1 Playfoam Jumbo Pod
- 100 Pieces Link n Learn Chain Link
- 1 Rainbow Coil Spring
- 20 Pieces Snap Together Popcubes
- 1 Globe Stress Ball
- 2 Marbleised Poppers
Whilst this kit has been designed for kids, I think it’s a great tool for adults too! The Globe Stress Ball is particularly great for me when working on the computer for long periods of time, allowing me to vent out some of the built-up tension. The Rainbow Coil Spring and Marbleised Poppers have been brilliant to bring back some nostalgia when looking for some leisure. The Link n Learn Chain Link and Popcubes have been therapeutic and pretty good for keeping my niece occupied too – they both offer many hours of independent play! My niece also enjoyed the Playfoam Jumbo Pod as it provides some fun, colourful sensory play due to its malleable nature. Saving the best til late, the glow sticks, when snapped in half, provide a bright light (better than the ones you can purchase in stores. However, unfortunately they are only one-use and last for 12 hours. Also, the Fidget Tube has been a much needed gadget in my life to aid with relaxation – simply watch the stunning glitter move around upon rotating, making it a soothing view.
With a 4.3 star rating and for £30, I think this sensory fidget toy kit is a must-buy, especially if you are in need of practicing mindfulness. Also, it provides hours of fun for little ones too!
Until next time.
