Special Needs Toys Melbourne
Special Needs Toys, Weighted Blankets, and Sensory Toys in Melbourne
As most special needs parents, teachers and therapists know, these children have specific needs and requirements. Therefore, when purchasing special needs toys in Melbourne, we should look beyond the typical choices for toys, accessories, and other fun things that children without special needs might prefer. This is not to say that they might not also enjoy more mainstream products sometimes as well, but we need to keep their specific set of needs in mind. At Sensory Tools®, we concentrate on and sell tools, not toys. However, our tools are quite enjoyable for children, and so you might think of them as sensory toys. We understand that special needs children also have special gifts and we love seeing them develop their distinct talents and abilities. We make it easy for you to find the products and resources that you need. We offer affordable prices, fast shipping, and secure online ordering - shopping with us is easy.

Weighted Blanket Options in Melbourne
Weighted blankets and other weighted products are one example of our quality products. Research has shown that weighted blankets help children (and adults) deal with anxiety, stress, and sensory disorders, as well autism and related issues. Deep Touch Pressure (DTP) is the scientific term for the benefits that weighted blankets and other weighted products offer. Benefits of Deep Touch Pressure occur whenever there is gentle, distributed weight. Hugging is one example of Deep Touch Pressure, and a weighted blanket provides a feeling similar to being hugged. It’s soothing and comforting.
These wonderful blankets can be particularly beneficial to children with autism in improving relaxation and sleep patterns. It has been shown that they may increase the production of serotonin, a chemical that helps regulate mood and allows for relaxation. Because autistic children tend to be low on serotonin, weighted products are particularly beneficial to them. Serotonin is also necessary for the creation of melatonin. Melatonin is the chemical that indicates to the body that it’s time to sleep. Therefore, it’s no wonder that autistic children, as well as children and adults who suffer from anxiety, stress, and sensory disorders, benefit so much from weighted products.
