Afew weeks ago I saw this Wiggle Seat up for review on Tomoson. It was also a free, just for product review, which I don't usually do, but I don't know.... When I saw this, the whole concept just kind of amazed me so I didn't even hesitate to click that apply button. It was the first time seeing such a thing and if it really does what it says... Omg totally worth the blog shoutout.
Wiggle seats have become popular with teachers and parents alike for their ability to calm the hyperactive child. Many parents have found wiggle seats to be a life saver during dinner and homework time. While teachers love them for the calming effect they can have on children, many even report improved behavior for ADHD and autistic children.
Besides the positive effects on behavior these discs have all the same benefits of sitting on a balance ball, activating the stomach muscles while sitting leading to better posture and less back strain from prolonged sitting.
If this sounds like what you are looking for, the Wiggle Seat by Sensory Solutions is a cost effective answer to your needs. It is easy to change the inflation level with any ball or tire pump, personalizing it to the needs of your child. One side has small bumps while the other side has longer raised nubs allowing you the flexibility to choose for your child's tactile needs.
- Adjustable inflation level with included pump
- 13" x 13" x 3" size perfect for a small child's seat, while being big enough to grow with your child
- Activates intrinsic trunk muscles to encourage active sitting and support the spine
- Helps keep your child calm and focused during school or meal time
Hehehe... Pardon the pajamas, non-staged pics, this is as real as you can get for such a review.
When the mailman delivered the package early one morning, I instantly opened it up and gave it to my daughter. And this is what she did with it... Literally laid on the thing all morning like it was some strange, spikey yoga ball. At one point she was even using it as a pillow, but by the time I grabbed my phone to snap a pic, she had changed positions lol....I instantly thought to myself OMG! Of course the one time I take a freebie review, it's going to be a total bust! But boy was I wrong!
Anyway, her speech teacher used the iPad to kind of bribe Haylie to use the seat correctly and bingo! Now my daughter uses it correctly and I wouldn't say it's a miracle worker, but totally worth every penny! My child definitely focuses better using it. And will sit in one spot for longer periods of time. Which was exactly what I was hoping for!
My daughter just had her very last day of early intervention yesterday, and the past few weeks were probably way more successful because of the use of this seat. Wish I would of discovered it along time ago instead of the last month of services ever lol.
