Options - Set of 5 - Colourful Caterpillars

These are soft, squishy, tactile and brightly coloured Caterpillars that glow vividly under a UV light. They are a great favourite as a fidget toy for people of all ages and abilities.

The Caterpillars are air filled and can be squeezed, stretched, twisted and bent in different ways. They provide sensory stimulation and feedback for people who have sensory processing issues. Sensory toys for special needs can help with attention, self-regulation and behavioural organisation.

Some of the therapeutic benefits of the Caterpillars are:

• They can improve fine motor skills and hand strength by manipulating the Caterpillars

• They can enhance tactile awareness and discrimination by feeling the different textures and shapes of the Caterpillars

• They can foster emotional regulation and sensory modulation by providing calming or alerting input depending on the pressure and speed of the Caterpillars

• They can promote social skills such as turn-taking, cooperation and communication by playing with others

• They can support visual perception and tracking by observing the colours and movement of the Caterpillars under a UV light

The Caterpillars are suitable sensory toys for 2 year olds and older. They are also ideal for sensory gifts or sensory items for home, school or clinic use.
