We can’t say enough good things about the Tranquil Turtle and Starfish. This is one of our top selling gift items and everyone at National Autism Resources loves it. One of our customers sent in the picture of her son engaged with the turtle. Turn it on in a darkened room and it instantly makes the whole room look like water is rippling across the walls and ceiling. You can turn on soothing wave sounds or gentle music to add to the tranquility. The pictures don’t do this product justice!
Watch shooting stars and a floating crab nebula from your living room couch! The laser stars turns any room into an amazing night sky. The short video clip below gives you a glimpse of what this constellation projector can do. This a great gift for kids and teens!
We love living sand because unlike play dough it never dries out! This unique tactile activity is great for sensory seekers. You can use tools similar to the kind you would use with play dough. The large size set comes with it’s own play container and five pounds of sand. This provides more than enough sand for two kids to play with at a time. A smaller version is also available and includes one and a half pounds of sand.
The Strobotop has been a top seller two years in a row! This highly visual top features a variety of discs that turn into animations when you spin them and shine a strobe light on them. Color your own discs are included so you can make your own animations. Watch the video below to learn more.
This economical visual lamp is perfect for your calming area or room. It’s gently lit with LED lights and the rhythmic motion of the lava beads is mesmerizing.
You will love listening to the sound of rain while watching silver beads cascade down a clear tube. This item is a best seller for teachers and therapists.
The Tangle Relax is our favorite fidget. This quiet fidget toy is covered with textured rubber. It keeps fingers active, is quiet, and is very interesting to touch. This item can break apart and be reconnected. You can turn it into two mini fidgets or reassemble it into different color combinations.
Gentle vibrations are calming and provide nice tactile input. We love that these massagers are animal themed and kid friendly!
Turn this timer over and watch colored drops of liquid gently float to the bottom. This simple item makes a great travel toy or a calm down companion to gaze at during stressful moments.
This fun octopus features super tactile tentacles and a big round squishy body. Great for squeezing and squishing!
