The Sensory TheraPLAY subscription box is great for kids with sensory needs at home. Check out our unboxing video, and what’s in our box.
We have multiple calm down corners in our house. Just recently, in the midst of one of my 6 year old’s emotional outbursts, we went to his calm down area in his room and sat together. I pulled out some of the sensory toys in his basket to hand to him and realized that the calming tools had been there since he was 3.
A bit of novelty in his sensory tools would probably go a long way.
But, that can get overwhelming and expensive to try out a bunch of new tools constantly.
We recently had the opportunity to check out the Sensory TheraPLAY Box and have given our calm down area a bit of an update! Check out the video below to see what’s inside the February box – and how my sensory seeker ranks and recommends the items!

A Calm Down Corner Refresh with the Sensory TheraPLAY Box
The Sensory TheraPLAY box is full of toys that bring a smile to your child’s face, delivered to your door monthly. Included are wonderful items to help your child self regulate…or simply for fun therapeutic play!
My 6 year old currently attends OT and leaves each week telling me about something new he discovered and needs to have. This is such a fun way to satisfy his desire for new sensory input – and makes his sensory-seeking tendencies positive for him.
Check out the video below to see what was in our box!
We use sensory toys for a number of reasons in our home. Our calm down corner is a prime spot for sensory and calm down tools, and these have been really useful for helping with some of the physical needs that my son experiences when angry.
Additionally, we keep a basket of sensory tools next to my son’s bed. These help him decompress before bed, and also allow him to fidget during his reading time at night. Tools such as fidget spinners, squish balls and chew necklaces help him have a physical outlet that allow for greater focus (and less boredom) while laying and reading.
This box included:
- a stuffed toy that can be heated or cooled in the microwave/refrigerator
- Aaron’s Thinking Putty
- zipper bracelets (our favorite item)
- a super squishy owl stress ball
- a spiky sensory toy
- the rainbow twirler (super cool)
- seamless socks
Check out the Sensory TheraPLAY Box and give your calm down corner a refresh as well!
