Sensory Snake – a sensory calming toy
He is designed to help your child when overwhelmed or anxious. This often shows as hyperactivity and meltdowns. The Sensory Snake will help your child to calm down, be comforted and regain focus.
The weight applies deep pressure stimulation and will help your child decrease anxiety and increase calmness.
Your child can wrap themselves and snuggle into the weight. The Snake is great for use after school time coming home and transitioning from a highly stimulation environment.
Sensory Snake is a super soothing and weighted sensory toy designed to encourage self-regulation at any time of the day or night. This tactile toy is the ideal companion for anxious and over-stimulated minds, providing moments of calm and focus to process tumultuous thoughts and feelings.
Wrapped around your child for a happy hug, the Sensory Snake provides proprioceptive input to the brain to reduce stress and hyperactivity, similar to a weighted blanket. This releases the happy hormones, serotonin and dopamine while reducing levels of the stress hormone, cortisol.
A gentle giant for moments of serious stillness.
Sensory Snake's super power is as a soothing intervention to cope with transition from one situation or event to another, such as the transition between coming home from school to preparing for bedtime. When a child is overstimulated and can’t calm down, Sensory Snake slithers and soothes and can then be cuddled to sleep.

How deep pressure therapy help
The Weighted Toy Snake applies deep pressure stimulation and help increase calmness and decrease the feelings of anxiety.
Deep Pressure Stimulation (DPS) is firm but gentle squeezing, hugs, or holding that relaxes the nervous system. This pressure can be applied with the hands, special massage tools, or products that your child can wear or wrap around themselves to provide pressure.
This therapy can trigger a chain reaction in the body that releases an overall sense of calm and peace.
