Hi its me again. I’ve had the chance to play with some more products from Rompa and Winslow.
The first couple of products were the ‘Soothersack‘ and the ‘huggabuddies cat‘. I loved the cat and so did my son. Not only does is it quite heavy so it provides pressure, the soft fur is also a nice sensory experience.
The Soothersack is your standard pillow which you warm in the microwave and then can place on certain parts of your body to relieve aches and pains or across a child’s knees again to help ground them. Essential oils can be added to the pillow to help with relaxation. The ‘huggabuddies’ cat was a lot better for me as I sat with it snuggled on my shoulder with the heat going where I wanted it too whereas the pillow, as I’m sure many of you know, loses its filling to either end of the pillow so there was no heat on the top of my shoulder where I wanted it.
These two pieces of kit are nice to help your child but also nice to have around for when you might (if miracles occur) get 10 minutes relaxation to yourself!
I would give them both 3 stars.
Another product which I looked at was the ‘Tangle Therapy’ toy. Again, a product which I’m sure many of you will have come across. I particularly liked this version as it was a bit larger than others I have seen. It is not recommended for children under 3 as the pieces can be separated and potentially swallowed, but with older children I have found they enjoy taking the tangle toys to pieces as it provides a nice clicking noise! Some of the sections also had a clear rubber coating with small raised bobbles. I did wonder if these would get picked off over time though.
On the whole I felt this deserved 4 stars
