Is your child sensitive to or overwhelmed by different sensory inputs? Do they seek out sensory stimulation throughout the day? Has a therapist or other professional suggested your child would benefit from fidgets, weighted clothing, or other sensory soothing tools?

This book includes instructions for more than 30 projects. They range from simple tools that can be assembled in minutes to weekend endeavors where you can invest your time and love. The book also includes information about each sensory system and ways to modify the projects to meet individual needs.

Super Toys in real life

Last Saturday I had a table at a small craft fair to advertise the book and our Kickstarter. The show traffic was a bit slow but it was still a great opportunity to see kids interacting with the toys.

We had supplies to allow guests to make a Calming Bottle or a Gel Bag. I expected the Calming Bottles to go quick but in fact the Gel Bags were more popular. I let the kids squeeze in the Gel then add glitter, sequins and food coloring before sealing it up with patterned duct tape.
We got a few small donations toward the book and one visitor went ahead and pre-ordered the book on Kickstarter. It's been neat seeing how this project is received by the public--so much positive feedback. Only 9 days left on Kickstarter then it's back to spending my evenings editing book text rather than messaging Kickstarter backers. I have a good life.
