Product Review: I really like this product! Though the button that needs to be pushed in order to activate the vibration is a little difficult to find at first, any child – 3 years and up – can find it, and find it with relative ease. I’m presently using this product with two children with whom I work and they absolutely love it! Both students use the pillow to help them focus and attend for structured activities in class (both are in 1st grade) by placing the pillow on their laps. One simply places the pillow on his lap while the other student utilizes the vibrating feature of the pillow (which provides him with the sensory input he needs to better help reguate his sensory system). What I love about this product is that, when accessing the vibrating feature of the pillow, it makes very little noise, therefore keeping the distraction (i.e. noise) of the vibration to a minimum.
Again, I really like this product! If I were to rate this product - sold only by Achievement Products – I’d give it an A-!
So when your child or student needs a little extra sensory to help him/her get through the day, purchase the Soothing Stars Vibrating Pillow! It’s super cool – and your child or student will love it!
