General info on Tangles


Tangles, the ultimate universal playthings, feature a series of 90 degree curves interconnected to pivot 180 degrees at each joint. Just as a Tangle has no beginning and no end, there is no end to the pure delight children and adults alike experience when turning, twisting, bending, and coiling a Tangle. Lightweight and portable, Tangles are the pinnacle of take-along stress relievers.

Teachers who use Tangles as a reward for children with autism report improved behavior: increased calm and the ability to cope with stressors that usually send them "over the edge" as well as an increase in skill acquisition. Tangles invite manipulation and reward play with improved concentration, spatial relations, and problem solving skills. Try a variety of Tangles for their different sizes, colors, and textures.

ColorSENSEation

Dawn Smiddy, an instructor at Arizona School for the Deaf and Blind, points out that "Color is a concept. We associate color with memories and senses other than just sight. This is why the concept of color is not perceived the same from person to person. Understanding this as a concept, allows the artist to embark on an exploration into color that is not only useful in the everyday life of the visually impaired artist, but a lot of fun! So allow yourself to enjoy learning and exploring the art of painting. There are no rules that apply to color choices, so experiment. In art, it is moreover about process, NOT the finished product. Challenge yourself with each stroke of the brush!"

ColorSENSEation books feature 12 raised line drawings perfect for use with crayons, markers, watercolor or tempera paints. Each spiral-bound book includes the printed word and Braille for each design, along with a plastic page protector. Raised line drawings are ideal for the visually impaired as well as for those working to improve fine motor skills or who simply learn best through touch. Raised lines enhance spatial awareness and give structure. Beneficial to children and adults.

PlayAbility Factors: visual stimulation, tactile stimulation, spatial awareness, eye-hand coordination, cognitive and fine motor skill development, social engagement, color concept and Braille awareness.

3" Boing Magic Light Ball

WARNING: CHOKING HAZARD - Small parts. Not for children under three-years-old
Boing Magic Light Ball is a multi-sensory delight. Ribbed outer shell invites touch and tactile exploration. Running thumb or fingers across the ribs produces an audible response. Boing changes color with a squeeze of the hand, moving from off to blue, green, red, purple, cyan, yellow, and white before reaching a slow, then a fast color changing sequence. Each squeeze also produces an audible click. Measures three inches in diameter and weighs less than four ounces. Phthalate and latex free. Outer shell removes for gentle washing with soap and water. When thoroughly dry, a light dusting with talcum powder restores its original, silky feel. Includes three replaceable AAA batteries. Boing is not designed to be bounced, dropped or thrown against hard surfaces as these actions could damage the electronic components.

XaXa

XaXa, pronounced Ksa-Ksa, re-defines what a ball can be while inviting exploration, encouraging creativity, and challenging adults and children to explore what's possible. Made with a polycarbonate core and a removable TPR 100% phthalate and latex-free skin, this lightweight 2 3/4" ball weighs only 2 2/3 ounces empty. The core is an inner ball that pulls apart to reveal a hollow center. Fill XaXa with different objects in varying amounts to change the sound or weight. What comes to mind~ball bearings, coins, rice? These are only a beginning. XaXa comes in primary color combinations: yellow/cyan, cyan/magenta, and magenta/yellow. Explore, mix and match colors. The smooth, super elastic skin features raised rim circular cut-outs and offers textural contrast to the bumpy, hard, rigid core. Both core and skin encourage play together and separately. Together they roll, separately the core rolls, the skin bounces, and that's only for starters.

Xa, as the elastic skin is called, has unique features that inspire creativity and active outdoor fun. Push a balloon through an opening in the skin, blow up the balloon, tie off the stem and tuck the end under the skin, and you have an altogether new toy. Filling the balloon with water creates another. Stuffing Xa with a sponge, and wetting the sponge is yet another.

Teachers of the blind and visually impaired will find XaXa a versatile toy as they explore similarities and differences with their charges. Tactile differences and the ability to vary its sound and weight makes XaXa a must have in any toy bag.
