By combining an extremely soft texture, a small amount of weight, and an adorable animal face, The Sensory University has created a system that will instantly become your sensory-seeking child’s best friend.

Sensory Square Pet from The Sensory University

Sensory Square Pets each weigh 1.5 lbs and each one is constructed from a velour material that is certain to keep your child's attention.

By combining an extremely soft texture, a small amount of weight, and an adorable animal face, The Sensory University has created a system that will instantly become your sensory-seeking child’s best friend. The sensory square is perfect for children who would normally fidget with clothes, tags, hair, or just have the constant need for sensory input.

By adding a small amount of weight this product offers the grounding sensation needed to keep kids still, but not so much weight that carrying this product becomes exhausting.

Sensory Square Pets are an excellent addition to your child's daily therapy, and your child’s weighted product collection. The 13x13x13 "pets" are handwashable.
