Mirrors are the ideal medium for self discovery. Ideal for exploring body, face, expression, gesture; your own and those beside you. Shimmering, shifting, diffracting and glancing, mirrors stimulate curiosity and can provide a source of wonder through Illusions of never-ending depth and the scattering of lights. They add a whole new dimension to a space, or simply focus a one- to-one moment.

Auditory processing disorder (APD) or Auditory Hypersensitivity can affect people of all ages, but it often starts in childhood. It can affect your ability to understand speech, distinguish sounds, and concentrate around background noise.

We provide a wide range of fun auditory toys to help explore and develop this important sense.

Look out for our Resonance selection which magnifies the vibration inherent in sound, enabling us to feel as well as hear sounds.

Kibo | Auditory

Kibo Truly overcoming obstacles through play TFH are proud to present Kibo. So many electronic toys create annoying bleeps, while musical instruments require a trained operator. Kibo is a musical instrument designed to be played with like a toy. A true fusion of technology, musicology and fun. Kibo is light, tough and cutting edge technology from Italy. Engagingly simple, but fiendishly complex under the hood, Kibo presents 3 forms of music composition to the user through its 8 chunky wooden blocks. These lovely tactile shapes stack magnetically and snap into place on the smooth board pleasingly, and that’s when the magic begins. Tap the blocks to play 40 different instruments ( just turn the knob to change) in mode one - the harder you tap, the louder they play (it’s a musical instrument). Build complex compositions by adding and removing the blocks in mode two - the lower 4 blocks build a bassline, the upper 4 build the harmony. Mode 3 is a combo mode, the top row builds up a melody, while the bottom row allows you to tap out an accompanying beat. Battery powered (~40 hours, recharges like a phone). Rechargeable Battery (inc). • 30 x 23 x 2cm 6KIBO

Kibo is of course Bluetooth- driven via app on an iPad (not included). The App (kodaly) is free to download & requires no musical training. Kibo is a true MIDI controller and can therefore be integrated into other (more complex) apps like Garage Band, Beat maker and Ableton. Some of these apps are free and quite easy to get into, we hope that while Kibo is engaging and educating to play, it will also be a gateway to the truly exciting world of music technology. Play up to 7 Kibos in a group from a single iPad (update in 2021 to allow remote online groups). This multiplayer feature is so simple to set up and use its “gold dust”). Kibo requires an ipad or iPhone, headphones or a powered speaker for a performance.

Resonance | Auditory

Echo Chamber Sitting on this simple pliant platform is popular because it creates a dished surface on which things roll towards you, and any noise it makes rolling toward you resonates through your body. It will also resonate your voice back to you if you lie on it. • 120 x 120 x 10cm 9RSEC

Typically we think of music as being ‘heard’ by the ear, our most sensitive organ to the vibrations in the air. When the notes are very deep we also feel them with our body. Such vibration is the basis of Vibroacoustic therapy. The TFH Resonance Range magnifies musical vibrations so they are felt more easily. All Resonance items require an Amp, our Resonator Amp is perfect, the Resonator Plus is even better.

Welcome to the TACTILE chapter!

Our skin is our largest sensory organ. Tickling labels and unfamiliar fabrics can be annoying, and particularly for those who are tactile sensitive. We believe that exposure to new textures can be fun and that through controlled tactile play we can widen our senses and reduce unpleasant experiences.

Messy play is the ultimate tactile challenge and well worth the effort.

Tactile | Sand &Water

Water: The most abundant substance on Earth and the source of all life is central to human existence, washing both bodies and souls (according to ALL religions). Water is weird: it’s an incompressible supercritical fluid, that is amphoteric and self- ionizates. Solid water floats on its liquid form (essential for life on earth), but perhaps oddest of all... water is both safe and fun. So children should study it and they love to play with it.

Develop your understanding of PROPRIOCEPTION in this chapter.

Proprioception makes up a large part of sensory therapy. But, what is it and how does it work? Proprioception is, essentially, an awareness of one’s own body; its movement, balance and how all parts relate to one another. Products in this section have been chosen for their ability to help with the concept of body awareness. Any product that encourages reaching, or helps with positioning or balance will also have this benefit.

Weighted products can help us get back in control of our senses. The very real application of weight increases stillness, calmness. Feel the comfort and sense of security that can be afforded by the hug of a weighted blanket, scarf, belt or snake.

8LB Weighted Blanket and Minky Dot Cover Our weighted Blankets are filled with silicone beads.Silicone beads are very dense so our blankets are thin for their weight. Our beads are very small so they do not feel or sound granular (reducing tactile and auditory stimulation) leading to a better night’s sleep.Choose from 4 weights - the general consensus is that the blanket should weigh about 10% of the user’s own weight.There are 8 edge loops connecting the inner (which can be washed) to the luxurious cover which is much easier to wash. 3.6kg. • 150 x 100cm 4WTMD8 12lb Weighted Blanket and Minky Dot Cover 5.4kg. • 150 x 100cm 4WTMD12 18lb Weighted Blanket and Minky Dot Cover 8.2kg. • 150 x 100cm 4WTMD18 NEW 20lb Weighted Blanket and Minky Dot Cover 9kgs. • 150 x 100cm 4WTMD20

Squash | Proprioception

From being wrapped in swaddling blanket, to being tucked in at bedtime – “Sleep tight!” – to pulling a top tight around shoulders against a dark evening, there is something inherently comforting and calming about being tightly wrapped. Think of it like white noise or a blank canvas for your proprioceptive sense. Weighted products employ ‘Deep Pressure Touch Stimulation’, steady proprioceptive stimulation that balances other sensory “noise”, reducing distraction and the craving to self-stimulate.

Ball Blanket Our deeply calming Ball Blanket has no seams and is made from in hospital-grade bedding material. Very easy to thoroughly clean. • 126 x 66cm 6BLBL

The VESTIBULAR sense is a key element in sensory integration therapy.

Children and adults who are sensory challenged will often use toys that spin or bounce to stimulate their vestibular system - or their inner ear. The inner ear helps with balance and lets the body know when, and how fast, it is moving. Some of our favourite vestibular activities involve playground accessories such as swings, trampolines, bouncers, and rockers. These recreational activities are self-paced and fun, making them ideal for both stimulating the under-responsive child and calming for the over-responsive or sensory seeking child.
