Here’s Why They’re Awesome

A pillow filled with charcoal micro bio foam beads is much more than just a comfy, squishy pillow. They provide a ton of benefits, including tactile therapy, sound therapy, and weight, as well as benefits for sensory seekers and daycare.

Here’s Why They’re Awesome - Tactile Therapy
Tactile Therapy

Anything that we touch, or that touches us, can be stimulating. Everything has a texture, temperature, shape, and more. The sense of touch also includes the differentiation and recognition of temperature, pain, and body position. Children and adults benefit from touching a variety of textures and play with them to develop normal tactile processing. Messy items such as play-doh and foam make alternative strategies for telling a story, expressing feelings, and more.

A Therapeutic Sensory Pillow provides just that! Microsize bio foam beads are easy to manipulate, encourages finger movement and dexterity. Fold & press, pinch & roll, and smooth & shake for satisfying fidgeting relief! Indulge your hands and fingers through millions of beads for ultimate calming and relaxation experience. Relaxing tactile therapy can help relax you, calm your nerves, and get you to sleep.

Sound Therapy

In our Therapeutic Sensory Pillow, our foam Beads are lightweight and micro-sized (0.05 inches / 1.5 mm in diameter). The millions of moving beads produce gentle & calming therapeutic sounds. Think of it as your own personal, comfortable sound machine right under your ears! When shifted, the natural vibrational sound is never too loud and aids in aligning the mind and body with the busy mind.

A Therapeutic Sensory Pillow can also work great as a weighted lap pad. For those aged 3 years and up that weigh more than 24 pounds, you can use it as a lap pillow for a quiet sensory exercise to self-soothe, distract busy hands, and focus. Run beads between fingers, squeeze, hold, or roll them for unique and tactile stimulation.

Does your little one have a tough time falling asleep at daycare? Daycare can be very stimulating, and without the proper tools for relaxation, your child can be missing out on some much-needed shut-eye. Kids can fall asleep quicker and get better relaxation as they calm & soothe themselves to sleep with a therapeutic sensory pillow.

Our Milo and Gabby Sensory Pillow is the perfect therapeutic sensory pillow! It is sized just right, weighted perfectly for kids, easy to manipulate, and easy to clean. Here are some more reasons our pillow is so awesome:

  • Perfect for year-round relaxation. This triple-layer pillow is double-stitched and encapsulates over a million bio foam beads. The uniquely-designed sensory pillow is cool to the touch, breathable, and antimicrobial. A combination of 3D Air Mesh, Tencel fabric, and bio beads prevents the pillow from overheating even during the warm season, thanks to its cooling and breathable properties. 
  • Wicks away moisture. Tencel fabric naturally wicks away moisture, while bio foam beads allow extra ventilation to keep the pillow odorless and quick to dry, making it ideal for therapeutic use. 
  • Hypoallergenic fabric and beads. Tencel by Lanzing is naturally hypoallergenic, mite-resistant, and breathable. Derived from the eucalyptus tree, Tencel offers natural remedial properties that significantly reduce the use of pesticides and water to manufacture and are known to be a safer alternative to cotton and other man-made fabrics. Lightweight bio-foam beads are BPA- and Lead-free and infused with charcoal, a natural property that purifies the air and repels odor and bugs.
