We pride ourselves in our customer service and one of our services is to help source items that are not readily available, your personal shopper! We are a small team who go the extra mile and understand what it is to be a parent/carer.

Bedtime – as well as our range of sleepwear we supply beds, bedding, and weighted blankets to help everyone get a good night’s sleep.
Sensory aids and toys – all the sensory toys and aids that we supply have been carefully selected to ensure that they do meet at least one of the sensory needs. We provide small items such as fidget toys, learning aids ideal for school and helping with concentration, activity sets to help the children be active and have fun such as dance and sports kits suitable for all. We can supply everything to kit out a sensory room or dark den in a home through to larger areas in schools, community hubs and hospitals. Not forgetting our range of outdoor items.
We don’t just offer sensory toys, other aids include LusioMATE which is a physical therapy system using sensors and an app, furniture, a large selection of communication aids, sensory lights, and aromatherapy diffuser to help calm through the sense of smell.
