General Information


sensory integration weighted toys

sensory integration weighted toys focus on touch, inner ear senses, and muscular senses.  One great toy that meets all these needs includes swinging toys, more specifically, sensory swings.  First, the swing materials, whether light fabric or weighted metal provide the need for touch.  Second, the swinging motion increases recognition of space, balance and movement that all are derived from the inner ear.  Third, the muscles, ligaments and joints needed to create the swinging movement integrate this part of the body group to further increase sensory awareness.

Thus, swinging toys fulfill the three criteria for sensory integration weighted toys.  You can find these swings in a variety of styles here.
