Default Building our sensory gym...

we've been working on collecting things for a sensory gym for tooter to supplement his brushing protocol and joint compressions...i got tired of waiting and needed more room, so i sold the dining table (we eat at the bar). this is where we are with it now. the only things missing is a mini-trampoline with a bar and a sensory ball. i have the ball but it needs to be inflated, and i would like a stabilizing base for it...




this is the tent and tunnel we got from ikea. the tent is roomy and it was fairly cheap but i think it is not as well made as the tunnel. the tunnel will last us a long time. it does compress back into a ring and tie down for better storage. the doorway is a great alternative to a playhouse for imaginative play.



i highly recommend the spinning chair from ikea. it is really well made and he has responded beautifully to it. the hood folds all the way down, but he prefers to have a scarf or something to watch it flutter during spinning. (that is a tie dyed flat we got from jenn).

thanks! the chair is the coolest thing ever.period. it has a series of double row rollers that allow for the best spinning possible! too cool! sometimes he just sits with the hood all the way down and plays with his animals or listens to his head phones for some quiet time.

That is awesome! We've been considering a chair like that-but I hadn't seen the IKEA ones! I think we'll have to do that. One of my DDs craves spinning, so that would be perfect for her! I think they have swings, too, right? My other DD it's the forward/back from a swing that grounds and centers her.

I love the idea of having a sensory gym in the home! Great job!

We love those chairs. Garret's therapy center has 2 of those and the kids go right to them.

Your gym looks great and I think he will have lots of great times in there.

thanks! ikea does have swings and rings and other items for sensory stimulation. i want a set of rings. tooter doesn't like swinging, but he loves to hang by things, so the rings would be a nice addition. we'll have to get a builder out though to see if they can find a stud for installation in the ceiling.

Here is the chair. Unfortunately, you can't order this one on the internet. It is really heavy to balance while the child is spinning and I bet shipping would be outrageous. My book rec. getting a sit n' spin. If they still made them like they did when I was little, I would get one in a heartbeat. As it stands, I don't think the new ones would last 10 minutes in my wild house, so I went with the chair. As this is an exclusive Ikea product, I don't think you can get it anywhere else, but another company may make something similar!

I have the cocoon swing from ikea... the rings are interchangeable and use the same mount. My dad found the ceiling joists very quickly and it's solid as a rock!!
your home gym looks great!

I think I want to get a chair like that for DD.... She is VERY into "hiding" and it would sure beat blankets strung across lines in her bedroom.

That looks great. I just popped in though to let you know that I saw one of those small trampolines with the attachable bar(work out trampoline) at our Wal-Mart. They were clearancing stuff out...it was only 15$. Just saw you still wanted to get one. HTH.
