Award Winning Vibration Pillows on Sale

Celebration Sale!

The Vibration Pillow has won the
2014 Product of the Year Award

The vibration pillows are an excellent tool for helping to calm children that tend to wander or lose focus easily.

About the Award:

Creative Child Magazine's Awards Program is unique in that all products submitted are reviewed by moms, music educators and early education professionals. Products are not reviewed by any one person. They are reviewed by many people-the very people who purchase them."

When a child pressed or sits on the vibrating cushion, an internal vibration unit is activated.

Kids (and adults!) enjoy the soothing movement and it helps to calm them.

They will then stay in one place so that they can continue the motion. Now that they're not moving around so much, they can focus on the activity at hand.

The pillows come in different colors, shapes and textures, allowing you to also use them as tactile training tools as well.

For schools, organizations and child-friendly businesses, consider the value pack - a set of all the different styles, along with an extra vibration unit.

For therapists that want to provide a more direct tactile stimulus, you can also order the vibration unit on its own.

Kids love them!

To celebrate the 2014 Product of the Year Award, you will get an automatic 10% discount when you buy any of the Senseez Vibration Pillows and Vibration Units. Sale ends August 31st, 2014
