    The Body Sock provides resistance for a deep pressure sensation (great for those that like the feeling of a hug, but no physical contact is required) and will enable the user to move around differently and help with body awareness (balance and movement).

    Here are a few fun things to do with a body sock :

    - Get your whole body inside the body sock and fully stretch out your arms or legs or both! You can try doing this whilst standing, sitting or lying down. 

    - Try balancing on one foot whilst you feel the resistance of the sock around you.

    - Try the body sock as part of a calming down activity - get inside, push gently against the fabric until you can feel the resistance and enjoy the deep pressure sensation. Pull the sock around you in a hug.

     -Try out your favourite yoga pose!

    - Whilst inside the sock, lie on your back and squeeze your knees up to your chest, wrapping your arms around them - then push up and out with your hands, arms, legs and feet - releasing all of your tension at the same time. "POP"!!

    - Try rolling around with your arms tucked in and your legs stretched out (like you do when rolling down a grass slope).

    - Whilst lying on the floor (side, back or tummy) - try making the shapes of the letters to spell out your name! 

    - With a friend sit facing each other, take it in turns to copy the movements of the other - see how many silly poses and shapes you can make! :) 

    * Safety: For all activities involving a body sock, adult supervision is recommended. The area you play in must be clear and safe to use. Ideally, the user will want to keep their head and neck outside of the body sock, but when the user chooses to put their head inside, they must have someone with them to assist if needed. 

    Available in 3 sizes:

    • Small Body sock:     100cm long x 60cm wide (opening 60cm) - suitable for children 1.0 m to 1.25m tall
    • Medium Body sock:  120cm long x 70cm (opening 65cm) - suitable for children 1.2m to 1.45m tall
    • Large Body sock:     150cm long x 75cm wide (opening 70cm) - suitable for children 1.5m to 1.75m tall
