  • Make drinking easier for those with oral motor difficulties

    The Ark Bear Bottle Kit features a unique valve that controls the direction of the fluid. Liquid can flow up the straw but not back down.

    They are also an excellent way to transition babies straight from bottles to straw drinking, skipping sippy cups altogether. Sippy cups can promote improper tongue and lip positioning that may contribute to speech difficulties later on.

    Squeeze the bear's belly until fluid reaches the top of the straw and release. Fluid will stay at the top of the straw so reducing the effort required to drink.  Highly recommended for individuals who tend to aspirate or have a weak suck, or those with difficulties generating and maintaining suction.

    The Ark Bear Bottle Kit includes: 1 easy to use Bear Bottle with snap close cap, 1 select flow valve, 20cm of polytubing, 1 yellow lip block, 2 straws and instructions (on how to teach straw drinking). 

    Polytubing is a reusable, chewable, durable alternative to traditional straws. Lip Bloks prevent kids from biting on the straw or putting it too far into their mouths.

    Ark Bear Bottle Kit Features:

    • Kit includes: Bear bottle, flow valve, 20cm polytubing, yellow Lip Blok, 2 straws
    • Dishwasher safe
    • Bottle measures: 13.5 x 7cm approx
    • Compatible with most 0.625cm straws (0.25")

My son loves his Connetix bought from Starfish. The Connectix helps him with his imagination and hand eye co-ordination.

I love using your products with my NDIS client. I especially find the Coko Alphabet Bricks easy to use and so helpful in promoting literacy learning skills with my client. They also double up as a great playtime activity with my 7 year old granddaughter where we see how many words we can make out of a select few...

Sending a big thank you to the lovely team at Starfish store. I’m located in Melbourne and the lady I spoke to on the phone was more then happy to give her advice regarding noise canceling ear muffs. My 2 year old son, who has sensory issues, couldn’t be more happier! They have given him such comfort in overwhelming...

My daughter is a sensory seeker and seeks oral feedback and stimulation, we’ve purchased the Ark Z Vibe Grabber and instantly my daughter was getting the input she was seeking. The staff at Starfish are extremely helpful and the prompt service and delivery is always appreciated.

We purchased the Lycra swing from Starfish. It’s great quality (thick Lycra), stretchy yet firm, and has enough material for the kids to wrap around themselves. It also takes a lot of weight so can be used for years to come. Definitely great value for money.

My 5 year old nonverbal ASD was overstimulated, we tried our usual deep pressure cuddles and reassurance however it wasn't working. We decided to give the turtle a go, and he loves it he listened to the waves and quickly calmed to the blue wave over our roof within a minute. Thank you, thank you, thank you. I write this...

Absolutely love the Whoozit Water Mat. We got it today and Liam, who doesn’t normally like water, played with it for over half an hour with a huge smile.

We played with the Connetix tiles all afternoon with no TV on (big plus in our house). The best part about it was, I am not the best at actively playing with her and I actually played with her for a decent hour or two because I find them so fascinating! Win win!

I received my LCD writing tablet and I am thrilled. So far it’s been invaluable next to my computer to write things down if needed without wasting or looking for paper. I will take it in my bag wherever I go! Thanks so much Starfish!
