  • Combine tactile and proprioceptive input to provide a relaxing sensory experience

    The wonderful Harkla Hug - Small is a calming, canoe style sensory chair that combines tactile and proprioceptive sensory input to provide a gentle squeeze and deep pressure. Relax in the comfort of your very own, private sensory space.

    Be in control of how much squeeze the Hug provides by inflating the canoe as you desire with the pump provided. How much air you put into you Harkla Hug is up to you. The more you inflate it, the more solid the seat will be, allowing you to adjust the amount of deep pressure received. 

    The Harkla Hug - Small provides deep touch pressure (DTP) to multiple areas of the body, allowing children to feel secure, grounded and in control. We find this is particularly helpful for those with Autism and other sensory processing disorders.

    The floor can be inflated for more wobble and movement. If the floor is not inflated or only partially inflated, the Hug sits firmly and stably on level ground. The outside surface of the Hug is covered in a soft, flocked vinyl making it super comfy and snuggly.

    This Harkla Hug is size Small (121 x 73 x 50cm), recommended for children age 2 to 6yrs and tested to approximately 23kg. Included is an electric pump and patch kit, just in case!

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!
