  • Help naturally calm the body, reduce stress and assist with sleep.

    The weight from the Harkla Weighted Blanket helps by regulating the nervous system, through proprioceptive input.  It encourages calm.  It is like receiving a big hug!  

    These weighted blankets are ideal for situations that are often stressful, for sensory seekers in the classroom or in the car.  They can also be used on the lounge or bed at home.

    Deep touch pressure helps the body release serotonin.  Serotonin is an important chemical when it comes to feeling calm and assisting with mood stability. Not only does the release of serotonin help a person feel calmer, but serotonin is needed to create melatonin in the body.  And Melotonin is a chemical that your body uses to tell itself that it's time for sleep.

    Please note, the blanket is not the size of a single bed doona.  It is designed specifically  for a person to easily carry around and to wrap themselves in.  It is more like the size of the top of a single bed mattress (but not quite as long).  The weight and size of this could also suit a teen or smaller adult.

    There may be 2 colour options depending on availability from supplier:

    * blue/green  * dark grey/light grey

    Please send an email if you would prefer a particular colour and we can let you know what is available.

    The Harkla Weighted Blanket is designed with families, practicality and calming purpose in mind.

    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!
