  • Use lycra attached to the floor for calming deep pressure. So clever.

    The My Burrow - Large Wombat is a completely new and unique way to use lycra to provide calming deep pressure touch. It attaches to the carpet on the floor and means you get fantastic full body pressure.

    Lycra has long been known for the therapeutic effects it offers via deep pressure touch and proprioceptive input in particular. When you push against lycra, it pushes back - giving fabulous input to the receptors in the muscles and joints of the body. It also offers heavy work opportunities and is frequently used in a host of activities - whether it is a body sock, swing, tunnel or even bed sheet.

    My Burrow was developed by a teacher who wanted to offer the benefits of lycra for self regulation and sensory input, in the classroom. The clever patented Burrow design is extremely well made, with wide velcro extends down the 2 opposite sides.  

    Simply place the burrow on carpet and stretch as much as needed before securing.  The tighter the stretch, the more deep pressure will be given. Creep, crawl, slither and slide through the tunnel (burrow).

    The My burrow will provide continuous sensory feedback, heightening attention and helping to reduce anxiety.

    Use the burrow as part of an obstacle course, as a sensory break, as a calming space, to provide movement for development of motor skills and/or to encourage tummy time (developing core and shoulder stability).

    We especially love how it can be easily adjusted to suit individual sensory needs, that it is child initiated and a quick release safety feature.

    My Burrow comes in 3 sizes:

    Bilby (small) 100 x 150cm

    Quoll (medium) 150 x 150cm

    Wombat (large/group) 150 x 220cm

    Please note: if you are unsure whether the My Burrow will "work" on your carpet, we suggest you first try regular hook side velcro on your carpet (to check compatibility).

    Comes in two colours (black or purple) depending on availability from supplier. 

    The My Burrow is designed for all ages and abilities. A truly inclusive resource.

    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!
