Fun and Function Toys Review...

Thanks to Fun and Function, we were recently able to try out this really cool Fireman Dressing Vest:
A little background on Fun and Function:
"With the rising number of children with special needs, Fun and Function is reinventing the category of toys, games and therapy products with playful features, cool styling and affordable pricing.
Launched in 2005 by pediatric occupational therapist, Aviva Weiss and her husband, Haskel, Fun and Function LLC has been lauded for “normalizing” the experience of being different, and helping children achieve their fullest potential. Weiss was inspired to start her own company when she discovered that one of her children had sensory processing disorder. She was frustrated by the lack of kid-friendly products, inconsistent quality, and high pricing.
Fun and Function designs sensory toys and therapy equipment for special needs to help children learn adaptive responses for what they may lack or crave. Calming, deep compression with their seamless, tagless clothing. Oral stimulation with their cool and safe chewies. Empathy and self-expression with their EQ games. Gross motor skills with their foam scooters and inflatables. And that's just for starters."
What we thought:
A and D are really into playing dress up right now, so we were super excited add another gender-neutral costume to our costume closet...but this is not your ordinary dress up costume...each vest includes large and small buttons, zipper, buckle, hook and loop, tie and snap closures. This was especially awesome for 4 year old A who is mastering getting dressed all by herself. I think it will really help D along too. As an added bonus, weights can be safely added to pockets inside the vest to calm and provide great sensory input for children, as the weight functions as a reassuring deep hug. The vest is made out of a durable and easy to clean heavy-duty, cotton-poly blend. Elastic panels let one size fit all little people. This fun vest provided hours of fun for our little ones and is definitely among our favorite toys right now:) ABCD Diaries gives Fun and Function toys an A+!
