While most kids think of ball pits as just being fun, they are actually one of the most therapeutic types of play available. This is due to their focus of tactile and visual stimuli.
St. Louis, MO (PRWEB) November 22, 2012
eSpecial Needs, LLC, a nationwide provider of adaptive equipment, rehab equipment and therapy solutions for children and adults with special needs, announced the debut of their new sensory Budget Ball Pits. Available in a Mini, Rectangular and Giant version, these ball pits are available with 3-1/8” large diameter balls. Other options include a padded floor and a Fluff Pad pillow which can be used in place of the balls to create a comfortable resting space or bounce zone.
With over 10 years of expertise in selling, installing and recommending special needs products, eSpecial Needs developed the multi-sensory ball pits in house to be unlike other ball pits on the market. The design lends itself to standup to rougher play, as well as is more affordable than other ball pits of comparable size.
“The Budget Ball Pits provide a rigid assembly constructed out of soft play mats that provide a wonderful sensory refuge for children of all abilities,” said Scott Kouri, eSpecial Needs Sales Manager. “While most kids think of ball pits as just being fun, they are actually one of the most therapeutic types of play available. This is due to their focus of tactile and visual stimuli. We have seen many ball pool products that are expensive or just do not hold up well, so we took all those engineering elements into consideration when developing our Budget Ball Pits. We even designed it with a vinyl floor so if you ever need to move the ball pit, you can do so without having to remove all the balls. A big plus!”
The Budget Ball Pits feature four 6” thick durable vinyl walls with gymnastic-quality, closed-cell, cross-link polyethylene foam that securely attach to each other and the floor using Velcro strapping. These walls provide stability so the pit does not “sway” like other materials. The ball pits are shipped knocked down and only take a few minutes to install.
“Children, therapist and parents will have hours of fun with the Budget Ball Pits,” said eSpecial Needs Web Manager, Christi Martine. “But they are not just for children with special needs. We designed the giant ball pit size that is 72” x 72” on the inside so teenagers and adults would be able to enjoy them for fun and relaxation as well.”
eSpecial Needs, LLC is headquartered in St. Louis, MO and provides a full range of products for individuals with developmental and physical disabilities. The budget ball pits are sold exclusively from eSpecial needs. Ball pits and other products are available through their website at http://www.especialneeds.com or in their catalog which is released biannually.
