Our Top 5 favourite adaptive products for children with special needs

October 06, 2018

Adaptive clothing and accessories are essential. It can be challenging to find the right items for your child, but hopefully we can make it a bit easier. So if you’re in need of the perfect sleepwear, socks, and accessories for your child, we have listed our top five to make sure your child is comfortable.

Make mealtimes easier

Children are messy; when you feed them, food can end up everywhere except their mouth. Toys are thrown all over the place. You find yourself picking things up every five seconds. It’s all a part of the parenting process, but there is a way to make it easier.

The Tray Buddi is an innovative product that keeps the mess at a minimum when eating or playing. It can be attached to high-chairs, booster seats, strollers, and wheelchairs, to catch food, cups, toys, and objects that would otherwise end up on the floor. It’s easy to clean and even dishwasher safe!

Alongside this, Muggi trays help make mealtimes easier. It holds mugs or cups so that your child can avoid spilling drinks. Made from a lightweight but super tough Polypropylene material, the Muggi is a unique cup holder.

Say goodbye to unwanted spillages; with the finger and thumb hold, the Muggi helps children carry their drinks even with shaky hands. It’s also perfect for less-abled people who want to maintain their independence.

Getting ready

The Ez Sox (pronounced “easy socks”) for children are high quality, comfortable and make getting dressed fun with their different prints, patterns, and cute animal designs. The reinforced loops give a toddler’s little fingers a secure grip for pulling up their socks.

A good night’s sleep

The Scratch Sleeves dungarees and jumpsuits are specially designed for children with autism, eczema, or psoriasis. They’re created using stretchy fabric so that your child’s movement isn’t restricted, but the trim is woven to prevent your child from attempting to undress.

There are two different designs to pick from so your child can wear them during the day or at bedtime.

Safety
The Adventure Belt is the child-friendly solution to keeping your little ones safe. Handheld reins are a thing of the past and feel restrictive. The adventure belt links you and your child together and is easily adjustable. Let your child feel a sense of independence without them going too far.

It wasn’t easy to pick only our top five products as there are so many fantastic products on offer! We hope our suggestions are useful and make life a little bit easier.

These products are only a handful of what’s on offer in our online store. It’s not limited to five by any means. Check out our clothing and accessories for yourself and keep your eyes open for new products in the future.
