4 Fun and Functional Sensory Kits

Here at the INDATA Project, we are always writing about different products and apps to help individuals with sensory issues.  We’ve covered fidgets, sensory rooms, and much more, but we have yet to discuss sensory kits manufactured by Fun and Function.  Fun and Function is a company dedicated to creating different products to benefit individuals with special needs.

Upon visiting their website, you’ll notice many categories listed horizontally including Therapist Picks, Solutions, Calm & Focus, Sensory Regulation, Sensory Play, and more.  Under Sensory Play, you’ll find several subcategories, one titled “Kits for Sensory Play”.  For this blog, I’m going to only highlight a handful of these kits.

The company, Fun and Function, states: “We believe deeply in each child’s potential.  We never ‘label’ kids since that can be limiting.  However, we do label our products so you know what to expect!”

When you see the Fun and Function Logo, you’ll know the product is:

  • Crafted with high-quality materials for safety, comfort and play value
  • Tested with real people — children, therapists, teachers, parents and grandparents
  • Designed with “thought and love” by expert pediatric therapists
  • Unique, not mass-produced
