Like My Little House, My Little Farm is a multi-sensory, multi-purpose, interactive, reversible 3D playhouse. 32 colorful and matching felt pieces stick to this wonderful, kid-friendly barn and farm environment.

Little hands love to play with these soft shapes, matching them to the felt barn, while learning labels for a wide variety of language targets that are fun and relevant. We love so many things about My Little Farm: that it was developed by an experienced Speech and Language Pathologist, that it folds and stores easily, that it grows with the learner, just to name a few!

Glo Pals Liquid Activated Light up Sensory Toys
Pre School SENSORY AWARD
The Glo Pals were inspired by a child with autism who was terrified of the bath. His mother used the technology behind the Pals to encourage him to overcome his fear and learn to love bath time. His story influenced the development of the Glo Pal characters and our mission to create a product that would engage children in sensory exercises and brighten bath time.
Autism Live says: The super awesome Glo Pals were inspired by a mom who wanted to make bath time more fun for her child on the spectrum. These light up cubes are attention grabbing and addictive. Use them in the bath, pool, or sink to create relaxing sensory fun.
