There are 6 different light modes to choose from. It helps you to relax while you have a nice soak in the bath. It’s suitable for the whole family which is also great, especially as it’s now only £5 to purchase.

This mirror ball gives the room a real party feel. It rotates and projects a selection of disco-like spots around the room from the colour wheel. We have one of these in both of our sensory rooms and our service users love them. Search product code 07005 in their catalogue or visit their website for more information.
The Hi-Lo is fantastic for helping children to relax and sleep. Due to its versatile and soft material, children with autism, epilepsy and other challenging behaviours can benefit from this product. Although it’s soft, it’s still tough enough to be kicked or hit. Its ideal space would be in a bedroom, playroom or large space. Learn more about the Hi-Lo here.
