Classifying Making Sense™ products according to the different senses:

Making Sense™ products are designed to train the brain to better receive and process sensory stimulations. Our body's sensory systems are correlated and start to develop as early as within the mother's womb. Our sensory systems "feed" one another during daily functioning and thus cause neurological processes of growth and learning. Growth and learning capabilities are within the DNA of each and every individual, and need such continuous stimulation.
Each of Making Sense™ products provides several combined sensory stimulations:

The Balance (Vestibular) System:
Vestibular movement may rise and increase excitement of a child, or alternatively relax a child and calm him down. In any case, vestibular stimulation is necessary.

Full spin with our Fuga™ is fun, enjoying and gives an amusement park feeling, while it also provides an opportunity to practice the vestibular system to its maximum active capacity. Other sensory systems are taking part as well. Tension on the muscles and strings sends proprioceptive messages to the brain, allowing it to improve its vestibular balance as well as feed-back systems which are a corner stone for every child's motor and cognitive development. Slowly the brain "learns" what are the right reactions necessary for this specific stimulation and at what level those reactions are necessary.

The Proprioceptive System:
Proprioceptive activity is necessary for everybody, especially those who find it difficult to stabilize their levels of stimulation. Some children tend to move rapidly, jump and bump, swing their legs endlessly, as if it seems they cannot enjoy a single moment of peace and tranquility. In order to help these children relax, you can satisfy their neurological systems by sending it deep-pressure messages.
These proprioseptive messages are then received by the muscles, the joints and the strings, only to later improve control over motor action, play and self-awareness on the body's status and positioning. The brain also "learns" the necessary level of effort needed to accomplish the different tasks and actions.
Proprioceptive disorders are usually reflected in coordination difficulties and inabilities to move smoothly. They cause great difficulties in completing tasks that require heavy motor skills, such as walking and riding a bike, as well as difficulties in accomplishing tasks that require fine motor capabilities such as writing and using scissors for cutting.
Every child needs a big hug, swinging and rotating activities, especially hyposensitive/ under-responsive children. High-effort activity and proprioceptive practice will relax the child by providing his body with the necessary routine messages it so desperately needs.

 Our Binni™ family of products are wearable bean-bags, which allow the child two complimentary experiences:
 (i) a static, relaxing, hugging feeling when just lying on it;
(ii) active, fun and enjoying feeling when wearing it and playing. The child can just choose the right functionality for the Binni™ at any given moment.

Our Mishu™ family of products is a set of heavy dolls, pillows and capes, which provide the kid with deep-pressure touch. Together with the different textures of the Mishu™ fabrics, the entire tactile system of the child is stimulated.



The Tactile (touch) System:
Experiencing touching various materials with the bear hands and all over the body is very important for the entire sensory integration process and development. A Hyper-Sensitive child would over-react to touch and would have a very low threshold for tactile stimulation. This could result in children avoiding touch and physical encounters.
On the other hand, Hypo-Sensitive children would under-react touch and would have a very high threshold for tactile stimulation. This could result in children hardly reacting to pain and bruisers.

Many kids and adults find it hard to concentrate while their body is passive. Since the brain learns best through active engagement, even bright and capable learners can experience difficulty paying attention during passive learning experiences
Our Littel™ family of products is a set of heavy dolls, which provide the child with deep-pressure touch, while allowing him manual occupation and transforming sitting in class into an active learning.
