Our Most Popular Vest is Also Our Favorite
Our founder and occupational therapist Aviva couldn’t find a weighted compression vest for kids, so she designed her own. This vest was our first Fun and Function product and it’s still one of our top sellers. Kids, parents, teachers and therapists love this vest because it’s comfy, easy to use and and helps kids quickly calm and focus.
The vest is like a big wearable hug that provides steady proprioceptive input (body awareness) with deep pressure and balanced weight. The effect is so gentle, calming and reassuring, kids even ask to wear it.

Life Changing!I was almost in tears when my 3 1/2 year old daughter participated, focused, and behaved through an entire dance class today! Before this product, she struggled to stay on task through therapy sessions, classes, and many daily activities.

Instruction times, or 1:1 times working?
Maximum time to wear per school day?My 3 year old can't sit still. He also have a hard time transitioning. Can I use this vest on him with and without weights?Joanna luka / Dec 5, 2016The best would be to look at our size chart to get the proper size: https://funandfunction.com/size-charts/weighted-compression-vestsAdina Kuhnreich, Customer Service / Dec 5, 2016Margaret Dominguez / Jul 13, 2016Our vests don't slip over the head because they have velcro on the sides to adjust the compression and fit for the wearer. The Weighted Compression Vests and Pressure Mesh Vest have no zippers, snaps, etc. but the sides and shoulders allow you to adjust the vest if needed.Adina Kuhnreich, Customer Service / Jul 17, 2016Priscilla Velasquez / Jun 22, 2016We have a blue size chart link in the middle of the product page for each of our vests.

Here is the link to the size chart: https://funandfunction.com/weighted-compression-vest.htmlAdina Kuhnreich, Customer Service / May 10, 2016Do you ship to Canada and my son is 4 would I get the Small or XS? I just don't want him to outgrow it too soon.Viviana Marinacci / Apr 6, 2016We ship most of our items,including the Weighted Compression Vest, to Canada with a shipping cost. (Items with a 'calculate shipping' icon next to them can't be shipped internationally.) For the sizing, The XS vest is for ages 2-5, but it is still recommended to use the size chart to get the correct fit for your child. It's important for the vest to last for a while, but you still want to make sure it fits well now so he can get the maximum benefit from the vest.
