Case Study:

Little Man Cave

Turning a Bedroom Into a 

Safe Sensory Space

The Background

Myles is a delicious 4-year-old bundle of energy who
craves movement and touch. His mom, Sabrina
Little, was determined to satisfy her son’s need for
sensory stimulation. In partnership with the amazing
Puzzle Pieces Squared, she approached Fun and
Function with a budget of $5,000 to create a sensory
space in Myles’s bedroom.

The Vision

To turn a bedroom into a safe sensory space
where Myles could calm down and de-escalate.

The Challenge

Equipping the relatively small room with durable
sensory tools that could withstand intense
sensory-seeking behavior.

Before

After

The Process

Step 1: Choosing the Sensory Tools

The Fun and Function Sensory Room Design Team had a great head start since Sabrina knew exactly which types of
sensory stimulation helped to calm Myles. The team was able to focus on products that they knew would
calm Myles and fit into the allotted space. The team also took into consideration Myles’s high activity level, choosing
to outfit the room with sensory tools that would be durable and wipe clean.

Myles benefits from calming proprioceptive input. The team chose the SensaSoft™ Compression Canoe, a cozy nook where Myles can settle in and experience calming pressure along his entire body. They also added a SensaSoft™ Squeezie Seat as another soothing seating option. Myles can also enjoy the gentleweight and friendly companionship of Leo theWeighted Lion, a wipe clean weighted animal. The soft glow of the LimeLite™ LED Cube adds a soothing touch.

Vestibular input and motor activities help Myles de-escalate. The team added the Peanut Ball for its versatility and the Air-Lite™ Junior Bolster Swing for its uniquely therapeutic functionality. To keep Myles safe as he jumps, swings and moves, the team covered the floor with gym mats and a crash mat, and added custom padding to the walls.

Step 2: Design & Layout

The team chose calming blues and turquoise for the main color scheme, with yellow highlights. The available space was maximized for total functionality, resulting in a multi purpose room where Myles can calm and play and still call his bedroom.

The End Result

Sabrina was incredibly invested in creating an
enjoyable space that would safely meet Myles’s
needs, making her the ideal partner in this
project. The feeling was mutual. As she worked
with the Fun and Function Sensory Room
Design Team, she commented:

"This feels like a dream!”
