A Sensory tool that Stretches the Imagination
Our Space Explorer is the ultimate body stocking that has loads of fun potential in every stretch.

Made from a comfortable 'resistive' material, the Space Explorer suit provides calming deep pressure, heavy work and proprioceptive input. This fun suit helps children develop spatial and body awareness, muscle strength, motor planning and creativity. Head can be placed outside or inside the Space Explorer.

A hit with my sensory science loverI gave my boys (ages 4 and 7) these for Christmas this year. The 4 yr old who doesn't have sensory processing issues isn't quite sure what to do with it. The 7 yr old with sensory processing issues loves it! He has used it to pretend he's a cheetah, as "camouflage" to hide from the dog, and to just wrap himself up while playing at his lego table for hours. I'm so glad a friend told me about funandfunction.com before Christmas.Read MoreSpace Explorer Animal PrintMy son loves to play in this, and it helps give him the sensory input he craves.Read More
Answered QuestionsMy child is 4 years old (36lbs 38 inches) and a sensory seeker. Looking for at the hug and space explores -Something with resistance to give that an outlet she needs and to be able to calm her body as a result of using it. Which would you suggest based on size and use?Jill k / Dec 5, 2016The Hug Sleeping Bag is a wonderful way to have deep pressure during nap time and in the night to provide calm and relaxation. The Space Explorers are lots of fun and provide much sensory input during the day, play time, etc. We can discuss the different options available with you. Just call us at 800 231 6329 and we can assist you further!Adina Kuhnreich, Customer Service / Dec 5, 2016I am looking at the Transformer Sensory Sack, Space Explorers, and Hug (Lycra) Sleeping Bag. My kids are leaning towards the sleeping bag because they want the option of sleeping in it, but ai feel like the other two look way more stretchy and fun. Please compare/contrast these so I can have a better understanding of which to order. Thank you.Linda Brooksbank / Jul 18, 2016All three are nice and stretchy, provide deep calming pressure and allow for resistance and heavy workout. The Space Explorer has several size options and can be used standing or sitting or lying down. You can choose a cool animal print or a solid color. The Sensory Sack and Hug Sleeping Bag are one size fits all, and can be used sitting or lying down. Of course, the Sleeping bag can be used for both sleeping and play, while the others are not for night-time sleep. All are lightweight and fold easily for travel sensory breaks wherever and whenever!Adina Kuhnreich, Customer Service / Jul 20, 2016Daisy / Mar 29, 2016No answers yet. Be the first to answer a question!What is the difference between this Transformer Sensory Sack and the Space Explorer? I'm trying to decide which one to get for my 5 year old sensory seeking son with autism.
Christine Polkovitch / Mar 29, 2016Both are similar in that they provide deep pressure and heavy work while moving around. The Space Explorers have different size options and can be used while standing, too. The Transformer Sensory Sack is one size fits all. The Space Explorers are available in animal prints so it allows imagination to go wild!Adina Kuhnreich, Customer Service / Jul 21, 2016
