    Not true to sizing
    Verified Purchase
    I bought this for my autistic grandson and bought the size that was recommended on the website. He is almost 8 and after measuring him from shoulder to foot it says the correct size would be a medium, but this is not correct size. A large would be the correct size so I suggest if your interested go up a size for the correct comfort. My grandson gets very angry in this sack because of the large opening for the head so getting him to calm down is not happening for him. I am sad for getting the wrong size,the wrong item and the fact he gets so angry as this was not my intention.

    I purchased two Space Explorers, a large for my nephew and a XL for my daughter. They both loved them. My nephew actually preffered the x-large size so he can store his blankets and other treasures in it and still have room to wiggle on the floor.

    A Calming Tool
    Verified Purchase
    My son was being really obstreperous one day so I took out his Space Explorer Body Sock and "persuaded" him into it. He seemed to enjoy stretching it and doing strange movements in it. By the time he got out of his Body Sock, he was much calmer and disinclined to quarrel with his brother and me.

    Sensory seeking wonder!
    Verified Purchase
    After testing out a version of this that was lent to us by an OT, I got this for my 5 year old sensory seeking nephew as a birthday gift. He couldn't have loved it more. There was a lot of sugar and energy during his birthday party and this helped him regulate. Not only that, but it was the hit of the party -- every single kid wanted to have a turn inside the Space Explorer... giggles everywhere! Such a cool, simple product that I know he will use for a long time.

    Deep Pressure in a Fun Way
    My Kids love this product! It gives my son the deep pressure he craves and he also is able to engage in healthy and fun pretend play at the same time. My 2 year old shrieks with delight as he comes roaring behind them in his get up. Well made, loads of fun, helps him calm down too.

    A sensory play must have.
    Verified Purchase
    I bought this product for my little guy about 2 months ago who has recently been diagnosed with autism after his OT told me that he seems to have low sensory processing and suggested getting a big piece of Lycra to wrap around him to help calm him down. In my search for items to help put more pressure on him I came across the space explorer suit (my son calls it his cheetah), the price wasn't much more than a yard of Lycra so I decided to give it a try. I started out by putting it on him and helping him with some basic aerobic stretches and he also immediately like running and jumping in it. Now whenever he gets upset he goes and gets it out of the drawer we keep it in and asks for help. This has been such a great tool to help him calm down and also to provide him with some heavy work exercises when he gets overly hyper. I would recommend to anyone looking for a product that adds a little more pressure and resistance to their childs play time.

  • Answered Questions
    Do you have the approximate height and weight that each body socks are appropriate for?
    would this work for a tall skinny 17 yo boy?
    My 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?
    I 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.
    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.
    Thank you!
