Like a Balance Ball for Kids!

Our spiky tactile cushion improves posture and focus simultaneously! It's spiky on one side and bumpy on the other, so your child can choose the type of tactile input that's right for them. This cushion provides active seating or balance training combined with the tactile input that many children crave. The Spiky Tactile Cushion encourages kids to wiggle, improving concentration and attention skills while encouraging them to stay in place.

  • Soft tactile spikes and smooth bumps encourage exploration

  • Great for children with attention deficit disorder and sensory processing issues

  • Made by Fun and Function

  • Ages 4 - preteen


Ideas for Use

Strong enough for regular use during therapy, as part of an obstacle course, or for seating during homework or classwork time. Use while standing to work on balance too.

Getting Started

Air adjustable to inflate as much or as little as you need. Note that cushion cannot be deflated once you add air (like a basketball). Comes inflated and does not require pumping. To add additional air, purchase hand pump (see accessories tab). Add extra comfort with our soft Furry Seat Covers (see accessories tab). Use with adult supervision.

Active 5 yr. old
According to her K-4 teachers, this has really helped our 5 yr. old daughter settle down and focus in class. The teacher was wishing she had a couple more for other students in the class.

I love using this for my students with Autism or sensory disorders. It helps them get that sensory stimulus they often crave in unproductive ways in an extremely discrete and safe way.

The spiky cushion does help with enough stimulation keeping him seated and willing to participate for longer periods at a time. This tool will be very useful at school.

Great service
The cushions were purchased to help in the consultation with a classroom of preschool children. Using the cushions with children who have difficulty sitting and attending during large group time helps focus attention and increase the ability to sit through a story.

Spiky Tactile Cushion
We got this cushion to help during meal times. And it has! The wiggles have stopped for the most part! We pair this with the weighted vest and have a pleasant meal now! My 18 month old also uses it for her sensory problems. We are exposing her to different tactile and this cushion helps with that process! She will sit on it while playing as well as turn it to the spikey side and sit there and feel it for a while which helps expose her hands to different textures!

Spiky Tactile Cushion
This is a very nice spiky tactile cushion. Our school only provided a wedge seat. My son never has liked them. For the price I bought it and he now utilizes it at school. Great high quality Material.

Spiky Tactile Cushion
This cushion has the option of using the spiky side or the smooth side on the other side to sit on. I find that children who have sensory "issues" tend to be drawn to the spiky side in order to receive the proprioceptive feedback that it offers. This cushion helps children with ADHD and Autism Spectrum Disorder focus and stay seated longer.

Spiky Tactile Cushion
Love this. Our son's Occupational Therapist recommended the cushion to us to help improve his posture and sitting position. It has made a world of difference! The child who used to on the edge of his chair with this body and legs unaligned now uses perfect posture and is able to focus while workinging. I am so glad that we bought 3!
