  • Cool Graphics for Cool Kids!

    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. It’s like a reassuring hug, perfect for helping to calm down, focus or cope with sensory overload. The steady proprioceptive input and compression around the trunk are especially soothing for those with sensory challenges. With stretchy neoprene for a snug, comfy fit and awesome graphics, kids even ask to wear it. 

    • Provides proprioceptive feedback to help focus and self-regulate
    • Hug-like compression encourages calm and feeling of security
    • Supports kids and adults with ADHD, sensory integration disorder or autism
    • Made by Fun and Function
    • Ages 2-10

    Getting Started

    Includes 2 lbs. of weight: four 1/4 lb. weights and two 1/2 lb. weights. Additional weights sold separately (see accessories). Weights are safely positioned in pockets inside the vest and can be added or removed. Learn about the calming benefits of weights and compression.

    Use weighted products with guidance from a therapist. You may benefit from 20-30 minutes of wear each hour, or longer. Use with adult supervision.

    • Hook-and-loop side closures to adjust to best fit
    • 6 interior pockets for removable weights
    • Neoprene and mesh
    • Navy with band, dolphin, motorcycle or peace graphic
    • Machine wash. Air dry. (Remove weights before washing.)

    Please note: Weights should be carefully and gradually adjusted for each person's needs. (5% of total body weight is a common standard. The total should never exceed 10-15% of total body weight.)

    • XX-Small: Holds up to 4 lbs. of weight
    • Small: Holds up to 5 lbs. of weight
    • Medium: Holds up to 9 lbs. of weight

  • Good product, but son doesn't wear it
    The product fits true to size and looks well made. My problem is my son won't wear it.

    Good for compression
    This vest is well-made, provides adjustable compression, and can be worn over clothes, which makes it very convenient to remove.

    Wonderful and cute

    Great vest !
    I bought this vest for sensory program at our school. This one has weight plus compression. The kiddos love it, & ask to wear it ! It helps them to stay in their seat to do their work, & helps them stay seated when they are at the carpet. I work with Kindergarten & first grade kiddos. If I find I need more than I got, I will not hesitate to buy these again !

    The vest does everything I wanted it to do.
    My son has severe sensory problems. This vest allows him to focus at school for brief times to work on tasks. I am very happy with it. He also likes the graphics: My Band Rocks. He is a "budding drummer". Thank you for the good service.

    Weighted Compression Vest
    Working with my son's Occupational Therapist, we have been building a sensory diet for my 4 year old son. I had been searching for a quality weighted vest (at the right price) for almost 6 months, when I found this vest. I could not be more thrilled! The weight is adjustable, and not bulky. The pocket for the weight allow you to easily add or remove weight. My son has days when he will not let us pull clothes over his head, and the velcro shoulder straps allow us to work around his needs. The vest folds and travels easily. I tuck it into my hobo style purse when we are on the go. I have recommended this vest to moms in waiting rooms through out Arizona.

    Love the Dolphin Vest!
    I love the dolphin vest. Got it for my daughter and she loves wearing her. It gives her the hug she craves and i can see that she feels more 'grounded' when she wears it. I'm very impressed with how well it's made - it's extremely durable. I highly recommend it!!

    Weighted Compression Vest with Motorcyle Graphic
    I got this vest for my son, who is 10 years old and nonverbal, with severe autism. I have to say, so far this has been a wonderful calming tool for him. It is quality material and simple to put on and take off!

    Weighted Compression Vest with Dolphin Graphic
    My daughter has this vest (minus the picture), and it has worked so well for her! The velcro allows it to be adjustable and comfortable. It's great that the weights are spaced out within the body of the vest to allow for even pressure. We have seen such great improvement in areas that are challenging for her.

    Weighted Compression Vest with Motorcyle Graphic
    I ordered this vest a few weeks ago for my son who has Autism. He fought me the first couple of times to put it on but once it was on-it was no biggy! Now he doesn't mind me putting it on him and will wear it for the whole 20 minutes around the house! I love the weighted vest and I am glad I found Fun and Function who had my kind of price range! :) Thanks! Jessica

    Weighted Compression Vest with Peace Graphic
    Overall, I love this vest! It is well made, seems to be quality material, AND it's relatively stylish. The velcro is placed such that it doesn't catch my daughter's hair. This has been a problem with previous vests, so that was an important feature for us as she has really long hair. The only down side to the vest we've encountered so far is that, even though we sized it carefully, the vest is significantly too big for my daughter in both length and circumference. Since it's a hassle to deal with returns/exchanges, and she will grow into it, we're just sewing more velcro on so we can make it fit for now.
