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

Includes 2 lbs. of weight: four 1/4 lb. weights and two 1/2 lb. weights. Additional weights sold separately (see accessories).

He also likes the graphics: My Band Rocks. He is a "budding drummer". Thank you for the good service.Read MoreWeighted Compression VestWorking 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.Read MoreLove 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!!Read MoreWeighted Compression Vest with Band GraphicI just love it ! It is very well made and well worth the money! My son has SPD and I have been looking for a vest that was functional as well as attractive,and this was it! Thanks so much.Read MoreWeighted Compression Vest with Motorcyle GraphicI 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!Read MoreWeighted Compression Vest with Dolphin GraphicMy 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.Read MoreWeighted Compression Vest with Motorcyle GraphicI 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!

YES!Read MoreWeighted Compression Vest with Peace GraphicGot our vest today, and our 2 year old immediatly fell in love with it. Nice and soft, easy to put on and take off, and the weights are nicely made. Lots of growing room in the xs for our 2 year old.Read MoreWeighted Compression Vest with Peace GraphicAs part of a sensory diet the vest is great. The pink butterflies are great for little girls.Read MoreWeighted Compression Vest with Peace GraphicOverall, 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.Read More
Answered QuestionsWhen are the best times for a student to wear the vest, prior to a challenging task, during transitions or during
Instruction times, or 1:1 times working?
Maximum time to wear per school day?Do any weights come with the vest when you order, if so what weights? Or do you need to order them separately?My 3 year old can't sit still. He also have a hard time transitioning. Can I use this vest on him with and without weights?Joanna luka / Dec 5, 2016The best would be to look at our size chart to get the proper size: https://funandfunction.com/size-charts/weighted-compression-vestsAdina Kuhnreich, Customer Service / Dec 5, 2016Do you have a size chart? And are you weighted compression vests with the picture the same design (quality wise) as the plain red and navy blue option?Margaret Dominguez / Jul 13, 2016Our vests don't slip over the head because they have velcro on the sides to adjust the compression and fit for the wearer. The Weighted Compression Vests and Pressure Mesh Vest have no zippers, snaps, etc. but the sides and shoulders allow you to adjust the vest if needed.Adina Kuhnreich, Customer Service / Jul 17, 2016Priscilla Velasquez / Jun 22, 2016We have a blue size chart link in the middle of the product page for each of our vests. The size chart can help you measure to know what size would fit best.

What size vest should he use? The link did not show a size chart.Debby M / Jun 3, 2016The best is to measure his chest and length measurements and according to his age, as well. Here is the link to the size chart: https://funandfunction.com/size-charts/weighted-compression-vestsAdina Kuhnreich, Customer Service / Jun 8, 2016Kaitlin / Jun 3, 2016What kind of fabric is used?

Here is the link to the size chart: https://funandfunction.com/weighted-compression-vest.htmlAdina Kuhnreich, Customer Service / May 10, 2016Do you ship to Canada and my son is 4 would I get the Small or XS? I just don't want him to outgrow it too soon.Viviana Marinacci / Apr 6, 2016We ship most of our items,including the Weighted Compression Vest, to Canada with a shipping cost. (Items with a 'calculate shipping' icon next to them can't be shipped internationally.) For the sizing, The XS vest is for ages 2-5, but it is still recommended to use the size chart to get the correct fit for your child. It's important for the vest to last for a while, but you still want to make sure it fits well now so he can get the maximum benefit from the vest.
