4.8/5

It’s like a light up
necklace. Packaging was
quite basic, didn’t really excite me. The instructions were simple and easy to follow. A great quality product made of quite strong
materials. I think this is
great value for money, considering it has many uses. I would definitely consider buying this. I would recommend this to a friend especially
if they had a child with sensory needs. It’s easy and fun to use for all the family. Katrina Stephen – Caitlin 5 Years

Going Swing – Smaller Light Sensory Ball 4/5

First
of all my daughter is disabled with hydrocephalus and has a lot of sensory
issues so what a fantastic opportunity to test the GOING Swing Sensory Ball. Looked
good and very excited to get stuck in and set it up – You take the ball and
place the lanyard blue tip point into the red fixture attached to the ball so
it locks in. Press down on the ball firmly so the lights come on you can press
again and more times to change colours. Ball
came with very minimal packaging just a cardboard around the ball to keep in place,
very good sleek packaging. On the
cardboard it did not really give you good incrustation on how to set up so I
did have to pop onto the website and check how to set the item up. I think it could be a little better as the
red prong on the ball just comes out and is very loose making it very hard to
attach and play swing games with the lanyard.
A little bit too expensive for the problems I came across with the
sensory lanyard ball. I would not buy
this one but I am going to buy the bigger size one. I would recommend for the larger size ball
but I would not for the small one I reviewed as I had a few problems with
it. I did find a few problems when I
tried to get the lanyard point back out it also brought out the red fixture
with it as well. And when my daughter was trying to play the game with it
swinging the ball just flung off straight away was confusing because I’m sure
it should not do that straight away as my daughter did not even swing it full
around .But I do think it’s so much better as a ball or even with the lanyard
& ball round Millie’s neck as it has helped us with car travel’s out in the
dark as Millie gets scared about the dark but with the ball round her she sure
felt more safe. I think a few things
could be changed but all in all Millie loved looking and been simulated by all
the lights. And I have seen they do a larger ball so I am very keen to get my
hands on one for my daughter. Hannah

Looked
and interesting product and something I hoped would stimulate Lizzy. When you have a special needs child sensory
items are things you look for to help stimulate and entertain. This looked well made. To set this up you put the lanyard tip into
the red fixture at the top of the ball to activate. Just press down and the light show will
comments. The light ball will then
change colour. We found this ideal to
use in the car and we would put this in her room at night. The packaging was good and item was good
quality. You could swing the ball from
side to side watching the colours change.
With the Lanyard it was also ideal to hang round Lizzy’s neck especially
when out at dusk or in the car late at night.
We also would hang this on a fitting on the wall for her to watch the
lights changing colour at bed time. This
is expensive but many special needs items are and if they are effective then
worth the money. Lizzy loved this ball
and was fun for all of us and great to see her smile watching the lights change
colour. I would buy this and would recommend. A lovely light sensory entertaining item that
certainly made Lizzy happy. Gillian
