Poly Pellets PEI are plastic polymer pellets that are non-toxic, machine wash and dry, smooth rounded high quality pellets. These are the best pellets used in therapy weighted blankets, lap pads and sensory bags. One pound of pellets is 3 cups
Polly Pellets are sold by the pound

Sensory or I Spy Bags are flannelette or cotton. Sensory Bags are approximately 10 inches by 8 inches, come with 20 or so colourful objects hidden in amongst poly pellets with a tag on the side indicating what is in the i spy bag. These bags are fantastic for young people on long car rides, seniors who need a little extra fidgeting, and everyone who ever has to sit in a waiting room. I recommend these bags for all ages.
Sensory Bags are $20 each and come with an I spy menu
Lap Pads are a wonderful gift to give any senior, child or adult who needs that little extra grounding. A Lap Pad is recommended at work, school and riding in a car. A weighted lap pad helps to relax your body using deep pressure on joints and muscles. It also stimulates learning, improves touch tolerance and helps to increase attention span.
The recommended weight of your lap pad should be about 5% of your body weight as a guideline. I have a grand-son who would never lay still having his diaper changed. I now put a lap pad on him and he stays still while I change him.
Lap Pads are the fabric of your choice, you just mention what the person has a favourite of, and I'll go search out at the fabric store then sending you pictures of high quality fabric from our local Charlottetown Store. You choose which fabric you like best. Once the lap pad is paid for I will purchase the fabric and start working on your lap pad. I need 1 to 3 days to complete your order, longer during holiday times.Lap Pads are weighted 16" x 21" approx
