BIG BRAIN BUSY BLANKETS
We have heard them called several things, but the description is always for the same product. An activity/busy/fidget blanket is a lap blanket that provides sensory and tactile stimulation for restless hands. Particularly of someone with Alzheimer’s, Dementia, Autism, or people who experienced a stroke.
Of course, they also can find use in families with youngsters! An activity blanket is a great educational tool that can be very important for the development of motor skills, intellect and imagination.
With the assistance of local artisans, we designed our activity blankets to provide a range of experiences to help folks maintain an elevated level of interest, remain occupied, and activate as many regions of the brain as possible.
Our large (23" x 23”) blanket is handcrafted for us in Massachusetts. Each blanket is a unique creation meaning no two are the same! Every blanket will offer 14+ different activities and tactile experiences including: a variety of fabric textures, multiple colors, items to insert and remove from pockets, opening and closing zippers, handling plush toys, opening and closing Velcro fasteners, sachet bags filled with colorful design stones and tinkling jewels, and bead strands, colorful bracelets, and rings.
These warm lap blankets are sturdily constructed of two layers of polyester fleece of contrasting colors sandwiching a layer of batting for durability. They weigh approximately ½ pound and the weight is spread evenly which makes them super comfortable on the user’s lap.
Important Note: Each blanket has cloth ties to secure the blanket to a conventional chair or wheelchair.
Quantities of these blankets, cut and sewn here in the U.S., are extremely limited. Each is meant to be it's own work of art, and no two are exactly the same!
