  • A wearable weighted compression vest to assist with self regulation and calming

    The Harkla Weighted Compression Vest is a fantastic combination of sensory input with a garment, providing the calming effects of both compression and a weighted product in one comfortable vest.

    This weighted compression vest assists in self regulation through deep pressure sensory input, a highly successful tool for children and adults with ADHD, Sensory Processing and Autism.

    The pressure sensory input works by placing a comforting amount of pressure onto the sensitive pressure points on the body helping to ground and calm. This gentle deep pressure input provides a calming effect that feels like a big warm hug!

    The navy blue colour allows the vest to be discreet enough to wear during school or in a work place without drawing attention.

Amazing quality!

We purchased the Harkla sensory swing for my daughter. It’s such wonderful quality. The material is so soft and it was easy to install. Thanks Starfish for another great product. All the kids love this one.

Just what we needed then and now!

Having been a teacher, I always browsed and purchased educational products from the previous shop in Kiama.

Now, as a grandparent I continue to love to visit your expanded business. I am keen to view new toys or regulation products to support my grandchildren’s needs. I have always found your staff knowledgeable,...

My son loves his Connetix bought from Starfish. The Connectix helps him with his imagination and hand eye co-ordination.

I love using your products with my NDIS client. I especially find the Coko Alphabet Bricks easy to use and so helpful in promoting literacy learning skills with my client. They also double up as a great playtime activity with my 7 year old granddaughter where we see how many words we can make out of a select few...

Sending a big thank you to the lovely team at Starfish store. I’m located in Melbourne and the lady I spoke to on the phone was more then happy to give her advice regarding noise canceling ear muffs. My 2 year old son, who has sensory issues, couldn’t be more happier! They have given him such comfort in overwhelming...

We purchased the Lycra swing from Starfish. It’s great quality (thick Lycra), stretchy yet firm, and has enough material for the kids to wrap around themselves. It also takes a lot of weight so can be used for years to come. Definitely great value for money.

My 5 year old nonverbal ASD was overstimulated, we tried our usual deep pressure cuddles and reassurance however it wasn't working. We decided to give the turtle a go, and he loves it he listened to the waves and quickly calmed to the blue wave over our roof within a minute. Thank you, thank you, thank you. I write this...

Absolutely love the Whoozit Water Mat. We got it today and Liam, who doesn’t normally like water, played with it for over half an hour with a huge smile.

We played with the Connetix tiles all afternoon with no TV on (big plus in our house). The best part about it was, I am not the best at actively playing with her and I actually played with her for a decent hour or two because I find them so fascinating! Win win!

I received my LCD writing tablet and I am thrilled. So far it’s been invaluable next to my computer to write things down if needed without wasting or looking for paper. I will take it in my bag wherever I go! Thanks so much Starfish!
