Monster Mash (Sensory Mat)
This design is available as a made-to-order quilt.
This quilt is a development/therapeutic aid in the form of a sensory play mat (or bed quilt, depending on the size).
Suitable for ages 2+ with ASD, ADHD, developmental delays and cognitive impairments. Of course, all are welcome to have one - they are designed to be fun, inclusive, sensory stimulants that encourage interactive play and learning.
No boring therapy aids here!
It's a nine-patch (3 x 3) patchwork base formation, with each block featuring a different, randomly-selected monster, all surrounded by a colourful border. Each monster design incorporates various colours, fabrics, textures and interactive elements (including 3D, moveable and audible parts).
You can choose whether to have plain cotton fabric borders or interactive, sensory borders. Personalisation (i.e. appliquéing the recipient's name onto the border) is also available.
We aim to create a rainbow effect with the variety of colours incorporated in each sensory mat, to aid visual stimulation and increase the sense of fun.
Each monster's colour scheme is selected randomly, so each quilt will likely be unique. You can request a specific border colour though.
Appliqué on a patchwork base
Each monster's torso outline is quilted along the outside edge in monofilament (i.e. invisible/clear) thread.
*Other monster parts may also be quilted to ensure security.
- Plain borders (1.05 x 1.05 m)
- Personalised borders (1.1 x 1.1 m)
