"We are a charity run Community Centre within Branksome, Poole, Dorset and wanted to provide some more sensory equipment for the local community, and are hoping to create a room that people can come to explore, relax and get some sensory input.
Your POD is amazing for this and we love how quick and easy it is to use! We got it out for our first toddler sessions yesterday and it was so popular and in constant use (48 kids total!)
Thank you so much for designing such an incredible resource."

"This was bought for our children with special educational needs to use as a sensory activity and they absolutely LOVE it. Such a great way to get some calm focus sensory time, it has a built in Bluetooth speaker in the back and only take 40seconds to inflate! We’re in love! @podsplay have loads of different designs and we can’t wait to get more! Really recommend this to anyone, we’ll post more photos and videos soon!!"

"Our little boy has Sensory Processing Disorder as well as other multiple conditions which affect his day to day life. One thing that we always struggle to find, is a space that he can go to, to either relax when he’s finding things difficult or to stimulate his senses and help his development.
Then we came across the PODS Play!
The POD ticked all the boxes and has actually been beneficial not just to our son but to his sisters too who used the pod as a ‘chill out’ space after a busy day at school. It is so easy to use just by simply plugging in the electric pump and affixing it to the POD. The addition of remote controlled build-in lights gives the POD a calming ambience. There are several light settings to choose from to suit your mood. Another great add on feature that can be purchased, is the Bluetooth speaker which enables you to play sounds and audio books through the POD!
The POD is a must for Sensory Play and really can help all abilities."

"Toby loves his POD, he runs around it looking at the colours and feeling the touch of the pod itself. It is just such a great idea, we have our own pop-up sensory room that we can put away."

"PODS are very beneficial to our children both at fun club and within their homes in many different ways. These pods have different designs on them including the ocean and princess castles which light up different colours. To our children, this can be extremely stimulating and calming for them to look at. For those children who cannot communicate or who aren’t mobile, it is important for them to find something they really enjoy doing and that makes them feel comfortable. We may see the children smiling or even dozing when they are using the pods. The lights and patterns on our PODS are interesting and creative. It can also be very magical for the children which may help them if they appear distressed. We are able to put blankets and sensory toys inside the pods to make the space more comfortable and relaxing for the children; or to feel more ‘home like.’ Adding blankets and cushions can enable to children to lie down or be in whichever position they wish to be in. Our PODS are inflatable and so are easy to put up or put down regarding the children or events that we have that particular day."
