Sending everyone a virtual hug!
Well, here we are, almost to November and I for one can almost smell the aroma of turkey and victory! Thanksgiving means that my semester is over until we start again in January and that means only one more month of school for my son until Christmas break. I can taste the turkey now! Can't you?
I know that many of you are still in the thick of virtual or hybrid learning and your children are probably getting very, very, tired of sitting in front of a screen. I've got three products to share with you that will be perfect for keeping attention during zoom lessons and for those needed movement breaks.
The products are the newest additions to our marketplace! They are the PunkinHug Compression Vest, PomPom Fidgets, and Emoji patches from PunkinFutz! If you have never heard of PunkinFutz before, you have been missing out! Not only do they make amazing products, they have an inspiring mission that drives every aspect of their business.
Owner Lisa Radcliff says PunkinFutz is about "Imagining, exploring and celebrating the individual magic that children can create and the worlds they will build. It is about making imagination, self-expression and creativity accessible to all children, mine and yours." PunkinFutz is also committed to hiring differently abled employees - from their office staff to their manufacturing and production. They note on their website, "All PunkinFutz original products are manufactured in the USA in supportive and adaptive workplaces using the highest quality materials and responsible sourcing. By hiring from the communities it serves,"
Now that you know how amazing their company is, let's get into their products. Their PunkinHug compression vest is the perfect accessory for those long zoom meetings - offering perfect compression and sensory input and supporting your child's attention and focus. You can also get these adorable Emoji stickers to accessorize and customize your child's vest, making it fun and functional!
Our very favorite product, or should we say, our son's favorite product, are the PomPom fidgets. These are lightweight, colorful, have great texture and movement, so they are great to fit in your child's lap to fidget with quietly. They are also the perfect size to play catch with safely around your living room. I have tossed many a fidget with my son, and I much prefer this to a baseball or football that he will try to pull out!
