I always think that it's so important to promote a small business now and again. People work hard all over the place trying to earn some extra money or make little enterprises work and I like that.
So my friend has started a little business while she has been on maternity leave making little crafty jewellery and gifts. These items caught my eye as they are necklaces and small fiddle toys which are chewable. Originally aimed for teething but I put the idea in Jenny's head that these would be great for anyone who has sensory issues alongside Autism. The small fiddle toys can be attached to a bag or mounted onto a keyring. What a great idea and just that nice handy size to keep literally in your hand as a calming mechanism or to bite on as well.
The necklaces can be worn discreetly and chewed on too and this is great if you are conscious of carrying a toy or afraid of losing it somewhere. They are created in super nice colours and I think they look really cool. The necklaces are priced at £12 and the smaller fiddle toys are £8.
Jenny has other lovely gift ideas perfect for any occasion, maybe a birthday or dare I say Christmas is looming? Argh I mentioned it didn't I? Best to be prepared though I feel. I'm sure if you have someone with sensory processing issues, you could share some ideas of something that may work for you or your young person with Jenny, she is absolutely lovely, so friendly and I'm sure she would be happy to help.
There is a Facebook page for Mama & Munchkin here at:
So take a look and as I say if there is anything you are looking for to help with sensory needs then message Jenny on the page. Let's support the small business's!
Thank you so much for reading today....please join me again tomorrow for some telly talk with my Pass the Remote item but for now take care.
