Just got back from Ikea and got this for dd.
I got it for £15 in the sale and am so pleased as £40 was too much.
Bibic said I needed something like that to help with dd's "spinning". Dd came to Ikea with me and tried it out and loved it.
Real bargain I think!

My dd doesn't have special needs but she has one of these chairs, and it's fabulous. I can see it being really good for children with sensory problems.

My dh says the only thing it's missing is a padlock on the hood ...

rummum - our girls could be twins couldn't they?

I got it from the Croydon Ikea.
Have had such a lovely few days with dd. We had breakfast and she has just thrived on having my 1-1 attention. I am really going to miss her tomorrow

rummum - oh no It's awful isn't it? I feel that dd is at her calmest and happiest when at home.
MrsF - she has seen it but waiting for dh to put it together tonight. Mind you until the conservatory is finished we really don't have the room for it!

i could do with at least 2..i expect tom would be too big for it....he's 5ft now!!! But alex and leigh would LOVE it!
I bought some very basic 'wedge' cushions from lidl the other day...meant for office chairs...but put the wrong way round (so they slope the child towards the chair back)...well they are a cheap aid to help my 3 stay grounded at mealtimes....i may now fork out the £30 for a 'proper' OT one...but am going to ask if i vcan get one 'free' from OT first.

I wanted the chair for ds's sensory problems but he was too big for them when I first spotted it a couple of years ago - he is seven now.

b&gger. Was in Ikea yesterday (only get there when friend(s) give me lifts so go there rarely), and DIDN'T spot this. . DS loves playing on these.
