Yup, I spelled that right.  Skweezrs!

What is Skweezrs?  Skweezrs is a small, family-run business that makes lycra spacial body sock-sacks and bedsheets.  If I didn’t have a child with sensory needs, I would probably be wondering what is a body sock-sack, and why would anyone want a lycra bedsheet.  A spacial body sock is a therapeutic product designed to benefit children who have sensory needs, by providing deep pressure input while increasing spatial awareness and gross motor control.  A spacial body sock looks like this:

A lycra bedsheet provides similar therapeutic benefits to children with sensory needs but also helps soothe and relax children when it is time for sleep.  The sheet is designed to fit snugly over your child’s mattress like this:

One of the great thing about the Skweezrs company is that it was created by parents of an autistic daughter who were looking to create an affordable, quality product not only to suit their daughter’s needs, but to help other families with similar challenges by providing fun, high quality, affordable products.  Skweezrs products work especially well for kids with Autism, PDD, Aspergers, ADD/ADHD, and other neurological disorders.

I recently had to opportunity to review one of Skweezrs bed sheets.  Skweezrs currently sells their products through an Etsy store, and their products are handmade and made to order.  You get to choose what size sheet you want, and the colors you would like.  Colors available when I ordered were: royal blue, red, yellow, lime green, purple, pink, turquoise, white, or black for the base of the sheet and red, navy blue, light blue, royal blue, yellow, lime green, purple, pink, turquoise, white, black,orange, or gray for the band.  My son chose the royal blue base with a red band because those are Spider-Man’s colors!
When the product arrived, I was immediately impressed with the color quality of the four-way stretch Lycra, as well as the workmanship.

After inspecting the sheet, I quickly wondered what it was going to be like trying to pull the snug fitting sheet up over the mattress, and wondered if it was a two person job.  To my surprise, it actually slid on pretty easily considering how snug the sheet is designed to be.

Of course, the real test came when it was time for my kids to check it out.  Both my kids loved it!  Even my daughter who doesn’t have any sensory needs, in fact she started begging me for her own sheet.  (Excuse my daughter’s crazy hair in the picture, she was crawling around inside the sheet before she would hold still for a picture!)

I have found that my son not only loves the sheet for sleeping, but he also likes to go to his room a couple times a day just to play under the sheet.  He has told me over and over how much he loves his new sheet.  It is also great in this warm weather because it offers pressure without the need for a heavy weighted blanket or heavy comforters.  On cooler nights, we have just put regular blankets or comforters right over top the Skweezrs bed sheet.

Skweezrs bedsheets come in various sizes from toddler size to queen, to correspond with your mattress size.  Bedsheet prices range from about $24 to $39 depending on the size of the sheet.

Skweezrs also sells body socks, which start at $22.  However, price varies depending on size of sack and customization.  There are so many options, such as emblems like a superhero, princess crown, flower, the child’s name/initial, or polkadots.  They can even do more complex embellishments like a Lego character, the solar system, or even some cartoon characters.  Don’t these look like so much fun!

    I love this idea! My daughter uses one of these in the resource room at the school. She is constantly wanting the pressure. We have tried weighted items and these are ok, but not quite what we wanted. Us checking out this site was due to another mom and I discussing the needs of our children together. I am so pleased that there is someone out there that is willing to sew these for other moms who need this type of product! Thank you very much. I am SURE that this will work wonders for our daughter!

    I have a grandson who is non verbal. He loves being wrapped up in his covers when he goes to bed. He gets very angry when the covers come loose on him. I think this would be perfect for him. I plan on getting several depending on the price.

    My son is autistic and needs lots of sensory input to settle down. I have tried weighted blankets and body pillows. I was told about the bed sheet by his OT and started researching. This looks like the optimal solution. I would love to have one. Definitely considering fine.

    My daughter’s occupational therapist recommended the Skweezrs lycra sheet as a means of providing the pressure and closeness she craves due to Sensory Processing Disorder. We have searched for something that gives her the input she needs to relax and fall asleep. We can’t wait to try this innovative product. And purchasing from a family business is an extra bonus.
