Hein-Chris was introduced to a “first aid foil thermal blanket” (space blanket) during a Toptots class. When the instructor laid it down - unfurled - on the floor, I had no hope that Hein-Chris would go near it, leave alone touch it. Surprisingly he took to it straight away. My guess was that while it made tons of noise, Hein-Chris figured he was in control of the racket. From that day on, space blankets became a big part of his daily sensory diet. I was in shock and awe that my darling boy - who could not stand sound - was making noise. It was music to my ears. Please give it a try. You never know. It is available at Dischem and other leading pharmacies in the first aid section.
