Just what we hoped for
January 04, 2017
My adopted daughter has a lot of anxiety (from prior emotional trauma) that often looks like ADHD. Intense physical rough-house playing is usually what she craves when her anxiety ramps up. When she is feeling especially active, she loves the spinning of this disc. However she has also discovered that lying on her back on the disc with her eyes closed is very calming. The disc rotates on a slightly angled course, which allows her to self-propel by rocking her knees side to side and when doing this slowly, it creates more of an undulating rotation rather than a sense of whirling around. I tried it myself and it reminds me of being on a swing (something that my daughter has also found very calming). The base is heavy enough that it doesn't tip over, so it seems very safe and overall the disc seems well-made and sturdy. We keep the disc right in the family room and my daughter will go spin around for several minutes at a time frequently throughout the day.
