What parent testers had to say:
Very nice,well designed and is high quality as well as very well manufactured and durable. We have been using it multiple times a day everyday and it stood the test. The performance has exceed my expectations. I have been using it for two or more weeks and notice the improvement in the child. Safe and easy to use. Latex-free, lead free and it helps with with physical and occupational therapy. Worth every cent!!
We have one son with cerebral palsy (a right sided hemi-plegia) and I wish we had had the MIghtyTykes Wrist & Ankle Weights for him when he was small enough to use them. We spent many years in physio using adapted adult therapy products that were unappealing and off- putting for a young child. Now, using the MIghtyTykes Wrist & Ankle Weights in therapy for our youngest son Gabe - we are so happy to have found them. He is happy to put on the brightly coloured weights and the high quality velcro stops them sliding around on his arms and legs. His younger sister is jealous of them and wants to use them as a fitness weight. I think I might have the kids fighting over them soon - that's always the best endorsement of a product.
These are a great tool for OTs, PTs and families, to assist with toe walking and general gross motor strength. The wipe-clean fabric, is great, but still soft and comfortable, not stiff and crunchy. They are easy to use and are a great addition to any program or just daily use at home.
I am impressed with MightyTykes and its simple design.
