    "Great product for strenghtening hands for fine motor activities. Texture is great for sensory issues - very dry to touch - not wet feeling like other putty products. Can mold it or just pull apart and will eventually ooze back into original form. Very highly recommend for fine motor skills. My son has autism and will play with this product. Great mindless fine motor activity. Adults love to play with this as well!!"

    Identified Special Needs Challenges:
    Autism, Sensory Integration Disorder
    "When we saw this item, we hoped it would compare to some physical therapy clay we had access to at an earlier time in my surrogate grandchild's life. This clay feels pleasing to touch, hold and manipulate to someone with fine motor and sensory issues. It warms and softens with touch so it becomes more pleasing to handle and manipulate as you use it. It is especially good to help awkward fingers and hands if you tend to be stiff. Having taught young children with fine motor challenges for 25 years, I believe a few minutes working with this clay before a writing activity might help with that task for a child who struggles. If you want the clay to be really hard and more difficult to manipulate, try putting it in the freezer for a while and then manipulating it. The cool helps stiff hands and fingers, especially if they are stiff from inflammation, and the harder it is to manipulate the more work one has to do to soften it up. If you have any fine motor challenges, I would encourage you to try this product for an enjoyable way to help improve motor dexterity and movement. I know I used it after an injury to my hands. If I had not I might not have use of a certain few fingers today. It is not a modeling clay, it's a hold and squeeze, stretch and pull, squish and pound clay!"

    My son asked for Brain Food so I gave in. He loves it. It's a great stress relief and fiddle for him. He even thought that his cousin would like it for Christmas.

    Review for Brain Food
    Posted 10/27/2014

    We purchased this for our 6 year old son with aspergers. He was having trouble sitting still and following direction at school. After just one day his teachers say it has made a huge difference. The product is a little pricey compared to silly putty however it is a large container. I divided it up into 4 seperate pieces so he has extra in case we misplace one.
