On-The-Go Sensory Therapy

Could your child use help focusing and relaxing in stressful environments? Whether it's in school, at home, at concerts and movies, or on car rides, a Harkla Sensory Lap Blanket is the perfect portable tool to help achieve a calm, relaxed child.

Our minky dot design makes this a perfect sensory blanket, as the soft minky fabric, combined with the dots and added weight make a sensory input trifecta! This sensory combo gives your child an easy way to fulfill their fidget needs while calming them with the weight. Our goal at Harkla is to help your child live a happier, healthier life, and we both know getting them to relax and focus in class is one of the highest priorities for that goal.


  • Machine Washable - We all know Weighted lap pads will get something spilled on it... no worries! It stays perfectly soft through machine washing!
  • Extra Weighted Pockets - If the weighted lap blanket doesn't have enough pockets, it'll slide off your child's lap. That's why we have stitched so many into it!
  • Durable - We built this lap pad to take a beating so you don't have to worry about it breaking

my students love it!

I think I may have to order more next school year! My students use it as a lap pad or fold it in half diagonally and wear it around their neck! So versatile!

weighted lap pad

This is light weight and it works every time. It takes very little time to actually see the change in posture and facial expression. its amazing!

Dinner time wiggles

We use this lap pad at meal times for our 4 year old whose body does not like to stay still... ever. This has helped him be able to focus more on eating and getting through mealtimes with fewer wiggles and distractions. He even asks for it. Thanks again Harkla!
