Does this Work as a Fidget Toy in the Classroom?
Yes! As you can see in the reviews below, it's been shown to stop fidgeting for some children instantly:
"Immediately upon using the lap pad our son stopped his stimming behavior in the classroom!!! What a miracle!!!" - Loving Mother
Is this Lap Pad Washable?
Yes, it is! It is machine washable with cold water and then low heat tumble dry or hang dry. Do not use fabric softener, as the minky fabric stays soft on its own.

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!
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!
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!
I purchased this to place on my abdomen to reduce anxiety. A natural kind of relaxer.
