This Galactic Space Adventure Pod is an innovative, portable, pop up, sensory tent in the shape of a dome. Specifically designed to represent a rocket ship from the outside with images of portholes, landing gears, and an astronaut’s hatch. This model also has a 360° banner on the inside that represents being onboard a capsule, where users can gaze out into the galaxy.

Global Developmental Delay, Epilepsy & Hypotonia
Our little boy has Sensory Processing Disorder, as well as other multiple conditions that affect his day to day life. Yet the one thing we have always struggled to find is a space that he can go to, whether it’s to relax when he’s finding things difficult, to stimulate his senses, or help his development. Then we came across POD’s Play!
This product ticked all the boxes and has actually not only benefited our son, but his sisters too who used it as a calm space to ‘chill out’ after a busy day at school.
It is so easy to use just simply plug in the electric pump and fix it onto the pod. Once attached, the magical sensory tent quickly takes shape and becomes ready to use in only 40 seconds. Making it perfect for those tougher moments, when our son quickly needs somewhere calming to relax. Plus the inflatable body ensures he is unable to harm himself. Whereas the wide door with a mesh window allows family members to quickly check in on him, without invading his privacy. You can even remove the door if preferred, which would be particularly useful for wheelchair users.
We chose the ‘Galactic Space Adventure’ theme, but there are lots of others to choose from to suit your child’s interests! Even better, the ‘theme’ part of the pod is detachable so you can buy additional themed pod wraps, allowing you to change them as often as you like to create different adventures. Other optional extras include a removable memory foam floor pad that increases comfort for both children and adults. Along with a wireless Bluetooth speaker, which can play sounds and audiobooks throughout the pod! All whilst fitting neatly within a dedicated pocket at the back of the PODS main unit, and thus not creating any unwanted trip hazards! Finally, the addition of remote controlled built-in lights gives the pod a calming ambience. Best of all, there are several light settings to choose from to suit your mood that can be brightened at the touch of a button via the remote control!
What’s brilliant about the Pod Play is that it can be used anywhere and is so easy to transport! Deflating the pod takes no time at all, it can then be tidied away into its dedicated carry case. This means it can be used anywhere in the home, or if used in a school setting, it can be moved from one classroom to another, so more children can benefit from using it.
Overall, I would 100% recommend this product to others. Particularly those with children who love/seek Sensory Play, as it really can help children of all abilities and ages enjoy the experience.
