Sensory Calm Down Bottle – Original
$12.00 – $75.00
Be prepared to be amazed by these mesmerizing and beautiful Montessori-inspired sensory calm down bottles. These are our ORIGINAL sensory bottles that have glitter inside that matches the liquid color.
Babies, toddlers, and adults alike can’t keep their eyes off the glitter as it moves in the bottle. These educational sensory bottles are known to help calm our nerves after tantrums, big feelings, or stressful situations. These bottles help distract and calm our anxiety, giving us a moment to simply focus on the movement in the bottle. Infants love to watch these. Littles love to play with these. And older ones, including adults, love to see the glitter move again and again. Stress release has never looked so pretty.
How are they used, you might wonder? Here are some great ways that we like to use them:
-Shake them up and watch the colors swirl
-Put them up to the light and see how the colors change or shadows glisten on the floor
-Put the whole rainbow up on the window sill and see how different the colors look. Do they reflect on the floor?
-Stack the bottles or put them upside down – watch the textures and glitters change – will they fall? which direction will the bubbles go?
-Practice identifying colors or color sorting
-Help your little one dance and move their body
-In heated situations, shake, shake, shake them and watch the glitter move, focusing on your breath until all the glitter falls to the bottom. When the glitter is done falling, then tackle those big emotions – hug it out, say you’re sorry, compose your words…
This screen-free toy makes for a great gift!
Did you know that these bottles are also wonderful for those of us with special needs. The glitter and movement in the bottle allows us focus while we wait for our bodies to calm. Many times, you will see sensory calm down bottles in classrooms. So these definitely make for a perfect teacher gift. They are also great therapy toys. How special!

Feel good about your purchase. Ten percent of profits from all Our Friends Afar sales will be donated to RAICES, a 501(c) (3) non-profit organization that promotes justice by providing free and low-cost legal services to underserved immigrant children, families, and refugees. Did you know that immigrants facing deportation in immigration court do not have the right to a lawyer if they cannot afford one. No matter what your political views are, I am sure you feel the same: that is not okay; that is not America. I imagine you too are heartbroken for these separated families and children in detention centers. Hopefully our donations can play a role in helping these families and individuals.
