Mollie 's Dream Story

Mollie 's dream come true

Six-year-old-Mollie from Portsmouth loves to play and have fun. Little Mollie has autism and doesn’t yet read, write or draw pictures. As she is also non-verbal, being able to play is really important, because it allows Mollie to express herself. Having her own sensory equipment would be a dream come true, as it would completely revolutionise Mollie’s playtime and make her really happy.

Thanks to your generosity, we were able to create a fully equipped sensory room just for Mollie inside her house.

Mollie’s dream equipment was being kept a secret until everything was ready, so it was all fitted whilst Mollie was busy at school. New toys are always really exciting, so imagine how much of a shock it was going to be when Mollie discovered she had a whole room full of them!

Autism can make it harder to process sensory information, and so sensory equipment specific to Mollie’s likes was a really special gift. Her new sensory room has a life-size bubble tube, which changes all different colours and even has mini toy fish inside! Mollie loves hugging it and watching the bubbles change colour, because it’s really soothing and relaxing.

Another thing that also amazes Mollie is her own reflection. She is always looking in mirrors, shop windows or any type of glass, mesmerised by the image. Behind her new bubble tube are giant mirrors, entrancing Mollie with all the images shining back at her… which needless to say she loves!

The room is fully kitted out with other accessories, including soft play equipment that allows Mollie to play safely, but also have lots of fun. There are streams of long, flexible, fibre-optic lights too, which Mollie can pick up and play with. The vibrant colours look even more impressive when the lights are switched off!

Finally, completing the room is a ball pit, which is a sensation to sit and play in, but also really fun to throw around the balls, which come in four different colours - red, yellow, green and blue!

“Thank you again so much.  Mollie absolutely loves her room!”

Mollie’s mum Helen
