CSN Stores Upcoming Review: Pawleys Island Castaway Air Chair

We've been waiting for a very long time for this chair to come in so Zach could try it out in his bedroom.  It took so long that CSN Stores emailed us a code for an extra 10% off our order!  Nice right?!  CSN Stores has graciously offered us the chance to do a review again and this time Zach got to choose the product.  Weather you're looking for a new dining room table or a fancy waffle maker, CSN Stores is your place.  CSN Stores offers over 200 online shops to choose from and offers free shipping on TONS of items!  Who doesn't love free shipping?

If I were shopping for a new dining room table, I'd probably choose something like the Tradewins Cherry Expressions 7 Piece Set.  Head on over and check them out and watch for my upcoming review!

CSN Stores Review: Pure Fun Mini Trampoline

We recently had the opportunity to work with CSN Stores again decided to go with something for Max this time.   As you know from previous posts, Max is living with SPD (sensory processing disorder) and one of our issues with him is that he's forever doing somersaults and headstands on the furniture.  I'm not sure what made me think of a trampoline but what a God-send! 

The Pure Fun 40" Mini Trampoline arrived VERY quickly and I didn't pay shipping charges.  I've mentioned in previous posts that many of CSN Stores items offer free shipping, which for me, is a big hit!
It didn't take long to figure out the directions.  I normally wait for Cory to put things together but we were too anxious.  I'm not the most patient person in the world.

videoI apologize for the sideways video but I'm not savvy enough to know how to flip it around.  You get the idea and can see how much Max loves it!  You can also HEAR how loud my house is!  Right away he was trying to do tricks on it.  I love the handle on it because I think it allows him to jump harder on it and therefore increasing the input he's receiving on his legs.  Luke is a bit too small for the handle but he likes to hang from it..HA! 

The sensory diet we're trying to provide for Max is really helping and we're finally seeing results.  If you're not familiar with a sensory diet, it doesn't involve the food he eats.  A sensory diet includes different techniques we do with Max to give him the sensory input he needs such as brushing and the trampoline.  We're working on figuring out something he can do for oral stimulation as he's constantly eating and especially loves gum and chewy candy.  We're worried that this will lead to some sort of eating disorder and result in him being obese.  This is also where the trampoline is beneficial to him as it's also great for burning calories!  You mom's could play on it when the kids are away at school!

Overall we're very pleased with the trampoline and I really can't think of any criticisms other than the size of it and lack of storage.  That was something we were aware of before we ordered it though.  It's sturdy, has nice soft foam handle grips and holds up to 220 pounds.

I highly recommend this trampoline for any family and especially those who are dealing with SPD.  Imagine how great this thing will be in the dead of winter when they're bored and sick of the cold!
