Sensory Play Pods

Jaeli & Dali

Metro Makeathon




Danielle and Dan are parents and carers of their two daughters, Jaeli and Dali. The girls’ habit of waking up early and climbing into bed with their parents isn’t sustainable. Danielle and Dan want a solution that allows them to rest while both girls safely and independently entertain themselves in the early hours of the morning. Each girl needs her own solution as they have specific behaviour patterns, sensory preferences and usually play separately.


The team made two hexagon-shaped sensory play pods to furnish Jaeli and Dali's bedrooms, each customized to the girls' specific needs. The sensory panels include an infinity mirror, textured walls, movable pieces and LED lights. There is also a built-in video Wi-Fi monitoring system that connects to an app. The motion triggered camera can notify Danielle and Dan and enable them to see and hear the girls without having to leave the comfort of their bed.
