Berkeley Springs W.V. (PRUnderground) December 10th, 2015

Does a child you love suffer from sensory processing disorder, overall weakness, one-sided weakness, toe-walking, tremors or low muscle tone (hypotonia)? MightyTykes™ Infant & Child Weights are used at prestigious institutions such as The Johns Hopkins University and can be purchased for use in your own home.

Isabella Yoshico invented MightyTykes™ after her son was diagnosed with hypotonia, low muscle tone and weakness common to kids with Down syndrome and other conditions. Using a scrap piece of fleece and sand from the kids’ sandbox, she created her first pair of tiny weights. After encouragement from her son’s physical therapist and others, she started manufacturing and selling the weights.

The weights have earned the Parent Tested, Parent Approved, Lekotek AblePlay Great Find, Preemie Genius, and Mr. Dad Approved seals. They are widely used MightyTykes™ are used by some leading American hospitals including some listed on the U.S. News & World Report’s Honor Roll of Best Children’s Hospitals.

The July issue of Guideposts magazine featured the MightyTykes™ story and how they are changing lives and making a difference for many kids. “We’re thrilled to hear MightyTykes™ are helpful to both typically developing kids and kids with special needs,” said Yoshico. “It was exciting to learn they are valuable for sensory challenges, and to help build strength, control tremors and improve body awareness for little ones.” The weights are an affordable tool that can be used regularly in the comfort of your own home.

Currently, you can save up to $10 with special holiday pricing. MightyTykes™ are made from high-quality, latex and lead-free materials that are commonly used in diaper covers.  The colorful weights are waterproof and can be washed in warm, soapy water or cleaned with a sanitizing wipe.  They come in three sizes – 1/8 lb., ¼ lb. and ½ lb. – and are worn around the wrists or ankles, attaching by Velcro closures.
