How It Works

WhirlyGoRound is 100% Kid-Powered

It's Physics: Using core muscles to shift their center of mass away from and toward the center of rotation creates torque. Sustained effort is rewarded by a thrilling sense of achievement.

Why It's Effective

Proprioception and Vestibular Stimulation coupled with Extrinsic and Intrinsic Motivation

Watching others spin is strong extrinsic motivation for desired behaviors & goals. The sensation of spinning as long and fast as they like is intrinsic motivation and provides vestibular stimulation while building core strength.

Physically active play is important for children to get the sensory input they need to regulate their emotions and behaviors.

Have Bad Days

Not Enough Sensory Input

Today, kids are "protected" from merry-go-rounds, monkey bars and jungle gyms, spending more time in sedentary play and getting less sensory input. Some crawl for only a short time or, for safety, are shuttled between containers so they don't develop sufficient core strength for sensory stimulation.

Sensory Dysregulation Disrupts Self-Regulation

Emotions: Regulating their emotions becomes difficult.

Behavior: Their capacity to regulate their actions and behaviors is hindered. 

Attention and Focus: Regulating their focus and attention is difficult.

Cognitive: Regulating the mental processes for problem solving and persistence to tasks is hindered.
