Our Fun Factory Sensory Gym has been life changing for our family! The entire experience of having the FFSG team in our home was so enjoyable. The crew’s heart and soul is behind the work they’re doing. From the first phone call, FFSG was committed to helping our family and our 3 small children with their various special needs. We have already experienced the calming effects of the net swing and the multiple ways the entire gym provides sensory input and regulation for our intense sensory seekers. What a great tool for our family and more than worth the investment!

Leaps and Bounds Physical Therapy
After five years in practice, I decided that I needed to upgrade the look of my office to allow for optimal patient care. Upon researching some possibilities, I came across the Fun Factory Sensory Gym. I immediately called the company to purchase my own gym unit. We scheduled an install date and in three short days, my gym and my vision were complete. My patients and their parents walk in and are amazed at the beautiful and fun set up. I truly feel that my patients are getting the most effective and efficient care because I have the best equipment to address their individual needs. With the Fun Factory Gym equipment, I am able to help these children improve by Leaps and Bounds!

Maple Grove mom seeks new play area for autistic kidsToday is a good day on the playground for 5-year-old Keagan Lucking. He's running, jumping and racing to get down the slides inside the Maple Maze.
It's a far cry from the family's first time visiting the indoor playground.
"The first time we came out with my sister and two nieces, we had to leave in five minutes," says his mom, Lisa Lucking. "It was just too much for him."
The noise, size, and hectic nature of a popular playground are often overwhelming to Keagan, who is on the autism spectrum. When he can't handle a playground, the family packs up and finds a smaller, less crowded one.
But Keagan's mom Lisa has an idea. She'd like to open a "sensory gym" in Maple Grove. Sensory gyms cater to children with sensory disorders. They offer a calming room with soothing activities as well as equipment that improves motor skills.
"They are working everything and don't realize it's therapy," says Lucking.
The project is in its' earliest stages. Lucking doesn't have a franchise or a location, but she has launched a GoFundMe page to generate support. She hopes to raise $40,000 in her first fundraising campaign.
Ultimately, Lisa hopes the gym becomes a community gathering space for families coping with sensory disorders.
"It's hard to find other parents and who understand exactly what you are going through, that it's not just a child who is being brat or a parent who is not parenting," explains Lucking. "I just want that to be there for parents in the community."

The Big roomIn the Big Room, our state-of-the-art Fun Factory suspension system enables us to utilize many different swings, bolsters and therapy balls to provide children with a full range of movement experiences to strengthen sensory integration, balance, core stability and gross motor skills. Tire swings, the “magic carpet”, the platform swing and the frog swing, are among our favorites. Climbing walls covering three walls of the gym, a zip line, platforms, spider webs, huge pillows, and other large pieces of equipment provide endless opportunities for obstacle courses to challenge body position and movement and motor planning skills at all levels of complexity. The Big Room is also the perfect venue for several pair of children and therapists to collaborate with each other and boost social skills.
Our new loft, accessible by stairs and slide, offers a smooth transition to fine motor play. Underneath, the dark room is ideal as a hideaway and for working on visual perception skills.
