First, I would like to thank you for the cushion. My daughter has cerebral palsy and is
unable to sit without support. Shopping has been a nightmare, so thank you for this solution.
1. We use it for shopping carts & highchairs.
2. It adds support to shopping carts & highchairs. It also makes it more comfortable.
3. It's lightweight & easy to carry. The cushion is firm but comfortable. It's cute!
4. I would highly recommend it. (I actually know a physical therapist that is interested in trying it.)
5. My daughter requires a great deal of support so we use a strap that goes around her upper
body & velcros around the back of the cushion. She also wears a neck collar
because she lacks head control; we do wish the cushion came up
a little higher in the back, but overall this has been a good product for us.
Okay we are getting settled in Atlanta and have had a chance to use the seat cushion.
It is adorable by the way! Our son John, who has special needs, just turned three.
He is small for his age and has low tone and poor head control/trunk strength.
Therefore, it didn't really work for him in a restaurant high chair.
He needs head support... BUT, it worked GREAT in his umbrella stroller.
We put it in there and it definitely gave him extra back support so he was able to sit up
straighter. We also use it with my 9 month old in both a grocery cart and restaurant
high chair and it was wonderful for those uses too!
Thanks so much!!
|Hi, I absolutely LOVE your seat cushion. I tried it with one boy who has lower muscle tone. When I put
it in his seat for school, he not only sat straighter, which helps improve his fine motor control, but he sat
for a long time for him (about 5 minutes). We only ended the activity because it was snack time. His
teacher was so impressed she wanted me to show the director of the school so they can order one for
him and a few for the school. I then tried it with another boy with low muscle tone, he is 2.5 years old
and just started walking. He sat so straight in his high chair that I left it with him for the week so his mom
could try it out at home. Mom is also an OT and since she likes it, she is having the schools she works
in order some as well. You really have a great product. The American Occupational Therapy
Association will put their seal on certain products. It's definitely worth looking into!
Precious Ideas is especially proud of the fact that this cushion is being endorsed by a growing number of
Occupational Therapists and parents as a portable, inexpensive support/positioning aid, helping to encourage
proper posture and support for any child. We are inspired by the joy of knowing we have helped ease one
small part in the lives of families with far greater daily challenges. We wanted to share with you some of the
feedback (as a special needs product) we have been receiving regarding it's use. Although the original
application was for shopping carts, it is being used in highchairs, preschool seats and more.
We are proud of this product and the simple, common sense relief and postural support it provides
to little bodies (with or without special needs). As you can see, it is a product that can be
used by multiple little ones in the family, making this an extremely cost efficient baby gear option.
Encouraging a lifetime of better posture, the Li'l Shopper Portable Seat Cushion
is a must have addition to any baby gift registry!

My daughter absolutely LOVED the seat!!! Took it to Isaac’s physical therapy session along with the
info you sent. His therapist, Shannon, was so impressed and will be ordering several. Sara, my
daughter, used it while grocery shopping and was so pleased with the support if offered. The seat
enables Isaac to sit in the buggy just like any other child. I can’ t thank you enough, the seat is
wonderful. I hope you will consider making a bigger version (higher back) so when Isaac outgrows
this one that option will be available. Thanks again!
