Starlight Distraction Boxes

Starlight Distraction Boxes are portable toolkits filled with a variety of toys, games and puzzles providing hospital and hospice staff with different ways of distracting a child whilst medical procedures are undertaken.

I have recently received my Starlight Distraction Box and I’m absolutely thrilled with it. The benefit it has had to my patients has been amazing. We can now carry out numerous relatively invasive procedures without the need for sedation or general anaesthetic.
— Rebecca Ward, CT Lead Radiographer, Sheffield Children’s Hospital
