Gadget Review – Status Squares

Many of you are probably wondering – What are Status Squares?

In short, they are the most simple, clear, and immediate way of letting those close to you know how you’re feeling.

  • Simple – I just have to choose which of my eight squares I need to have on display
  • Clear – the image is a stick-man figure with a very short description of present feeling; they are also in bright colours that adds a fun element to very serious communication aides
  • Immediate – I keep them by my chair and it takes no more than a few seconds to change a square
  • They are small so if I need to take them out with me they are quite unobtrusive. Approx size: 1.75″ / 4 cm
My set of Status Squares – each square is double-sided –
and I highlight my current condition by putting it in the special clip.

My husband finds them extremely useful too as by checking on my current status square he gets a pretty good idea of how I’m feeling. That, by extension, gives him a clear indication of how to be with me (support me, be with me, or leave me alone).

I want to stress that I only review products and books that I own and use, without reference to supplier. None of my reviews are for ‘profit’. In fact the only ones I hope to profit are those of you who read my reviews and decide to give the product a go. They help me so I hope that they’ll help you.

This review is an exception in that I’ve contacted the company for permission to feature it in my Blog. I want to thank the wonderful cartoonist who created them, Hannah Ensor, of Stickman Communications.

On their website they have a fantastic range of communication aides. I suggest you could do worse than check it out. When I buy more products I’ll let you know about them.

Being creative is the mainstay of my life and it's how I express my deepest emotions. Photography, writing, and design challenge me and help keep me rooted in the present.
