Wonder Connection invented the WonderSphere especially for kids and teens in the hospital. It is a sealed chamber with built in gloves that enables hospitalized children & teens to reach inside to plant, dig, water, and touch nature without danger of infection.  


The WonderSphere was the winner of the 2016 Core77 Social Impact Design Award!
