This study is done within the framework of a project aimed at developing a wearable device (a bracelet) intended to support sensory motor rehabilitation of children with visual impairments. We present an exploratory study of aesthetic/hedonistic preferences for sounds and touch experiences among visually impaired children. The work is done in a participatory setting, and we have used mixed methods (questionnaires, workshop and field trial using a mobile location based app for story creation) in order to get a more complete initial picture of how enjoyable training devices should be designed for our target users.
