Sensory toys provide a wealth of learning opportunities for toddlers and children of all ages. They come in a diverse array of forms and both excite and inspire children of all ages. From simple threading toys through to activity centers, sensory toys allow children to explore and make sense of the world in which they live.
Our range includes toys perfect for the sensory room and include sensory bubble tubes, sensory lights, and mirrors. Our range has sensory activity centers. These are beautifully crafted from wood and promote a natural desire to touch, explore and experience the different textures on offer. Treasure baskets are a firm favourite. And liquid timers for example, have a dual purpose in that they teach young children the earliest concepts of chemistry as they watch the oil based gel move through water.
Sensory walls and sensory tiles make what can be dull, plain floors and walls fun. They each create a learning environment within the classroom and of course they maximise the space available for learning.
Toys which are ideally suited to children with special needs bring huge benefits. They bring children hours of creative and educational fun. For instance, as children watch a roly poly drum roll along the floor they are also listening to the tinkle of the bells inside it. Children take great delight in playing and learning using toys such as these.
Glow in the dark toys also have an air of magic and wonder about them. The fluorescent drums and mirror chimeabouts provide auditory, visual and tactile stimulation for toddlers and children of all ages.
So whatever the age or ability of the child, sensory toys help provide an engaging, stimulating and inclusive learning environment.
