Sensory toys − what are they? Have you ever come across the name ‘sensory toys’? We guess so, because their popularity is constantly growing. There is nothing strange about it − these are objects that are used for playing, but also to develop your baby’s senses, stimulate their creativity and curiosity about the world. Sensory toys are designed to support the mental and physical development of a child by directly involving touch, smell, sight, hearing, and often taste. Sensory toys include many different options: plastic masses, musical instruments, specially designed books, mascots, puzzles and sensory cubes for children. Investing in them is recommended by specialists who see a clear relationship between the development of children and the toys they are surrounded with.

What distinguishes sensory toys?

Sensory toys are designed in such a way as to stimulate the child’s senses with appropriately selected colours, interesting textures, interesting details or sounds they make when touched. Engaging sight, hearing or touch while playing allows the child to obtain valuable information about the world around them, and at the same time develop motor skills, especially the fine ones (e.g. grasping with fingers). It’s hard to get bored with sensory toys. They inspire, fascinate, delight, and offer many possible applications that the child will be happy to discover on their own. Educational toy − Plush Bowling Pins BADGER EDMUND FRIENDS:

Sensory toys − which one to choose?

The ideal sensory toys for the youngest children are various types of stimulating teethers or books with pages made of various materials (for example, textured plastics or soft plush) that can be turned with fingers. An interesting example of this type of product is the educational toy − TITI THE TOUCAN hanging toy featuring not only on an interesting form, but also strong colour contrasts that are optimal for babies. Another example of an interesting toy for babies is a soft educational toy − WOODLAND, which supports the grasp reflex thanks to spatial elements with a different structure. Toys necessary for instance for travel include BALLERINA FANNY hanging toy, which can be also hung on a baby cot or pram.

Slightly older children, around the age of 2, can reach for sensory balls with various insets that will be useful when learning colours, or sound puzzles. Later, you can gradually introduce such solutions as, for example, kinetic sand or plastic masses that engage both eyesight and touch.

For older children, sensory toys, for example in the form of jigsaws or three-dimensional puzzles, will be a perfect solution. Their advantage is not only a positive impact on the child’s development, but also integration with peers or siblings − you can play sensory puzzles in a group!
