Sensory toys are vital for your baby’s brain development and help significantly to stimulate their senses. Children learn about the world by touching, tasting, smelling, seeing, and hearing and as children explore sensory toys, they develop their sense of touch, which lays the foundation for learning other skills (such as identifying objects by touch, and using fine-motor muscles.) The What’s Inside? Soft Feely Box is the perfect sensory toy to add to your child’s collection. This soft, machine-washable box contains ten different sensory objects for child to feel and explore. Each object stimulates your child’s senses, such as the butterfly with its crinkly wings, a lion with a corduroy coat, and a shiny frog to squeak. A big 4″ opening on top makes it extra-easy for your child to reach right in and feel around for the sensory objects.
My four month old daughter just adores this sensory box and all of the goodies within it. She especially loves the butterfly and making the crinkly wings make sounds. I have to say that this is one of my most favorite ages, when she is first truly finding interest in the world around her and discovering what is in her reach. She spends so much time and focus on the little things and it is truly special watching her engage in sensory play. Each sensory object provides her with a new sound, a different color and a new material to feel. She spends a great deal of time just staring at the objects and deciding which one she wants to discover more about by using her senses. Her little mind is growing and developing right before my eyes and that is one of the best parts of being a mom. I personally could not be more pleased with this toy and with three kids and a million toys later, this is by far one of my favorites. This would be the perfect gift for the little on in your life and I highly recommend it! Don’t forget to grab a coupon for 20% off your purchase at Lakeshore Learning!
