Young children are learning all the time using all senses – they touch, taste, smell, look, listen, and move themselves and objects – all the while making important connections in their brain.
This sensory learning is the foundation to learning more complex skills and tasks such as speech development, social skills, problem solving and gross and fine motor skills.
Some toys can provide your child with opportunities for sensory play, where they can create, investigate, and learn.
See below our favourite sensory toys from Farmers.co.nz.
