Our sensory kit is particularly targeted at the very youngest for messy play, and at those with additional needs. This kit allows for multi-sensory play, providing open-ended or guided play opportunities. Encourages interaction and joint-awareness experiences and allows investigation and experimentation, promoting physical and imagination play.
Our kits have had amazing feedback from customers of all abilities and most particularly from children (and adults!) on the autism spectrum. They are mesmerising and engaging.
