Beautiful Rainbow Sensory Gifts For Your Little One
Children love bright colours and as soon as they start being able to see in colour, they are drawn to bold primary colours. Not only are colourful toys more intriguing to babies and toddlers, but they are more exciting too and when choosing between different toys in a toy box, you can almost guarantee that they will pick the brightest toys that feature a rainbow of different colours.
So, when it comes to purchasing toys this Christmas, it goes without saying that rainbow sensory toys are a brilliant choice and unwrapping a gift of this kind will make the festive season even more enjoyable for your little one. If you’re starting your Christmas shopping, you will be pleased to know there are lots of different sensory toys and props on the market. To help you narrow down the toys you have to choose from, below we have listed some of the best rainbow sensory gifts for babies and toddlers.
There are lots of different sensory bottles filled with various items, from buttons to glitter, and these bottles are mesmerising for little ones. Whilst playing with these bottles and tipping them upside down, the contents will move around captivating your baby’s attention. This type of sensory gift can be used during tummy time at home or played with in a pram whilst you’re out and about, keeping your little ones entertained for hours.
Commonly water mats are brightly coloured on the outside with different pictures and patterns and they also have coloured toys that move around in the water too. The Whale Water Mat is a great water mat to consider when you’re looking for a rainbow sensory toy and this mat encourages cause and effect learning. Poking the little characters that move around in the water will be really fun for your little one and they will love playing with this mat.
Sensory balls are a very popular type of sensory toy and they can be enjoyed by babies and toddlers alike. You can get sets of sensory balls that come in a range of different shapes, sizes and colours, like the Edushape Baby Sensory Balls. These brightly coloured balls with their quirky designs invite babies to grasp them, roll them and crawl after them. They are ideal for sensory tactile development and a must-have for any toy box.
They can be easy to overlook, but bath toys make great rainbow sensory gifts. These toys are designed to be played with in the bath, but they can also be used elsewhere too and they’re guaranteed to keep your little one engaged.
