Looking Into The Contents Of Baby Sensory Boxes
When they’re wanting to try sensory play with their baby or toddler, many parents and care providers will purchase a sensory box. More often than not, this box is more beneficial than a singular sensory toy and it will provide you with everything that you need to create a number of different sensory, fun and engaging experiences for your little one.
Not all sensory boxes will contain the same selection of items for sensory play and depending on your child’s age and developmental stage, you may find that one particular box is more useful than another. If you’re wondering which baby sensory box would be most suitable for your little one at this moment in time, below we have looked into some of the most popular boxes that we supply here at My Little Goody Box in more detail.
Starter sensory box
Our starter sensory box is the perfect place to start when you’re new to sensory play and it will include everything that you need to try this type of play for the first time. To inspire your sensory playtime, this box will include a play guide and each of the items within the box can be used in various different ways throughout all stages of development.
Within the starter sensory box, you will find; a ribbon ring, foil blanket, light up spiky ball, feather, organza scarf, punching balloon, tube of bubbles and egg shaker. You may find that your little one enjoys playing with some of these sensory items more than others, but thankfully each of them can be used to create various sensory experiences and they can help with everything from developing fine and gross motor skills to learning about cause and effect.
Mega sensory box
Our mega sensory box contains everything that you will need to keep your baby entertained during the first year of their life and there will even be some sensory toys that they continue to use as a toddler too. This bigger box is full to the brim of sensory items that will help your little one reach their first milestones and again, the box will come with a play guide.
In addition to everything in the starter sensory box, within the mega sensory box you will also find; a hand puppet, cloth book, foam mirror, cube rattle, baby maraca, textured ball and flashcards. Each of these extra items has been chosen because they provide an element of learning through play and they are great for building lots of skills over the first twelve months of your little one’s life. You will easily be able to use everything within this box during playtime.
Monochrome sensory box
Our monochrome sensory box is specifically designed for newborn babies and it can help to stimulate their senses whilst their eyesight is still developing throughout the first few months of their lives. Due to the fact that newborns can’t distinguish between similar colours, the high contrast items in a monochrome sensory box are brilliant to use when playing together.
All of the items in this baby sensory box will be various shades of black and white and within the box you will find; a ribbon ring, foil blanket, feather, organza scarf, egg shaker, hand puppet, rattle and flashcards. Whilst these sensory toys are all monochrome, there are various different textures within the box for your little one to explore, stimulating more than just their visual sense. With a play guide for inspiration, you won’t run out of play ideas for these sensory toys.
