Here at The Learning Lab, we love toys that do more. When choosing toys to add to our collection, we spend time learning about each toy and what they do. Toys are for so much more than simply adding some fun to play time. Toys should help your little ones in their growth, learning, and development. In their early years, everything that they do, see, hear, and play with becomes a part of their learning and development, so not just any toy will do. A good toy will help them improve their fine motor skills, creative and critical thinking and hand eye coordination. Here at The Learning Lab, we actively search for sensory toys that embody this and encourage your child to grow, learn, and of course have lots of fun.
We love good quality sensory toys here at The Learning Lab, so we have put together a list of our favourite sensory toys that help with improving their textures, sights and sound. Here are our recommendations;
