The Benefits of Sensory Toys

We have seen a rise of sensory products over the last few years, so we wanted to explore the benefits of sensory toys and why they are so useful! 

What are sensory toys?

Sensory toys or products are those designed to help stimulate one or more of a child's senses using fun and play. The purpose is to encourage learning, stimulation and development. 

They are often used for children with disabilities, developmental challenges and those who are neurodivergent, but all children will benefit and have fun with sensory products. 

What are the benefits of sensory toys? 

Sensory toys can assist with: 

  • emotional regulation
  • calming and reducing anxiety 
  • enhancing social skills 
  • improving fine motor skills
  • improving balance and co-ordination 
  • enhancing creativity and imagination
  • improving problem solving skills 
  • increasing concentration and focus 

How to choose the right sensory toy?

There are a few things you should consider when choosing a sensory toy:

  • the age and developmental stage of your child
  • the sense that needs stimulating or calming 
  • the quality and safety of the toy

If your child is under the care of specialists, then be guided by their advice on what is the most appropriate product for the outcomes you are looking for.
