As kids play and explore the world around them, their brains help them make sense of and understand the people and objects in their environment. Here are a few of our top sensory toy picks your child will love:

Wooden Activity Cube

Activity cubes are great multi-sensory experiences that help with children’s fine and gross motor skill development. Many of these toys have peek-a-boo doors, movable beads, zigzag paths, and other fun activities for babies.

Sensory Fidget Tubes

These calm-down tubes are great for when kids are feeling angry or upset. Sensory fidget tubes provide visual cues for calming down their bodies. They can also help teach kids how to regulate their emotions.

Baby Paper

This is, hands down, one of our favorite sensory toys for babies! Baby paper makes a crisp, crinkly sound when a baby plays with it. It’s also soft and won’t cut their fingers like regular paper. Babies can safely chew on this toy, and it’s machine-washable.

Scooter Boards

This is a fantastic indoor toy that won’t damage your floors. Scooter boards help provide vestibular input and build core strength and coordination. The handles also keep kids’ fingers safe while allowing for steering and control of the board.


Trampolines are a perfect way for kids to release their energy! Plus, jumping is a sensory experience that can help a child get deep proprioceptive input. This sensory input helps our kids learn body awareness skills and motor coordination.

Sensory play has many incredible benefits for your child’s development.
