Sensory play is essential to children's development, wellbeing and learning. For the last 10 years we've made it our business specialising in providing a stimulating range of sensory resources and equipment for babies, toddlers, primary and secondary age children. Our handmade, ethical and award-winning Treasure Baskets, Stacking Hoops and heuristic play resources provide early sensory stimulation and a sensory education, not to mention being unique and ethical too as many are made by adults with physical and learning disabilities. Safety is paramount which is why we go to the trouble and expense of offering EN71 and REACH certified resources. All our handmade and fabric resources are made in the UK and designed and developed by author and award winning trainer Sue Gascoyne, following extensive research and testing. We're proud to work with and support several UK-based centres for Adults with Physical or Learning Difficulties who make many of these resources. If you‘re an advocate of Best of British we think you’ll like what you’ll see!
Our resources are also suitable for children and adults with sensory processing, physical, emotional or behavioural difficulties, providing proprioceptive feedback, calming relief or acting as self-regulation tools. See our Twitter feed for the latest news, information and ideas, or why not have a look at our new Catalogue here brimming with tried and tested Sensory Toys and equipment, carefully selected by sensory specialist Sue.
Sue's latest book on Messy Play will hopefully be available in the Autumn, and another Messy Play Masterclass is in the pipeline too. In the meantime for Messy Play ideas without destroying the environment, why not check our pinterest boards.
