Sensory exploration is not only fun for little one but it is also vital for their brain development. It will also delight you seeing their little eyes mesmerised by the stimulation of their senses!
Newborns’ colour perception is limited to white, black and shades of grey, because their eyes and capacity for sight are not fully developed at birth. As a result, babies love to look at high-contrast black-and-white patterns, which stand out in their blurry worlds, attracting their attention and helping them focus.
Research shows that sensory play builds nerve connections in the brain’s pathways, which lead to the child’s ability to complete more complex learning tasks.
Sensory play supports language development, cognitive growth, ﬁne and gross motor skills, problem solving skills, concentration, increases memory function and social interaction.
Our ‘Monochrome Sensory Play Box’ has been put together with your baby’s development in mind as well as your enjoyment. Sensory play with your baby should be fun so be sure to praise baby when they grab, smile, laugh and concentrate as it will encourage them to continue and grow their sensory skills.

- My First Black & White Faces Book
- Foil Blanket
- Chiffon Fabric (colour selected at random)

Each box includes a booklet which will give you ideas on how to use each of the items and the benefits to your baby.
