FAQ - Sensory Boxes
What is sensory play and what are the benefits?
The senses are the best way for children to know, explore, and process the information they receive from their environment. Sensory play is, therefore, a game that promotes the stimulation of all or some of the senses, whether it is touching different textures, hearing different sounds, seeing different colors, smelling different aromas or tasting different flavors.
What is a Sensory Box?
A sensory box (or sensory bin) is a tool specially designed to stimulate some or all the senses while the child plays and has fun.
It’s a container filled with different materials and textures. Aside from the filling, they also include different toys for them to boost creativity and set the scene they want in that specific theme.
What's in the box?
In the boxes, you will find toys related to the theme (e.g. dinosaurs, insects) and filling materials with different textures that help to set the scene (e.g. rocks, sand, rice, water beads, pompoms, wooden sticks, etc)
What are the benefits of a Sensory Box?
These are very important tools to: improve child development, motor skills, cognitive growth and more, all while having fun!
Sensory Boxes are a fantastic way for children to learn by experiencing and recognizing their senses, has a calming effect, helps them concentrate and stay entertained.
It promotes social interaction when sharing the game with others, promotes motor skills, and most importantly is a very entertaining and motivating activity!
Sensory boxes are also inclusive tools, which aim to approach the learning process in a fun and creative way. This is an excellent way to bring all kids closer, including those with special needs; to a game, that sets no boundaries, but offers, great opportunities to stimulate important areas for healthy development.
How do you select the objects for each box?
The criteria we use are based on my experience as a child therapist and my extensive knowledge of child development, sensory integration, and educational practices.
Every box contains toys, chosen to encourage every single kid to create and stimulate their development through play.
In my experience as a therapist, many parents ask me what toys to give their children or how to play with them. Therefore, that is why we select every single toy in these Sensory boxes with great dedication and a unique purpose.
Why should I buy one of your boxes?
I believe that the main message in each of the boxes I deliver is the passion and dedication for what I do and offer. My main objective is to create a quality product that gives the child what they need: motivation and stimulation for their development and learning, but also positive emotions and unforgettable memories.
Behind Sensory Toys Box, there is constant training to improve and grow day by day.
Can I use the boxes if I have no knowledge of sensory play?
Of course! We want to bring families closer to play and sensory stimulation in the simplest way, providing our ideas and the necessary materials so that you can put it into practice. The only thing you need is to receive the box, let your imagination fly and be willing to play!
For what ages are they recommended?
The sensory boxes are recommended for children over 3 years old as they contain small parts that could be considered dangerous for young children without adult supervision. A perfect choice for toddlers under 3 years are Sensory Bottles.
For the Boxes, I would say the appropriate age is 4 and up. I do not set an age limit as each child is unique and their developmental processes are different in each one. So I think the age limit should be set by the parents or educators knowing the child and seeing if he or she can be interested in the game.
