Sensory Play Box [Review]

Emily was very kindly gifted a sensory play box, and I couldn't wait to share it with you. Sensory play box is a monthly subscription box, each box contains 7-10 goodies a month, there is also a really handy description card included in every box, which tells you about the items included in the box which I found incredibly useful.

If you are a regular reader, you will know that I'm a big believer in learning through play and sensory play. I believe sensory play is really important as it helps to develop sensory motor skills and also stimulates the senses. Our box contained ten items, all of which Emily loved, Emily was also thrilled to see that the box had her name on, it really is the small things that make all the difference.

Our box contained: Insta-Snow, Chewigem bangle, bath bomb (which contained a surprise), crunchy snowballs, sticky space dust, bath tablets, S-Shaped timer, light up spinner, glitter stick and magnetic monkey.

Emily's favourite items were the crunchy snowballs, Isabelle (who is currently 6 months) adored these to. It was lovely to see the two girls sitting together squishing and throwing the snowballs at each other. Emily had so much fun trying to describe to me how they felt.

The other item in the box which was really popular with Emily was the Insta-Snow, she had received something similar to this for Christmas but hadn't actually opened it. She loved having the independence of measuring out the snow herself and adding water to watch it change. I have to admit it was really satisfying watching the snow grow from fine powder to what looked like real snow. It was also really soft to touch, and it provided hours of fun.

The bath bomb was another big hit, sadly due to Emily's eczema, we couldn't put it in the bath with her, as I didn't want to aggravate her skin as we are on a pretty bad eczema breakout but we did have fun with it. We filled the sink up with warm water and popped the bath bomb in. Emily loved watching the water change colour and watching the bath bomb fizz away. She was also really surprised to find out there was a little-hidden toy inside the bath bomb. Emily got a little purple sponge in hers - which I think is in the shape of a reindeer, although I could be wrong.

I absolutely love the idea behind the sensory play box, it is great for children to explore new things, and perfect for parents who are a little unsure on what sensory play to try with there child. Emily has had so much fun for the box, that we are currently in discussions about purchasing her another box as a surprise if she gets 10 stars on her chart. The subscription box is £25 per box and comes personalised with your child's name. You can unsubscribe anytime, as there is no obligation.

I also found that the sensory play box website has a really cool shop, which allows you to purchase certain items if you are not keen on purchasing a box. I managed to get a little chiming bunny before Christmas for Isabelle, and I plan on purchasing a few more things for Emily. I would really recommend this box and would love to hear what you think of it.

  1. Really like the idea behind this - I am the worst for having things in the house that they can use for messy play, so this looks like a good option
