It is important that children are allowed the freedom and comfort necessary to explore their environments and experience new things. Sensory experiences and opportunities for sensory play are essential to a child's development. The first stage of early childhood learning is the sensori-motor stage, in which children become aware of their surroundings and begin to understand their own bodies. Babies are sponges for learning and they soak up their surroundings as well as integrate new knowledge all of the time! Older babies and toddlers will enjoy sensory toys that also incorporate more advanced skills. At Educational Toys Planet, our main priority is keeping an inventory of well-made and reasonably priced toys, games and activity sets that are suitable for many age groups and interests. Our sound recognition toys are a really great way to help them to gain auditory skills and improve their reflexes. They also encourage appreciation of music.
