Sensory Development

The five senses help all of us – adults and children! – interact with the world. Our five senses – taste, touch, hearing, smell, sight – help us have fun but also lets us know about danger.

Sensory play is vital for babies’ development from birth. It helps improve their attention span, memory, curiosity, and nervous system development. They are able to explore the world around them, asking questions and finding answers. As children grow, they continue to learn best by using multiple senses.

Stimulating a babies’ senses is important for cognitive development. It helps them learn and grow, but can also help them relax and sleep. A warm bath, rocking, low lights, soothing sounds…can all help baby to calm down.

Black, white and brights

When basically everything else is foggy, high-contrast patterns and images stand out. Black and white contrasts register powerfully on baby’s retinas and send the strongest visual signals to baby’s brain.

Encourage vision development

Black, white and bright designs help develop baby’s eye tracking skills, which can encourage them to understand where objects are in space as well as object permanence.

Facilitate attention span

High-contrast imagery has been proven to increase baby’s time spent looking at her environment.

Inspire curiosity

Your little one will want to discover more about the objects they can really see—and they’ll activate all of their senses to gather information.
