Sensory toys engage a child's cognitive and physical attention by stimulating their senses. These senses can include sight, sound, touch, smell, and taste. Additionally, sensory toys often stimulate the tactile system through various textures or weight. These toys are beneficial to all ages and abilities to spur a child's brain development. The best part about these toys is that each is also fun!
You can reserve one of the many toys available in the catalog or by contacting your local branch. These items check out for up to two weeks (14 days) and there is a limit of one sensory toy per patron at a time. Each toy is in a red canvas bag with the title on a tag. Additionally, each contains a laminated sheet with information about the toy. Some toys are appropriate for babies, and others are for children older than 3 years old.
