It's one of our most commonly asked questions, just which box should you choose for your own little one or for that special baby in your life? There's no easy way to make that decision, but I do tend to have recommendations, which I've listed below...
Ideal for: The newborn that you're looking to spoil!
Are you looking for a gift box to spoil the new baby in your life? Our Newborn Bundle is the perfect option - it all comes gift-wrapped and personalised (with baby's name!) and is great value. Not only do you get our best-selling Premium Sensory Box for babies, but our new (and super soft) 'I love sensory play' bodysuit is included, as well as our popular set of 3 A4 Sensory Prints.
Best item: A4 Sensory Prints - the perfect addition to baby's room that looks stylish and stimulates their vision and boost eye strength.

Ideal for: Babies with parents who prefer a more neutral colour palette
For the last year or so, we've been asked by parents about when we will launch a more neutral box which features more sustainable toys. And now our Naturals Sensory Box has launched! This box contains eight items that will stimulate your baby's senses! The focus of this box is the 'touch' sense, so it's a great box to build more structured play alongside. It's perfect for parents who are looking for more muted colours for their play rooms, as well as less plastic. With items like a mini wooden rolling pin and wooden pegs, there are lots of opportunities to pair touch exploration with fine motor skills development.
Best item: Sisal pad - The different textures on each side will intrigue your little one. It's a great one to use in the bath too!
"I'd been looking for a more neutral colour palette of toys for my twins and this box has really ticked that box. It's also given me so many ideas about what household items we can use in our daily sensory play. I also love that there's no plastic!"

Ideal for: SEND adults and children looking to explore fidget play
Sensory play is a big topic in the SEND world, with 'fidget play' being a booming trend at the moment. Our Autism Sensory Box launched to celebrate World Autism Awareness Week in 2019 and became so popular that they are permanently in our shop. Featuring a variety of fidget and sensory toys, these boxes are for older children (age 8 and up) and adults on the autism spectrum. Our fidget toys help reduce stress, anxiety and boost productivity and concentration. We've found that these toys can also help those with conditions such as ADD and ADHD, and the label can be adjusted accordingly (just drop us an email!).
Best item: Fidget cube - Always popular, these cubes are great for boosting concentration and helping with habits like nail biting.
"Being autistic, I've really enjoyed getting to know the items in this box, it's helped me hone my stimming style and has been beneficial to my autistic son too. The quality of these items is great, and for my son the chewy bangle is the best we've come across."
