Develop, Encourage and Stimulate With Sensory Play

Engaging little ones is easy enough done but sometimes it can get parents overthinking and creating more work for themselves.

My 5 month old daughter has started crawling and sitting up which has also meant she is discovering new textures, new sounds and improved hand eye coordination. This is great but it now means I also have to be very vigilant about what is on the floor; especially when the boys leave small pieces of LEGO laying around and the toddler drops Shopkins on her travels from room to room.

Worlds Apart sensory ball pit

For the past month, bubs has been discovering the Worlds Apart Sensory Ball Pit. Between you and me, it is fantastic! She loves that everything is basically within hands reach or within short crawling distance and I love it because I can put it next my desk and know she is happily playing and learning while I get some work done.

When the parcel arrived at my door I thought ‘oh crap, this thing is going to be tiny!’. Thankfully that was not the case. The Worlds Apart sensory ball pit is a pop up ball pit which is fantastic because it saves a lot of space when storing as it folds flat, not that I have packed it away much since owning it. It generally stays ready for use in the living room. Obviously as this is a pop up it requires no effort to set up which is perfect for busy parents.

Included in the box are: 30 balls, 3 sensory toys – bean bag with squeaker, ball with bell and crinkle mirror. These items help to stimulate with bright colours, different textures and fun sounds. The ball pit has two mesh sides so bub can see through, offering them a safe and comfortable place to explore. One side has a bright animal print and the other offers fun holes for babies to push balls through. My bub hasn’t done this yet but I’m sure as she gets more confident sitting unaided she will definitely make a game of it. This particular activity assists in developing hand eye coordination.

While most of the time this ball pit is used inside, we have also taken it to the park when we go on picnics, in the backyard when the older kids are playing or when I’m hanging out clothes.

If you are looking for something to stimulate your baby in a comforting and safe environment, this is the product for you. I would also suggest that it would make a great baby gift because everyone thinks about what the newborn needs and not the months following.

Visit the Childsmart website for more information on the Worlds Apart sensory ball pit and other affordable but great quality products.

I have reviewed other great products from Childsmart as well if you want to take a look – Brio Red Stove and Brio wooden rocking horse.

How do you stimulate your bub? Is it a toy, activity or something entirely different?

Disclosure: I received the above product for the purpose of this review. All opinions are my own.

    Omg she’s so cute! And I totally miss the days of being able to safely contain them and get things done haha. Now that my “bub” is almost 3 we’re all about sensory/small world trays and crafting for sensory fun.

    The toddler years seem so long ago now. My baby just turned 15 and my eldest turns 18 on Friday.
