With six different activation plates to explore, the Sensational Textured Activity Center is a hub of sensory stimulation. Each activation plate has a different effect that delights visual, auditory and tactile senses. Adjustable features make this toy customizable depending on the individual needs of the child.
Sensory development relates to a child’s ability to gather and understand information from the environment through any of the five senses—hearing, tasting, touching and/or smelling. Children develop a sensory preference (how they prefer take in information) and a sensory process (how they respond to sensory input).
Weplay Up On Top encourages balance and promotes body awareness as kids stabilize the malleable pieces on top of their heads. There are a total of 3 pieces featuring different facial expressions in blue, green and orange. Kids can practice balancing one piece and add on more pieces as they advance their gross motor skills.
Whether for sitting, standing, or any position in between, Weplay’s Whally Board is an ergonomically designed balance board. The board’s appearance was inspired by a fish, and has bubbles and waves to continue the aquatic theme of the shape. The hard plastic is textured, which allows children to find grip on the board for sitting and standing.
Made of sturdy plastic and rubber, Honey Hills are a set of interlocking steppers with a concave and convex surface on each piece. The shape and design make them ideal to be stacked and pathed for kids to walk on during playtime. With accompanying tactile bags that can be filled with stimulating items like sand, rice or beans, Honey Hills is a tool to target the senses as well as physical skills.
Phlat Ball® V3 is a combination ball and disc for double the fun! When the Phlat Ball® V3 is pressed flat it sticks together like a disc. Phlat Ball transforms from a flying disc to a ball when thrown. When will it pop? No one knows! The Phlat Ball® V3 disc-to-ball reaction is a surprise because of its variable time-delay feature.
The Tickle Me 9’ Geo D-Tunnel is multicolored with geometrically shaped windows along the length of the tube. The tunnel comes together quickly and easily with some assembly for loads of fun, but collapses down for convenient storage. The D shaped tunnel has a wide path for kids of all ages (and adults!) to crawl through and the flat bottom surface of the tunnel is easy on the knees. Kids will be tickled by the removable streamers that stick to the tunnel’s ceiling brushing them as they crawl through!

The product promotes independence as the child can self-inflate their vest in a discrete way to get the exact amount of safe pressure they need. The Snug Vest is stylish and unsuspected making it inclusive for kids to wear regularly!

Food pouches are a convenient solution at snack time as little ones learn to feed themselves, but a baby squeezing a food pouch can be a messy affair. EasyPouch© is a hard case that covers food pouches and helps kids feed themselves independently while giving parents peace of mind. Using child resistant latches, EasyPouch© is easy for adults to use, but tough for kids to open and create a mess. EasyPouch© works with food pouches both large and small, and is compatible with the Infantino Fresh Squeezed food pouch system and the PouchPop Topper.
Kids are more productive and spend more time on task when they can move! Bouncy Bands are a heavy-duty solid rubber bungee-like cord that attach to the legs of a chair or desk to allow kids to discretely exercise their legs while sitting. Kids with short legs can enjoy being able to rest their feet on the Bouncy Band instead of having them dangle all day. Bouncy Bands are quiet and don't distract others, so they are a great tool for the classroom setting!
