Sensory Sunday! 

Wooden Sensory Blocks 

I’m a little bit obsessed with looking for really funky sensory toys for the kids. Amongst making some of our own and buying things other people have recommended, I search the net trying to find the next best thing. 
What is slightly irritating is the price ranges. Sensory toys are most certainly not cheap, but sometimes you can find some really great things that are totally worth the money.  

Harri attends a nursery specifically for children with Autism. So as you can imagine they have some of the most amazing sensory toys/areas and so we often find ourselves purchasing bits and bobs we have seen him interested in within school. He’s not into toys really so when we don’t find something he seems to enjoy we generally buy them. 

On a parents morning we noticed these on one of the tables and I thought they looked great. Not just for Harri but Penelope too. 

They were £40.80 inclusive of VAT, plus postage. And I know that might seem a tad expensive but the kids really do love them. 

You get 16 natural hardwood blocks with liquid, beads, glitter and sand centres all with different colours. They are great for sensory stimulus. You can shake, stack, build and hold them up to the light. And are ideal for shape recognition and simple block building tasks. 

Harri does play with them when he’s not fixated on his cars/books etc. But Penelope absolutely loves them and can play with them for a good hour before moving onto something else. 

They are available from the following website

Thanks so much for reading, I will be trying to make Sensory Sunday blogs every week, hopefully adding some DIY bits along the way.

  1. Adore this! Autism is a condition really close to my heart as a close friend and guardian to a 22yr old with severe Aspergers, so good to see kids getting such a good start these days that just wants around so much when we were growing up!

    1. Thankyou so much for reading! Harri is so very lovely, we do have our hard days but they are massively out weighed by the achievements he makes everyday. He’s non verbal and doesn’t really understand much of what we say. But he is the happiest little boy there ever was 💕💕💕
