Sensory Play Animals
Ideal for sensory play, these beautifully sculpted animals will charm your youngest learners. The set consists of eight tactile figures: a bear, an owl, a bird, a whale, a fish, an elephant, a mouse and a rabbit (1–3’’ high). The animals can be sorted and matched by different criteria, including color, habitat and characteristics, promoting language and discussion. Each piece is crafted from our unique stone mix and can be used outside. Why not build habitats for the animals: a nest for the bird, a river for the fish, an icy ocean for the bear.
Children will enjoy creating a character for each creature, making the set ideal for storytelling activities and block play. These engaging animals will be a great springboard to learning more about life in the wild, what animals are in your own environment and how the children might better care for them.
