Research and benefits
Sensory mats are a fun way for your baby to feel so many new textures - all in one place!
As babies develop an understanding of textures, it helps build positive pathways in the brain, that support your child's cognitive development.
It is the perfect toy for babies to enjoy tummy time. Lying on the stomach strengthens the neck and back, which supports development of gross motor skills (like crawling, rolling and walking).
Exploring different textures often provides a calming and relaxing sensation to babies.
