From Water Tables to Silicone Poppers, These Are the Best Sensory Toys For Toddlers

My 2-year-old loves any toy that will light up or make noise, but the things he spends the most time focused on are toys that engage his senses. Sensory toys stimulate touch, hearing, sight, and sometimes smell and taste, and they empower kids to interact with the world around them and experience new things. This type of play has tons of benefits for toddlers and preschoolers, including coordination and motor skills, emotional development, social skills, problem solving, creativity and imagination, communication, and more. Everything from sensory bins to textured toys to water tables are fun for toddlers, and are designed to help them grow and learn. Here are a few of my favorite sensory toys that will entertain your little ones for hours.
