Welcome to The Not So Perfect Mum Sensory Store...

Sensory play includes activities that stimulates your smalls senses through touch, smell, taste, movement, balance, sight and hearing. Children use their senses to explore and to learn. Even as adults we learn at our best and retain more information when we engage our senses.

Sensory Play is crucial to brain development – it helps to build nerve connections in the brain’s pathways. Not only is it fun it helps with learning tasks and supports cognitive growth, language development, gross motor skills, social interaction and problem solving skills

The Benefits of Sensory Play:

- Builds Creativity

- Builds and develops fine - motor skills (pinching, poking, grasping)

- Develop cognitive skills (problem-solving, cause and effect)

- Social and emotional skills (sharing, problem-solving)

- Learn a variety of textures and materials

- Language abilities (learning new words)

- Math skills (counting, shape identification and matching, timing)

- Science concepts 

- Responsibility and self-control (having to participate in set-up and clean-up, following instructions)


Each month a new sensory kit theme will be posted for sale.

Each kit will be a different theme using wide range of materials for hours of play. I will also share tips and tricks through my Instagram stories of how to get more uses out of your kits.

Change the Base & Information about buying as a gift

You are now able to change the sensory base of the theme you select. Does your little person love Dinosaurs but not sand? No problems, select the theme you like and use the drop down box to check what other options you have to swap.

If you are purchasing as a gift, please note that I don't include packing slip or invoice in my orders. If you require a personal note, I offer a hand written card service, you can select this under the add on tab on this site. You can put your name as the billing address and then a address for the receiver, this means you will receive all the communication and shipping details but I send straight to the lucky receiver.

Feel free to email me with any questions xxxx
