Review: Edushape Sensory Ball
Sensory play for little superstars! Children will love this unique textured ball. It is soft and stimulating. enhances gross motor and tactile skills, encourages crawling and coordination.
I do wish we’d had this ball earlier, as I think S would have loved it when she was younger too (though it’s not suitable for babies under 3 months).
The ball also came with a leaflet from the RNIB, and would be great for children with all kinds of learning disabilities as well. They come in several bright colours, and the texture means the ball is fun to just sit and play with. It can also be fun for adults – I often find myself just sitting playing with it when I’m supposed to be tidying the toys away!
The sensory balls cost £9.59 at the time of writing, reduced from £16.61.
If you said to me that a ball cost a tenner, I’d laugh at you. But actually, for this ball, I think I’d be quite happy to pay that for it. It’s not just a ball; it’s a sensory toy, it’s the perfect size for practising catching, and until S gets more forceful with her throwing, it’s perfect for playing with indoors. For all the fun we’ve had playing with it, and the time it’s kept her entertained while I just put the washing on/did the washing up/popped upstairs to put the washing away, it’s definitely worth it.
