Any other mamas out there get that (rein)deer in headlights look when people ask for holiday wish lists for your little ones?? You’re not alone. If you’re thinking, “if we get one more toy that takes batteries or talks or sings or lights up, I’m just going to set my whole house on fire” – you’re also not alone. ūüėČ

One of the things Your Milk Shoppe just can’t get enough of is sensory, open-ended play. Simply put, it encourages¬†endless imaginative play without liming to just one ‚Äúright way‚ÄĚ to play and create, which is so incredibly important for development. We are constantly seeking out brands that promote this kind of exploration, and we are excited to share some of our favorites with you!

Some of our favorite websites and distributors: Land of Nod, Fat Brain Toys, The Tot, and Sensory Kids Store!

Specific toys, pictured above left to right:

Top row: Melissa and Doug Sandwich Making Set | Grimm’s Large Piece Rainbow Stacker

Bottom row: Magna tiles | Grimm’s Giant Marbles | Guidecraft Grippies Builders 

Another favorite, not pictured: Enchanted Play Silks
