Sensory Play: The Figgy Play Couch Edition

Are you looking for ways to make learning more fun for your preschooler? Look no further than sensory play! Sensory play engages the senses, including touch, smell, taste, sight, and hearing, in a variety of fun activities that can help your child learn and grow. 

As Dr. Amanda Gummer, Founder of Fundamentally Children, explains, "Sensory play is important for young children because it provides opportunities for them to actively use their senses as they explore and make sense of the world around them." With the Figgy play couch, your child can engage in sensory play by dancing, jumping, and bouncing on the soft and cozy surface. The couch is made from the highest-quality CertiPUR-US foam and covered in a durable, washable fabric that is safe and comfortable.

But the benefits of sensory play go beyond just having fun. Dr. Laura Jana, Pediatrician and Co-author of "The Toddler Brain," notes that "sensory play is a critical piece of early childhood development, as it allows children to use all of their senses to explore and learn about their world." By engaging in sensory play, your child can develop cognitive skills such as problem-solving, spatial awareness, and scientific understanding. And with the Figgy play couch, they can do all of that while having a blast!

The Figgy play couch can also help your child develop social and emotional skills. According to Dr. Rebecca Parlakian, Senior Director of Programs at Zero to Three, "Engaging in sensory play is one of the best ways to promote children's learning, growth, and development across a variety of domains." By playing on the Figgy with their friends or family, your child can practice important social skills like sharing, taking turns, and problem-solving together. Additionally, the Figgy can provide a safe and supportive space for your child to explore and express their feelings.

But don't forget about the physical benefits of sensory play! The Figgy play couch can help your child improve their fine motor skills, hand-eye coordination, and spatial awareness. The Figgy can also provide opportunities for gross motor development, such as running, jumping, and climbing.

So if you're looking for a fun and effective way to help your child learn and grow, try incorporating sensory play into your daily routine. And with the Figgy play couch, you can take your child's sensory play to the next level and make learning even more enjoyable and exciting!
