A sensory processing disorder causes the brain to misinterpret stimuli, creating hyper- or hypo-sensitivity to touch, tastes, smells, sound or sight. Kids who crave visual feedback are less sensitive to external input they receive, which might cause them to fixate on moving or pulsating lights, stand too close to the television, stare at the ceiling fan for long periods of time, or obsess with shiny objects or reflections. While it's important to regulate the time children spend self-stimulating, this process is an important part of relieving tension or for relaxation. We carry a wide range of visually enticing toys and games for sensory seekers, from simple small fidgets to elaborate and beautiful sensory wall panels.
Create a variety of fun and stimulating sensory environments with our selection of visually engaging products, each carefully curated to to help your child learn, grow and reach his full potential.

Visually enticing toys and games aren't just a proactive way to keep your kids busy and happy. They help to build a range of invaluable skills that'll help them to do better both in school and at home. Kids who are still growing and learning greatly benefit from toys and games designed to improve visual processing, because these provide the stepping stones for various other proficiencies.
Being able to make sense of what we're seeing allows us to read, write, find objects, learn hobbies, do math and so much more. While visual perception may never fully develop in some children, it's important to recognize that you hold the key to help them unlock their own full potential. By providing them with activities they can engage with and enjoy, you're a major catalyst in their success.
Ensure they get the most out of their toys. Our gel shapes offer tactile input, help to improve finger strength and encourage shape and color recognition. Being able to recognize shapes from various angles and call them by their correct names is a skill known as 'form constancy', and it's a necessary tool for the classroom, because it helps kids to recognize letters, numbers and to understand that objects can exist in various contexts.
If your young child struggles to make connections between similar items at home, he may struggle with visual discrimination in the classroom as well. Letters with close similarities (such as b / d or b / p) can pose problems for many children, and in order to improve their discrimination skills, we recommend using sorting and matching games such as Mini Muffin Match Up.
But visual perception isn't just about being able to sort and recognize information, it's also about honing the ability to focus on a specific problem, sound or piece of information when distractions exist. Children and young adults who have not fully developed this skill tend to struggle with reading, listening and keeping their personal spaces organized. Puzzles and word finding games are great choices when helping kids of all ages grow their visual organization skills.
