Treasure baskets promote learning by providing a much richer sensory experience than most standard, commercial baby toys and are inspired by Montessori methods of early education. Our multi-sensory treasure basket has been created for little hands to explore independently and contains 15 hand-picked 'treasures', consisting of natural materials and everyday objects to maximise both interest and learning potential.
Treasure baskets promote learning by stimulating little ones curiosity and interest, offering opportunities of independence by making their own choices & exploring the treasures themselves. They also aid fine motor development, extending concentration levels & discovering senses in the world around them.
Our basket measures 23cm in width and 11cm in depth with 2 handles, making it a perfect size for sitting babies to begin their discovery journey. All the treasures are hand-picked (and may vary slightly from images) and come in a cotton drawstring bag for easy safe storage. The basket all comes with an information card of ways to use your treasure basket from 4 months through to toddler age!
The basket itself is a waterproof light-weight plastic so that it can be wiped clean and used for other activities in the future- super practical!
Treasure baskets make a lovely baby gift for a baby shower or new baby present as you provide the earliest form of play!
