Sensory and Learning is a family run business that we established to meet the needs of families and carers.
When our little ones were younger and were invited to (the numerous) birthday parties, a tenet that we held dear from day one was that the “purchased” item i.e. the toy – had to be, it simply had to be one of enormous “quality.” Tenet then and tenet now! We’ve introduced that same principle into Learning and Sensory. How? Well, we only source good quality toys and other fantabulous equipment for babies, young children and including those with special needs – to you at an affordable price! Our backgrounds? We both work in education i.e. mainstream education and senior management. We have worked in the private, state and special needs sector for over forty years. What do we love? We love people! But we also love our products. We select toys and other products to help stimulate and develop your child’s cognitive abilities, enhance gross and fine motor skills……for hours on end
From experience, we fully acknowledge high-quality toys and the special needs market is an expensive one..
Our products are carefully chosen with the individual in mind. We believe our products represent great value for money and it is worth saying we only stock products we would be happy to let our own children play with!
Our special needs focus covers:
- PLMD – Profound Multiple Learning Difficulties
- Asperger’s Syndrome
- ADHD – Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder
- ADD – Attention Deficit Disorder

Books, Books and did I say Books
“That’s the thing about books. They let you travel without moving your feet.” My mum would often recall that I’ve always been “an avid reader.”
