  • Thank you so much for our sensory bag. It’s gone down a treat and he loves it. Great for special time together so I can help him explore it and learn. Great idea Suzanne! Cannot wait for more of these great ideas in the future!

    Cannot begin to describe the love of the sensory bag ‘A’ received this morning. He’s been permanently sat under the blanket with all the flashing light up toys, making us join him. Beautifully put together bag and it will be so well loved by our house. Thank you xx

  • Thank you…. thank you…. thank you!
    Not only do you offer an amazing service but you go above and beyond. My little girl received her sensory bag today and that little touch of the bag made my day. No adult conversation and a fed up mum. You gave me that boost. Hopefully ‘B’ will cut down on the licking for a few minutes. Thank you for being amazing x
