We were very excited to get to try some new toys by the brand BKids. BKids recently launched a sensory toy collection which is fantastic. These sensory toys designed to “educate, excite and entice babies and toddlers.”
“The toys are different to others on the market, designed to stimulate senses and provide the ultimate toys to nurture early exploration.”
In my opinion, they do. We were sent the shape and colour sorter chameleon and the sensory robot both of which are brightly coloured, and as they have faces and eyes they really do encourage interaction. We also received the sensory balls, which again, are brightly coloured and really stimulating to new babies eager to experience new things, feel new things and discover their senses.
I’d thoroughly recommend these toys – we (Toddler H) have been using them for a few weeks now and they’re well built and solid. They feel like they are meant to last, and I’m sure they will last until Baby B, who is only 7 weeks, is age 3 too.
Here is a bit more about each:
The chameleon shape and colour sorter is a really long lasting toy. It teaches shapes, colours and does it in such a fun way. It’s said to last to age 3 and I really believe it would. It’s fun and even lights up when you put the shape in place. It also plays music, which could be a good or bad thing, depending on if you’re in the room or not! I’m kidding, it’s not too loud or irritating, it’s definitely a winner in the musical toy category.
There is also a cause and effect element to this shape sorter, something which I’ve not seen before. When you press the top of the chameleon, the shapes eject and the eyes spin.
Infantino BKids Chameleon RRP £16.99
Age Suitability: 9 months +
The sensory robot is brilliant for tiny hands, and also for big 2.5 year old hands! Toddler H loves showing Baby B how to work the robot, and copying all the faces it pulls! It’s a great toy to show actions have consequences, and as the feet have different textures on them it also provides more to play with. The ‘hat’ is also quite therapeutic to turn and turn – great for a fidgety little one to discover.
Infantino BKids Sensory Robot RRP £11.99
Age Suitability: 6 months +
These sensory balls are brilliant for little ones eager to touch and feel, and as I’ve discovered a newborn who reaches for things. They’re brightly coloured and a nice soft plastic so not too harsh. The balls all have different textures, perfect for encouraging dexterity, and encouraging little ones to refine their motor skills.
I can see these being a part of Baby B’s toys for a long time to come.

I think these sensory toys would make a great baby present or first birthday present, they teach brilliant skills in a colourful and engaging way.
