Summer Fun 2023 SMT with Elizabeth Werner - August 15, 2023
Sensory Bright Line

Brand new this month, Fisher-Price introduced the Sensory Bright line – a range of four new products for children ages 3 and older that allows them to create their own sensory experience that’s as unique as they are – all available exclusively at Target!

If you aren’t familiar with sensory play, it’s an important tool for childhood development that allows for self-regulation, exploration, problem-solving, and creativity.

All of the new items can be played with on their own or added to the light station for even more ways to enhance the sensory experience.

For instance, with the Fisher-Price Sensory Bright Light Station kids can unleash their creativity using this interactive sensory table where they can adjust the lights, sounds, and music - use one of the six play modes - and play with a variety of textured buttons, dials, and switches to create their own personalized sensory play.

The line also offers other options for interactive sensory fun, including the Sensory Bright SpinnyScopes, Squish Scape and Squeeze ‘n Sniffs.
