Best for young infants


Introducing MY FIRST PLAY SET, a safe and eco-conscious playset for young infants. We know parents want the best for their babies, and this playset is the perfect choice! Crafted from all natural materials, your little one can explore their senses –and you can explore your peace of mind. So come on and join the fun!

MY FIRST PLAY SET contains 8 play items which are chosen to specifically enhance: children's sensory development through sight, touch, sound and smell; develop fine motor skills; encourage eye tracking; promote curiosity; foster imagination and of course encourage PLAY! 

MY FIRST PLAY SET is designed with young infants in mind as they are drawn to the vast array of textures, reflective objects and black & white colours. Bold black & white objects stimulate the development of the optic nerves helping to develop the eye muscles and brain. A perfect start to your heuristic play journey!
