Messy baby peeps

Messy play gives babies the opportunity to explore objects and raw materials in a free and unrestricted way. The sensory experience enables them to understand how things feel, smell and taste and it supports their physical development. Messy play fosters your baby’s curiosity, imagination and experimentation and practices good concentration.
