This Sensory Box Comes Right To Your Door

A box and a little imagination go a long way

After a freak accident, Audrey Stewart’s daughter underwent brain surgery. Although the Fort Worth mom says you can’t tell her daughter had brain damage, she did have to go to therapy (speech, occupational and physical). The tasks included lots of sensory play—talking about colors and smells and using fine motor skills to pour, scoop and shake things. Inspired by their therapy homework, Stewart started selling the LET THEM BE LITTLE BOX, a sensory box that comes to your door every month. Inside, kiddos can expect different textures and toys, such as colored rice with various scoops and containers. Little ones who need more practice with physical, speech or social skills can benefit from the themed boxes, which can be purchased individually or by subscription; past themes include birthday, garden and safari. New themed boxes are announced on the 15th of every month.
