Eco-Friendly Sensory Shells


These eco shells have different textured surfaces for tactile sensory fun. They are perfect for using with play dough or with water and sand for some ocean-themed small world play. These loose parts allow open-ended play and the different textures and sizes of the shell pieces make them ideal for practicing early number concepts, such as counting, sorting, matching, comparing, sequencing and patterning. They are also great for encouraging descriptive language skills as children will love to touch and feel these shells, describing the differences and similarities. 

The shells are made using an agricultural waste product from rice stems and husks. They are a lovely brown colour, each with its own unique natural grain.   

Set includes: 36 shells (6 different tactile finishes and 3 sizes).
40mm, 47mm and 54mm. 
Age: Suitable from 18 months.
Warning: Choking hazard. Contains small parts.

Inquisitarium was founded on the belief that children learn through play and that toys and books have the power to spark wonder and cultivate a curious personality. We love sourcing the best toys that provide a sensory experience or teach the child something valuable. We are also completely addicted to children's books; our favourites are the beautifully illustrated ones with factual details seamlessly woven into a good bedtime story.

The name 'inquisitarium' aims to create a feeling of place for the sense of being inquisitive, curious and questioning about the universe. It also sounds like a terrarium, which fits wonderfully with our efforts to be green.

We are constantly learning about what it is to have an eco-friendly and sustainable business, and subsequently adapting our business processes and approach to product design and packaging to limit our environmental impact.
