Buying fun, educational and interactive toys that are appropriate to each stage of a child’s development can be costly, so wouldn’t it be great to have a single product that can develop along with your child?
That’s just what in-home experts at Hillarys have done. By incorporating advances in wearable technology, Hillarys have come up with the Sensory Carpet - a concept that will create a safe, affordable and fun multi-sensory environment that offers children an interactive experience they’ll love.
The Sensory Carpet concept combines LED lights, sound chips and vibration motors sewn into an under-layer of the carpet. The carpet itself is plush and soft to the touch, but sit, roll crawl or walk around on the surface and you can enjoy a stimulating light show and experience the unique sounds and sensations created by the vibration motors and sound chips.
The multi-sensory activities are controlled via a simple Smartphone app linked to a Bluetooth speaker, allowing parents to manage the levels of stimuli to suit their child’s needs and mood at any time of the day or night. Hillarys are also working with child development experts to create bespoke activities for every stage of a child’s development, so that parents can select age-appropriate activities for their children from the app menu. Best of all, when not in use, the carpet simply provides a safe, warm and stylish floor surface in the home.
Tara Hall from Hillarys said: “Babies, toddlers and young children love to explore, using all their senses to experience the world around them. It’s wonderful to think that advances in wearable technology could help expand the horizons of many children, all in the comfort of their own homes.”
