Our Starter Treasure Basket has everything you need to begin using a treasure basket for babies:
- Hand-crocheted basket made with OEKO-TEX Standard 100 cotton yarn
- 12 unique natural wood and coconut shell items
- Branded cotton drawstring bag
- ‘How to use’ leaflet with tips and further information
Treasure baskets are perfect for babies who are sitting independently (from approx. 6-10 months of age) up to 18 months and beyond. And for this reason, they make the perfect half birthday (or six-month) gift.
The benefits of using a treasure basket include developing concentration – a baby can happily spend up to an hour completely absorbed by a treasure basket, grasping items, turning them over, mouthing them, banging them together – as well as promoting curiosity and decision making.
Using a treasure basket also sets the stage for independent play and it adds a moment of calm into a daily routine – giving parents the rare chance of a sit down while they watch their baby learn all about the world around them through discovering the contents of their basket.
Our natural items are especially curated to offer a wide range of sensory experiences – providing different shapes, textures, shapes, smells and sounds for babies to explore. And by handling and grasping a variety of different objects babies get lots of practise at developing fine motor skills and hand-eye coordination.
