Yellow Door: Sensory Play Animals. These beautiful sculptures will charm the children with their tactile nature and are ideal for sensory play. The set consists of eight figures: a bear, an owl, a bird, a whale, a fish, an elephant, a mouse, and a rabbit (measuring between 26-75mm high). Once discovered, the animals can be sorted and matched by different criteria, including colour, habitat, and characteristics, promoting language and discussion. Why not design and build habitats for the animals: a nest for the bird, a river for the fish, an icy ocean for the bear. Children will enjoy creating a personality for each creature, making the set ideal for storytelling activities and small-world play. These engaging animals will be a great springboard to learning more about life in the wild, what animals are in your own environment and how the children might better care for them. Each piece is created from our unique stone mix and can be used outside. Age 2+.
- Contains 8 play animals made from a stone/resin mix
- Size between 26 – 75mm

Passionate about play
Play is at the heart of everything Yellow Door do. As a publisher of award-winning, multi-sensory resources we believe that helping you to offer language-rich play environments is the best thing we can do together to enhance children’s learning, their wellbeing and their future success. Our range includes tactile resources, books and educational apps for children in the EYFS and those with SEND.
If we want children to be playful learners, we think we should set them a good example. At Yellow Door we have a lot of fun creating products and we love a challenge – whether it is working out how to create things out of stone; finding new materials to print on so our resources can be used outside all year round; or developing new features for our interactive software such as the facility for children to record their own stories.
Caring about quality
We work very hard to ensure the resources we create are properly fit for purpose. Take our Alphabet Pebbles, for example. Children love collecting pebbles and so we were excited when the very inspiring Helen Bromley first suggested this idea to us. However, we soon discovered it posed a challenge too. If you put anything on the surface of a stone, it can be ground off, especially when used in sand (just think for a moment about how sand is made). And who wouldn’t want to play with pebbles in the sand? So, our pebbles are specially cast with the letter shape engraved into the surface of the stone and paint applied to each indented letter by hand. We’ve been making them that way since 2008 because there is no other way to create a product that has all the natural appeal of real stone and will stand up to rigorous use throughout an early years environment. This means limitless play possibilities for the children and the complete reassurance of a durable product for you.
We are proud to be a member of BESA (British Educational Suppliers Association) and as well as abiding by their Code of Practice, we continue to take an active role in BESA’s Early Years Special Interest Group.
