Creative parenting expert Nikki Bush talks about the types of sensory toys parents can buy for their kids this festive season.

Creative parenting expert Nikki Bush provides another installment of the toys children will get the most out of this year, especially "sensory" toys, designed to engage your little one.

She says children are asking for sensory toys that are squishy and can be transformed into different shapes.

Bush speaks about the Putty Peeps Mixing Lab which speaks to the sensory desire or the need for sensory input through the skin the muscles and the joints.

Putty Peeps Mixing Lab comes with sachets of concentrated colour. So kids get to mix the colours and add some special effects and mix and stretch to their heart's desires. They can create their own putty peeps.

Putty Peeps Mixing Lab is available in major toy stores for R259.
