Who would love this: Kids who love keeping themselves busy with all sort of sensory activities 

I love puzzles, decoding secret messages, unlocking doors, and uncovering clues. This Medium Construction Sensory Board from Flax + Grove reminds me of a kid-version escape room: it’s a series of brain stimulating and dexterity challenges, one engaging activity after another, all beautifully incorporated in one pinewood board. 

Thank you Flax + Grove for gifting this sensory board to our little mystery solvers in exchange for this honest review. 

Why I love ❤️ this toy: 

(1) Quality Design - The 40cm x 40cm board is lovingly crafted with appealing sensory activities: LED flip switch, spirit level with liquid, tape measure with rubberised case, wooden 3-blade fan, secret “tools” storage case, door latch completes with padlock and keys, abacus with counting beads and rings, fidget spinner, wooden construction pieces (nuts, bolts, rods, and wrench) nicely organised in a wood holder. The kids were thrilled exploring and discovering the delightful surprises. They were mesmerised by the momentum of the spinner, the “light-up”, the unlocking challenge, and building activities. I love how the board incorporates a mixture of real gadgets and wooden sensory toys. It is aesthetically pleasing, attractive to kids, and of heirloom quality. 

(2) Handmade & Customised - Each board is handmade with love and care. Flax + Grove products can be customised and designed based on customer’s requests. We can choose from a selection of small cubes / travel bars, to small/ medium/ large boards. You can specifically ask for sensory objects that spin, shut / open, rattle, latch, slide, tap and [insert: let your imagination runs wild], or add an adjustable stand for the board. The friendly owners Jen + Ash will endeavour to make your dream comes true! 

(3) Supporting Local Artisans - Flax + Grove ships Australian wide and has a pick up point at Newport (Victoria). All doors, cogs, propellers, clock and abacuses are handmade and securely attached with industrial strength glue and screws. I love how it makes every efforts to support local artisans when items are outsourced. When you buy from Flax + Grove, you know you are directly supporting real local families.
