Over 175 Sensory Toys You Can Find At Dollar Tree

When you walk in the Dollar Tree, you most likely go straight to the toy section, right? There is a nice selection of sensory toys that pop up in calm down bins all over Pinterest, so you want to snatch those up for your kids. Well, do you check out the pet section, or the home decor, or cleaning supplies, or even the health & beauty section? You would be surprised to find out what you’ve been missing. But I’m about to share it all with you! There are at least 175 different sensory toys at Dollar Tree! Let that sink in.

I spent 2 1/2 hours at Dollar Tree today, while my parents graciously watched my boys. Otherwise, the trip would have lasted no more than 10 minutes…because that’s all my sweet little guys can handle in a store, without melting down. You know how it is! I had never actually walked down every aisle and inspected each item, so I’m assuming you haven’t had that opportunity either. That’s okay, because now you will know what to look for next time you need some sensory needs met.

To make it even easier, these are broken down into groups for you! 😉 Most of the items listed here are shown in the images – I tried to get pictures of them all! Let’s jump right in!

Oh wow! The I had no idea there were this many sensory toys at the Dollar Tree! Items are perfect for calm down bins, fidgeting, and meeting different sensory needs for my kids with autism. I found sensory toys for visual seekers, tactile seekers, and even some deep pressure therapy tools! #dollartree #sensorybins #sensoryplay #autism #senssoryprocessingdisorder
