How it works
Dimpl is the sensory learning toy by Fat Brain that helps your infant learn motor skills and sensory skills as they play. The Dimpl toy is five colorful silicone bubbles that can be pushed through to the other side of the plastic mount that the bubbles are embedded in. The toy can be played with by pushing the bubbles and it can be placed in your child’s mouth as well. All babies put everything in their mouths as that is the first step in their learning process, and the Dimpl is safe for kids as it is BPA free. Dimpl is an inexpensive way to entertain your baby and help them grow and learn.
Since the Dimpl is made for children who are six-months-old and older, it is almost impossible to keep the Dimpl out of your child’s mouth. Mouthing is the term used for how babies begin to explore their environment. Babies are quite smart when they are between the ages of six months and one year as they want to use all five of their senses simultaneously to learn. The Dimpl, in this way, was designed for your child to use all of their sense, including taste. As a result, the manufacturers created a BPA free plastic for when your child puts the Dimpl in their mouth.
Sight: The Dimpl helps stimulate your baby’s sight sense by being as colorful as possible. The five bubbles of the Dimpl are all different colors. The bubbles are colored yellow, orange, hot pink, green, and blue. The brightness of the colors, especially the hot pink, will attract your child’s eye to playing with the device. All of the colors pop even brighter because they are set against the white background of the plastic frame. These colors will excite your child’s mind and cause them to pick up the toy.
Sound: The Dimpl is not a noisy toy; however, your child will get to hear the movement of the silicone as the bubbles are pushed through the frame. The softness of the silicone sound will enable your child to safely explore sound without the risk of damaging their hearing or creating an annoying sound that will bother parents. The sound will also be created when your child pushes the bubble allowing them to experience cause and effect as they play with the toy.
Smell: Although the toy does not have a pungent smell, your baby may pick up on some scents of the materials especially when the toy is placed in their mouth.
Taste: The manufacturers of Dimpl knew from the get go that babies would mouth the toy. Although there is no taste to the Dimpl, your child can still use their mouth to explore the toy. It is chemically safe for your baby to place the toy in their mouth. The bubbles are made of 100% food-grade silicone, which means that the silicone is non-toxic. Food grade silicone is used in cooking molds and will not leave behind any harmful chemicals or materials that may cause illness, so if your baby mouths on of the bubbles, you can rest assured that they will be safe.
Touch: The biggest learning experience of the Dimpl is the tactile learning and motor skill development it offers. These two experiences are truly what makes the Dimpl such a good buy for babies because they will spend minutes if not hours of time flipping and playing with the toy as they learn how to build their hand and arm muscles, their dexterity, and fully understanding cause and effect of actions matched with results.
Motor Skill Development
When your baby starts to mouth the toy, they will then develop the knowledge of knowing the difference between what can be placed in their mouth and what cannot. They will savor food and begin not to savor toys, but the Dimpl is safe for them to put in their mouth so it is a great way for your baby to learn with this sense and stay safe.
