In fact this is such a sensory experience that you are even encouraged to take off your socks – you are invited to experience tactile sensation and sensory overload!

You are also encouraged to touch, squeeze, feel and get right up close and personal with a variety of objects Feeling is sensory and this is a whole body experience.
