Welcome to Nurture Smart!
We design and develop unique products to meet the needs of children at home or in the hospital. Our products range from our Nurture Smart line-up designed to meet rigorous clinical standards, to our art products designed for children with visual impairment, to our wonderfully creative sensory toys. Our mission is to provide extraordinary products that combine fun with sensory features to promote brain development and motivate physical activity.
Although our Nurture Smart products are designed to meet clinical disinfection, durability, and developmental standards, they are also perfect for home use. Our first product, the Nurture Smart Crib Mobile, is the most advanced crib mobile ever created. It was designed with input from healthcare professionals to include exceptional safety, child development, and comfort features. It is now the mobile of choice for hundreds of hospitals but many families are also enjoying the benefits of the mobile in their home nurseries.
In addition to our Nurture Smart products, we design and work with trusted suppliers to create products that will allow children with special needs to share in the benefits provided by developmental toys. These products include our exceptional Braille paint by number books and our multi-sensory plush toys. Our hope is that we can continually give the gift of play to children that traditionally had very few options. Please enjoy our website and thank you for coming!

What Makes a Great Toy?
Toys must be FUN FIRST but children are also engaged by, and attracted to, toys that provide multi-sensory experiences. Such features might include contrasting colors for visual stimulation, music, chiming or other sound producing devices for auditory stimulation, multiple materials for tactile stimulation, and various scents for olfactory stimulation. Sensory stimulation activates brain pathway growth and is critical to promoting healthy cognitive development. Toy features can also be designed to motivate children to reach out and explore their environment which encourages the physical activity necessary for the development of major or minor motor skills.
