Fruits of Asia Junior Sensory Kit


Are you hoping to introduce your little one to more diverse topics while also practicing their fine and gross motor skills as well as their color, shape, letter, and number recognition? If you answered yes, then the Our Friends Afar Junior Sensory Kits are the product for you. This kit takes your little one on a sensory adventure, with a focus on an international and cultural topic.

In this kit, our main characters, siblings, Sunshine and Boomer, will teach your little one about different fruits you’d find in Asia. In addition to an Our Friends Afar book, your kit will include homemade colored salt and accessories to start incorporating the teachings.

This kit includes: a book about a specific cultural topic, homemade colored salt, six colored fruit manipulatives, tongs, detailed sensory instructions and ideas for play, an on-the-go activity, and coloring pages. As always, the instructions include cues for helping you to include diversity topics into your play.



All sensory items are taste safe. Parental supervision is required. 

This kit is intended for one child only. All sales are final. The recommended age range is two to four. Please note that if you subscribe to our Junior Sensory Kit subscription service, you save $4 a month.

Note: All of our products subtly generate talking points for you to discuss with your little one. Some of these points include: culture, race, diversity, language, geography, food, poverty, and kindness. The aim of Our Friends Afar is to teach children that although we are all different and unique, we are all the same. It’s our belief that open-minded and empathetic children lead to a more peaceful, loving, and connected future. THIS is our goal! Our Junior Sensory Kits are designed to expose your child to various topics while inspiring curiosity about others – be it their life circumstances, where they live, and more.

Feel good about your purchase. Ten percent of profits from all Our Friends Afar sales will be donated to RAICES, a 501(c) (3) non-profit organization that promotes justice by providing free and low-cost legal services to underserved immigrant children, families, and refugees. Did you know that immigrants facing deportation in immigration court do not have the right to a lawyer if they cannot afford one. No matter what your political views are, I am sure you feel the same: that is not okay; that is not America. I imagine you too are heartbroken for these separated families and children in detention centers. Hopefully our donations can play a role in helping these families and individuals.
