Our toy set for toddlers with autism features fun and educational toys that make great gifts. Toddlers will love learning new skills as they play with the following items:
Let’s Go Shape Sorter
We chose this item because it can help develop a variety of skills including fine motor development, hand eye coordination, and simple shape recognition. Each shape separates into two pieces so you can also work on matching. You can turn this into a simple social skills activity by taking turns placing objects in the sorter. Taking turns is an important foundational communication skill because one can not hold a conversation if they don’t know how to take turns. Also this toy is compact and portable, making it easy to take while visiting family.
Pop and Slide Shelly
We love this turtle themed developmental toy. It’s great for building fine motor skills, hand eye coordination, provides tactile sensory stimulation, and encourages visual thinking and concentration. Under the shell of this turtle are several moving discs that you can slide from hole to hole. It sounds simple but it is very entertaining for young children and makes a great travel toy.
Calm Down Time
Young children on the autism spectrum face many challenges. This simple board book teaches several self calming strategies that will help your child for a lifetime. Practical tips in the back of the book will help parents too.
Topsy Turvy Snuggle Cow
This adorable cow themed 12 x 12 inch lap pad is a multi-sensory treat. It features a variety of textures young children can explore and manipulate. It’s great for providing easy sensory play at home or on the go. Ears crinkle, the leaf is a BPA plastic that can be chewed, several extra tags are sewn in to touch and explore, and so much more.
Miniland Sand Clock
This cute pixel themed timer features several textures that young fingers will love to explore. It’s made of all FDA food grade materials that can withstand aggressive teething, and it’s dishwasher safe.
