As a therapist, I tend to be armed with some pretty nifty toys at all times. In fact, I actually have a bag of toys that stays in my car all the time. My boyfriend, David, thinks this is a little nutty. In fact, he cannot fathom why on earth I would spend my good hard earned money on more toys for work. My Dad, on the other hand, seems to appreciate the fact that I often have some type of squishy, gooey, or visually exciting toy floating around in my car. So, I have decided that I should share some of my very favorites. All toys are linked directly to where you could purchase them.
For children who like visual things (like spinning, lights, etc).
Light Up Spinning Globe
Fiber Optic Toy
I also have a light up bubble blower--I bought it at Wal-mart and cannot find a picture of it.
For children who like squishy toys
Smiley Face Ball
Glitter Bead Ball
Inside out Ball
An example of sticky strechy toys
For children who like to pull
There are many many more toys I would like to add, but I would be here all day writing! Here are some catalogs that I order from:
Nasco Special Education
Oriental Trading Company
