Therapy Toys

20170611_140233A common question that I get asked is where can parents get toys like mine for their children. I’m not actively looking for specific toys, I just casually browse where ever I am to see what they have. If I find something, great! If not, next time. If I am looking for something specific, I can usually find it on Amazon. I don’t purchase my supplies from a catalogue or a teacher’s store, as those can be very expensive. Here’s a list of places where I find my supplies:

  1. Amazon
  2. Target
  3. Zulily
  4. Ross
  5. Marshalls
  6. TJ Maxx

 

Toy Review: Stacking Wooden Chunky Puzzle

This is my new favorite toy. I love everything from Melissa & Doug, they seriously make the best toys. I found this puzzle at Marshalls for $8!! It goes for $20 on Amazon. I get a lot of my toys at Ross, Marshalls, or T.J.Maxx.

All of my kids had trouble stacking it: they kept turning the bears 180° instead of 90°, which makes it great for hand-eye coordination practice! So far, they’ve all loved to match the colors. This toy is a hit with my kiddos! I highly recommend it.

I love buying new toys! Every time I’m in a store I can’t help but check out the toy section. I especially love going to Ross or Marshalls for toys. Their toys are so simple and perfect for my early learners.

I bought these puzzles for a couple of my kiddos that need to learn sign language. It gives them something to do instead of using flashcards. These puzzles are great for many skills:
1. Hand eye coordination.
2. Matching
3. Receptive language
4. Expressive language
5. Fine motor

My kids love it.
