Special Needs Toys

Toys for children with special needs vary across many categories based on age, developmental ability, and the specific needs of each child — from ASD (autism) to ADHD to developmental delays. While we do not have a specific section of Special Needs toys, many of our toys can be used to engage children with specific needs, whether they are visual, tactile, focus/concentration, developmental, or any other special needs.

Our play experts are happy to brainstorm with you to find a toy that meets your child’s special needs and assist with the development and engagement.

They also love messy exploration, so art supplies and sensory materials are perfect for these ages.

Tummy time strengthens neck muscles, hanging toys encourage reaching and gross motor development, colorful toys and rattles focus attention, and games like peek-a-boo begin the discovery of object permanence.
