Hi, for christmas I want to buy my 2 year old son with cp some disability toys that we see in his development centre and I have ordered a catalogue but cant seem to find what I want, has anyone bought any special toys and if so is there anywhere you can recommend?
Thanks :)

    Hi

    Fledglings have a reasonable range of toys for special needs. If you go onto ebay and put in 'special needs' there are shops on there with SN toys. I am sure there are other outlets.

    A lot depends on your sons level of movement and understanding. My grandson is also 2 and has loads of toys and equipment. Some more successful than others!

    Hi,
    We use a company called TFH who are reliable and have a good selection, but we also have an excellent OT who is more than happy to help us find specific toys that are suitable. I usually drop her an e-mail about what development I hope to achieve with the toy and what space I intend using it in (house/ garden) and she will send me websites or pages from catologues.
    You should also take a look at the Cerebra website, they review various special need toys and equipment on there.
    happy shopping
    Charlotte
