Just wondering if anyone has any recommendations regarding places to get toys and things. Have just had a very bad experience with an online specialist retailer but find the big three (Rompa, spacecraft and tfh) a bit out of my price range!
I've come across some random things over the years that have been fab for my son (14, PMLD/complex needs, likes noisy things and fidget type things but still sticks everything in his mouth) - I have very fond memories of a gold Waterstones helium balloon lasted for almost a year - he didn't have the coordination to pull the balloon down to him but watched it for ages, and we'd give it to him and he'd hug it, loving the crunchy noise/texture then let it go and watch it move around catching the light! Have you got any stories or recommendations to share?
