Help me find a toy for my disabled brother

Hi everyone,
So i think we're officially stuck. My brother is severely disabled and lives with severe mental and physical impairment. Daniel loves his musical toys, however he throws them across the room when he gets mad so we need something sturdy. He loves holding musical toys up to his ear that should be hard not soft. Up until now he loved his ELC turtle but they were discontinued. We're desperate to find him something, any suggestions?
Anything would be appreciated!

    Hi @Isabelle4Daniel
    I am not sure where you can get sensory toys that play music. But have you tried the RNIB or Royal National Institute of Blind People at  ?  They have an online shop with a lot of different balls including some with bells in. Generally meant for blind people to locate the balls easier, but may be of use to your son
