Play is a very important part of a child’s development, and is sometimes hard for kids like Logan.  She LOVES to play, but just has a harder time manipulating certain toys.  Feel free to comment and share what your kids like!  Please…I am ALWAYS looking for new ideas 🙂




Fisher-Price Brilliant Basics Stack & Roll Cups

We love this toy for so many reasons.  It works on stacking and counting, but we also use it to hide things in.  You can create several, or one big ball out of these.  We put farm animals in several individual balls and work on speech therapy with that.  Endless ways to have fun!

Melissa & Doug Magnetic Fishing and Bug Catching

This is great for and OT/PT combo.  I “catch” a puzzle piece with the fishing pole, and Logan has to stand up to take it off the rod.  Very simple, great therapy aid.

Universal Specialties Liquid Motion Timer

This is a great calming toy, as well as a cause and effect toy.  The bright colors and slow moving bubbles are very mesmerizing!  You can also use it as a timer.

LeapFrog My Pal Violet

This has been Logan’s favorite for forever!  Each paw has a button in it to activate a song, game, or programmable feature.  It has been so cool to see Logan seek out the paw she wants, and to see her little thumb search for and activate the button :). It comes in a boy version too, Scout.

Fisher-Price Bright Beats Dance & Move BeatBo

This sings, dances and lights up.  Great cause and effect toy, and also a great toy for any vision issues, like CVI.  Use it in the dark and it will be a hit for all!

Fisher Price Roll-a-Rounds Swirlin Surprise Gumballs

This was one of Jack’s first and favorite toys, and it has been great for Logan!  It is cause and effect, OT work and sensory fun all in one.  The first time she picked up a gumball and put it in with purpose made me literally jump for joy.  Ahhh, the little things 🙂

Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See?

Logan’s all time favorite book.  Great for literacy, learning colors and anticipating what comes next.


What I love most about this book is that it encourages finger isolation to pop the dot.  It also makes a fun sound when it is popped.  Jack had these, and all 3 kids love them.  Also comes in Farm, Safari and other themes.  The pages are thick too, which makes for easy turning.
