Share your child's favorite toy for a Parents magazine guide

Yes, we're in the throes of back-to-school chaos and I am thinking about a holiday toy guide! That's because Parents magazine has an annual toy guide in their November issue (which comes out in October), and I'm collaborating with them on a section for kids with special needs based on parents' recommendations. The results will be featured on Parents.com and here, too.

The Holiday Toy Guide from two years ago where you first shared your suggestions was so helpful. So once again, please let me know about toys that have benefitted, motivated or simply encouraged your children. This can be a toy that's been around for years, or one that recently came out. Classic or new, it doesn't matter, as long as you genuinely feel the toy has been helpful, in some way, to your child with speech/communication, fine-motor or gross-motor skills, or sensory issues.

Note: We are looking for toys, not video games or apps (although they deserve their own guide)!

I've created the lovely form below. Just fill it out (it should take 5 to 10 minutes, max) click submit and voila! It will go to formland.

Thanks in advance for your help.



  1. Your blog is such a great resource for me and I look forward to seeing everyone's toy suggestions! Thanks Ellen!

  2. I can't wait to see this year's list! I've already started making a rough list of stuff that might work for Matt for Christmas.

  3. I am looking forward to seeing what makes the list. Lists like this make great inspiration for my home AT projects!


Thanks for sharing!
