Toys "R" Us has published a new guide for buying toys for kids with disabilities. The free guide is available in Toys "R" Us and Babies "R" Us stores, as well as online at toysrus.com/DifferentlyAbled, beginning Sept. 3. The toy guide offers recommendations based on research from the National Lekotek Center, a non-profit organization based in Chicago that handpicks and tests the toys featured in the guide.
The toy guide also includes lists of questions parents should ask when buying a toy geared towards their child’s individual needs, as well as a directory with toys broken out by the skills they promote in areas such as auditory, language, social skills and creativity.
