Irish Online Toy Store Provides Giving Options for Children with Autism and Other Disabilities

Posted: Tuesday, December 21, 2010 - 10:46


It can be very confusing to choose appropriate toys for children with autism and other developmental delays. Big Elf Toys, an Irish online “toy store” has made the task much easier. Not only are toys grouped by “activities such as manual dexterity, hand-eye co-ordination, creativity and imagination, the idea is to guide you through the shop with a toy expert holding your hand.” However, the toy expert is a senior pediatric occupational therapist – Andy the Elf. Andy writes a monthly blog and offers parent-feedback and advice on which toys worked well. In addition to Andy, the toy store employs three adults with autism. Right now the Big Elf inventory consists of 500 different types of toys, but they cannot wait to grow and expand.
