Shopping for kids that aren't yours can be challenging, but many people find it particularly difficult to find an appropriate present for children with special needs. As a gift giver you want to tailor toys and goodies to the kid's situation without always having to ask their parents the best items to buy. Toys"R"Us partnered with the National Lekotek Center to offer its shoppers in this situation a lil help with its toy guide for differently-abled kids.
The 55-page booklet that is available, free of charge, at the toy store has a toy selection guide with icons to show which items promote development in the following areas: auditory, language, visual, tactile, gross motor, fine motor, social skills, self-esteem, creativity, and thinking. Customers can also access the information online.
