Most parents know that they need to help their kids learn how to walk, talk, read books and master the fine art of potty training. If you’re a parent of a child with autism, you have probably discovered that your child also needs to learn how to play, unlike other children who learn how to play naturally.
If you have kids, grandchildren, nieces, nephews or friends with kids, chances are you’ve shopped for a birthday gift or two. Depending on how well you know the child, choosing a gift he or she will love isn’t always easy. And it’s also important to keep the parents and their living situation in mind, too.

It is no secret that, when it comes to choosing a new toy for your child, you have an overwhelming amount of options. Whether your child likes to play with action figures and dolls, puzzles and board games, or even building toys like Laser Pegs or Legos, the fact that they have all of these different options for play is a great thing for parents, toy manufactures and toy shops. In the end, more options for play means more options for learning, which is what everyone wants!
We were happy to donate $229,000 in toys to the children of BGCA.
While we here at Laser Pegs love to create inspiring, engaging toys to entertain children all around the world, it has also always been an important goal of ours to create toys that are just as educational and stimulating as they are fun! After all, educational toys not only keep your kids inspired and engaged, but they also promote development, teach problem solving skills and prepare your child for elementary learning.
I’m a big fan of toys that can be used in more than one way and inspire children to think outside the box. Promoting imagination is one of the most important duties of being a parent, as imagination is the one thing that can really take you anywhere in this world. Continue reading →
Parents of autistic children sometimes have a complicated time when trying to choose a toy for their child. They want a toy that their child will treasure and enjoy, but one that is able to serve as an educational tool. But since there is a full spectrum of children with autism, no one child is alike. Below are an array of options to consider when buying toys for autistic children.
If your family is like many families out there, you probably juggle multiple schedules between work, school, sports and other extracurricular activities. Busy schedules can make it difficult for some families to even sit down at the dinner table together on a regular basis. It is important, though, to find time to spend together as a family, and working on creative activities can help bring you closer together.
If you are a parent or educator who is in search of engaging activities for kids who have been diagnosed with ADHD (attention deficit hyperactivity disorder), you may want to consider spending more time outside the home or classroom and adding building or construction toys to your kid’s toy box. While some research has shown that kids with ADHD can stay engaged while playing video games, there is some concern that the repetitiveness of these games may actually encourage ADHD.
