Creative KidStuff has partnered with St. David’s Center to raise autism awareness with special toys selected for kids with autism. Roberta Bonoff, CEO of Creative KidStuff in Minneapolis, said they were getting more and more parents and grandparents looking for toys that would be appropriate for their children’s needs. Sarah Reyman, a psychologist at St. David’s Center, worked with Bonoff to select toys that “encourage interaction, social and sensory skills, imagination, communication and problem solving. For example, a classic jack-in-the box teaches cause and effect as well as anticipation.” Creative KidStuff has a special section on their Web site for these special toys.
