Mom-made Toys is the brainchild of Saowapa Teeraprechakul, the mother of a child with special needs. She noticed that her son, who had few toys he could play with, loved the sound of plastic bags when he played with them. She and some other moms in Thailand began developing toys that could be used by children with autism, children who are blind, and children with cerebral palsy. They got the interest of Plan Creations/Plan Toys to create 20,000 toys in their first lot. Mothers of kids with special needs were the ones asked for input as the toys were designed. For example, toys for kids with autism are round discs shaped like heads that display different emotions. For the vision-impaired kids, there are dominoes with Braille numbers. Finally for youngsters with cerebral palsy there are weights to help them build up strength. Plan Toys makes all its toys without harmful chemicals and in adherence with international safety standards.
