The Family Fund has granted £250 for "specialist toys". Can anyone recommend good sites/ideas? smile

I've been looking into this for my ds 3.5 with develpmental age of around 2.

How old is your dc and what developmental age is the child in terms of language, fine motor and gross motor?

whoops - sorry saw he is 3.6 so ignore that part of my question!

I get loads of sensory toys from prices range from 50p to hundreds they have something for everyone and deliver in a couple of days, my dd is particularly fond of hairy horace and has one in every colour!!!!!

We've used a few times and found them to be very good.

Hi again,

I would say she is behind by 1year gross motor, 1-1.5 years fine motor (can draw a vague circular motion), and around 8 month+ language, possibly more.

Those website addresses are great. I just don't want to blow the money without getting it right.

I've heard that swimming and trampolining (sp?)are great for gross motor skills. I'd love to get my ds a trampoline - will be one of my first purchases when we move out of our flat to a house with garden

Once you've got the stuff please can you report back on what works as your dd sounds just a bit more advanced than my ds [copycat/lazy emoticon]
