I promise buying a toy for an autistic child is not as overwhelming as it seems.

Tegu Magnetic Wooden Blocks
We LOVE Tegu Blocks.
They have magnets inside them that allow the blocks to 'snap' together and hold the shape of whatever is being built.
The blocks come in all different colors, sizes, and even kits to make certain objects.
They're seriously awesome. So awesome that I even have small sets that travel with us in the diaper bag to use at restaurants!
Water Beads Rainbow Mix
Sensory play just got a whole lot more fun.
Water beads are SO FUN to play with! In the summer, we add them to our water table for a fun twist on water play.
I do prefer to play with them outside, because if we get a bunch on the ground, they dry up (eventually) and then they sweep right up!
