Birthday present (blind child)

Recommended Posts

JasperAliBenji

Just want some tips/suggestions of a birthday present for a blind child. Not sure (besides the obvious) if there are certain things you shouldn't buy eg. Colouring in books??
I was thinking a book that can talk the theme for the party (The invitations) were paw patrol so I assume that's what his interested in... 

 

thanks in advance :)

As a parent of a child who has vision impairment things with noise or textures are good, such as plays dough, slime, magic sand is a good option. Also musical instruments,

I’m assuming he’s 3-6 years old given he likes Paw Patrol. I’d go with kinetic sand and a heap of tools to go with it. Or sound blocks- they’re often rainbow and lovely looking but there are sets that make 10 different sounds and can be stacked and almost played like an instrument.

Or a musical marble tree? They’re good fun!

 

Or a Paw Patrol costume?

Sorry, off topic, but I’m so glad that they brought back Fridge Phonics!

We bought a set over 10 years ago and I was looking to buy one for a friend’s child a few years ago and the only place I could find them listed was Toys R Us, but the didn’t ever have any stock and finally cut them out too.

It’s too late for anybody I know at the moment, but my kids loved it and they were learning at the same time.

Ours was old and plain square shaped, like the one in this 

but I presume the new shaped (well, not that new as I’m sure it was apple shaped when I was looking to buy it a few years ago) does the same things.

 

They’re fantastic if anybody with young kids was wondering.
