Jigglers by Abilitations are a Great Oral Motor Item for Toddlers

These “Jigglers” are cute and functional! Twist the bottom half and the Jigglers will vibrate adding an extra amount of oral motor stimulation. Great for toddlers who are teething or who love to mouthe toys!

Great Cause & Effect Toy for Preschoolers

This is one of my favorite toys for teaching cause and effect with preschoolers!  It also teaches skills like: putting toys in, pressing a lever, and turning a dial to make sounds.  When you push the lever down, the toy lights up and music plays at the same time one of the balls spins through the inside of the toy and rolls out of the bottom right in front of the child.  You can turn the lights and sound off to simplify the cause and effect to the lever and ball if you want.  However, kids usually love learning how to make the lights and music play!


Baby Safe Feeders are Excellent for Early Feeding Skills

These feeders are great for little ones learning how to feed themselves, but without the fear of them choking! You just open it up, place a small amount of food inside, close and latch the end, and let them start tasting.  Excellent for things like peaches, pears, steak, chicken, or even ice cubes (for teething)!

Awesome Fine Motor Toy for Kids

Sort and match the pieces by color and shape.  You can also work on counting each stack of colors!

Angel Wings for your Baby’s Head

Many of the families I work with are using these Angel Wings with their little ones.  The halo protects the baby’s head when they fall backwards so their head doesn’t hit the floor.  They have worked perfectly for the people that I know who have been using them!
