The 30 Top Mom Approved Therapy Toys for Kids

Therapy toys for kids are a great choice this holiday season

Here are my favorite therapy toys for kids. My goal was to find toys that meet all kinds of sensory needs – both sensory input and sensory avoidance. This list has the perfect toy for your special needs child, from body socks to kinetic sand. I hope these different toys benefit your little kids and older children in a fun way. 

Unique Sensory Needs and Sensory Toys

Sensory processing disorder comes in all shapes and sizes; everyone has unique goals and needs. I am most familiar with sensory needs because of my neurodivergent children. From ADHD (ADHD Approved Gift Guide here) to autism spectrum – we have all kinds of neurospicy happening over here.

So, I know extra sensory needs create the need for therapy toys for kids at home, and I am always searching and researching tons of ideas on how to create a safe space for the whole family.

It’s hard sometimes. Everyone is always working on specific skills such as social skills, language skills, hand-eye coordination, fine motor skills, gross motor skills, and so on.
