Families With A Loved One On The Autism Spectrum Have The Perfect Go-To Gift!
About 1 in 59 children has been identified with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) according to estimates from the Centers for Disease Control. ASD is about four times more common among boys than among girls. And it is reported to occur in all racial, ethnic, and socioeconomic groups.
Children are so different from one another, and so are their needs, even when choosing a gift. For those with loved ones on the autism spectrum, buying the right sensory toy is especially important. Autism Live interactive web show has released its annual Toy Guide, and the 2019 Top Sensory Toy is the Moosh-Moosh plushies!
While at the Toy Fair last year, I saw so many plushies… the styles and designs are always changing. They are great to sit and snuggle with, use as a pillow, decorate a room, and they are a great way to relieve stress. Just by rubbing the soft fabric it has a calming effect.
A recommended autism toy can help a child build essential developmental skills as they play. They are safe, durable, and work well in the home, classroom, or a therapy center. Sensory toys may help children with autism focus, calm down in stressful situations, or relax.
“This is huge,” emailed Sean Price, Executive Vice President, Chief Marketing Officer of Moosh-Moosh parent company MMG Brands to his staff. “We are the world’s softest plushie, adored by kids, tweens, teens, and college co-eds. This 2019 Autism Live Top Sensory Toy/Gift Award fortifies all of the reasons why we offer the soft fabric characters that bring pleasure and comfort to so many.”
