On Wednesday, Toys”R”Us® released of the 2015 Toys”R”Us Toy Guide for Differently-Abled Kids®, an easy-to-use toy selection resource for those who know, love and shop for children with special needs. This annual, complimentary publication is available now in Toys”R”Us and Babies”R”Us® stores nationwide and online, in both English and Spanish, at Toysrus.com/DifferentlyAbled. The Guide showcases specially selected toys that aid in the skill development of children who have physical, cognitive or developmental disabilities. Over the years, Toys”R”Us has worked with many celebrities who have served as the ”face” of the Guide. This year’s cover features Nick Lachey, father of two, philanthropist, multi-platinum recording artist and television personality.
Because all kids are unique, regardless of ability, toys are not categorized by disability or by age. Instead, symbols are assigned based on different skills, such as Auditory, Language, Social, Creativity and more. There is also an easy-to-use toy selection index that sorts toys according to the skills they help develop, so parents can quickly find playthings that most benefit their child’s growth and learning.
