My son loves to color… but when he tries to grab a crayon, he uses all five fingers on his hand.  I thought this will make a nice friend who can help him hold crayons correctly.

A  snug fitting socks with two holes for thumb and index finger.

Meal time was a big struggle for us, but he would open his mouth when I made train sounds or car sounds.   Meal time became less stressful for both of us.

Plastic spoon with animals, cars, dinosaurs, planes, action heroes, and etc.  (Why didn’t I think of this before!)

When our daughter was transitioning  into toddler bed, we were looking  for a  princess bed.  We  looked  everywhere but could not  find the one we liked.

We wanted a reasonably priced  non plastic bed frame.   If I would have seen this picture sooner, it would have been most helpful to us.

An old table turned up side down for a princess toddler bed.

My son loves  decorating Christmas tree and he loves to turn the lights on when it is dark outside.  He was so sad when mom had to put the tree away.  This will make a great alternative gift.

A light table made with Christmas lights and plastic container.

When my daughter was a toddler, we  looked for a doll house.    The doll houses  in most toy stores were too big or too tall.  I thought this was “just right” for toddler girls.

Toddlers need larger surface to paint, doodle, draw, and  have fun.   They  need to use  larger surface for  developing gross motor skills and  mastering  fine motor skills.

An old table with chalk  paint.

My boy loves to carry around his cars and trains!  There is not enough pockets on his clothes. Also, he is always hungry.  This shoulder strap will solve all of his problems.
