Almost every child loves playing with toys, however children with special needs may need toys that are more engaging, help them learn more, and encourage sensory play. For that reason, we’ve put together a list of some of the best toys for children with special needs that will keep them entertained for hours and teach them valuable life skills.

 #1. Tumblin Monkeys

The game is best played by 2 or more siblings or friends. Kids place colorful sticks through the see-through and hollow palm tree. Then they pour the plastic monkeys into the palm tree and take turns pulling out the colorful sticks without causing the monkeys to fall. This game is not only fun but it helps with strategy and coordination.

 #2. Bilibo Child Seat
