One in fifty-nine children in the U.S. has an Autism Spectrum diagnosis. Boys are four times more likely to be diagnosed with an Autism Spectrum Disorder. These are children who need great toys that are not only fun to play with but can also help them grow and develop important skills. This holiday season, Autism Live, a unique website for Autism Community covering more than 102 countries, has curated a list of top toys and gifts in a wide range of categories and developmental levels to help you find the perfect gift to delight the children, teens and adults in your life who are on the Autism Spectrum.

Hape Walk Along Snail won The Best Toddlers Oldie but Goody Award. “The Walk Along Snail does double duty as a great shape sorter and a perfect pull toy. Develop fine motor skills with quality wood toys in eye pleasing colours.”

Hape Shake and Match Shape Sorter was awarded the The Best Toddlers Sensory Toy award. “Shape-sorters are an essential learning toy. They teach a variety of skills from hand-eye coordination, matching, colours, cause and effect, problem solving and more. This well-made Shake and Match Shape Sorter from Hape® is an award winner because of the clever addition of flexible cords that keep shapes in unless you shake. Parents love this design upgrade, for easy clean up and more interactive play!”
