Hi all,

Is there any chance that anybody here can suggest where to buy autism friendly sensory toys for two kids aged 4 & 5, from stores (online if possible) that are based or that trade in the U.K?

They are for my brother’s children. He does not have a large budget but has been instructed to buy sensory toys that are made with autistic children in mind and is at a bit of a loss. Absolutely open to second hand if there is such a source that sells them. Are there any stores, charities, brands, etc that anyone can recommend?

Some good stuff on there.

Not fully related to the orginal post, but on that online store: The bubble gun styled to look like a minigun (https://www.sensorytoyshop.com/bubble-gun-575-p.asp) is certainly an eye catching design

Buy this and spray-paint it pink? https://legitarmsdealer.com/product/minigun-for-sale/

I'm sure you can buy a bubble adaptor for it somewhere.

I really want to click on that link but I'm at work and logged on as myself, so I think I'll wait - or - do it on someone else's computer
