I'm hoping someone can give me some recommendations. My little boy has just started speech therapy. He's just over 2(26 months) and he only says a few words. He actually saw his speech therapist today, and she suspects him to be about a year behind right now overall. (As far as size, even more) Let me give you a mental picture of my little munckin. He's 30 inches tall and only 19 pounds. I've enjoyed my "little" boy, but i do want him to catch up. :)
I would love to get him some speech therapy-like toys that are reasonably priced to work with him. I saw a velcro folder(book)? that had farm animals in it. Imagine a manila folder, except thicker. I SOOOOO want to get this for him. Not only would it be great for teaching words, but it's a great quiet toy for church. I've looked and can't seem to find one like it, though. Anybody know what I'm talking about?
Does anyone have any recommendations at all, and not just for the velcro book. I've been looking around today and found a few things, but some of you may have some better ideas.
And just for fun here's some things I want to get for him.
Junior Helper Cleaning Set
I know this won't necessariily help him with speech, but he's always getting in trouble for stealing my broom and running around with it. (Only because he has the potential to break windows and so many other possibilities) I would love to have his own cleaning set for when I'm cleaning. His future wife will definitely thank me, too. :)
Pretend and Play:Rise and Shine Breakfast
I just saw this today at Muse Reviews and it looks SOOO cute. It has very good reviews, too.
Smart Snacks Counting Cookies
He's not even close to counting, but it doesn't hurt to keep trying.
Stand and Play Rampway
My hubby already has this for him for Christmas. So he does have plenty of "manly" toys. :)
My main concern is finding him some quiet, educational toys, especially if it could promote speech.
