We all have a variety of skill sets, and these inclusive toys finally reflect that!

From sensory objects to problem-solving games, open kids’ imaginations and developmental skills with these fun and engaging toys.

1. Sphero Specdrums

Sphero Specdrums

Sphero

This magical little device empowers everyone to make music regardless of their abilities. Sphero Specdrums turns color into sound and sound into learning. “How?” you ask. By creating an ingenious app-enabled ring that can sense color so you can assign any sound to it. It’s a great gift for anyone, but according to the creator of Sphero Specdrums, it’s particularly great for someone with low mobility as it requires only the tap of a finger to create music. On that note (pun intended), get ready to make the world your sound machine!

An exciting addition to the Barbie Fashionista collection means minorities and children who use wheelchairs can feel included during playtime with a doll that looks just like them! This little fashionista comes with a wheelchair that actually rolls, a working brake, a ramp, and plenty of style!
