Families With A Loved One On The Autism Spectrum Have The Perfect Go-To Gift For Upcoming Celebrations Or Just Because!
Simi Valley, CA (September 23, 2019) – Children are so different from one another and so are their needs. Even when choosing a gift. For those with loved ones on the autism spectrum, buying the right sensory toy is especially important. Autism Live interactive webshow has just released their annual Holiday Toy Guide. The 2019 Top Sensory Toy/Gift is Moosh-Moosh plushies.
“Download our guide and take it to the store,” recommended Autism Live host Shannon Penrod, a mom of a teen on the spectrum, during last year’s holiday guide webcast. The 2019 Autism Live Toy & Gift Guide will be featured at www.Autism-Live.com starting November 1.
A recommended autism toy can help a child build essential developmental skills as they play. They are safe, durable, and work well in the home, classroom, or in a therapy center. Sensory toys may help children with autism focus, calm down in stressful situations, or relax.
“This is huge,” emailed Sean Price, Executive Vice President, Chief Marketing Officer of Moosh-Moosh parent company MMG Brands to his staff. “We are the world’s softest plushie, adored by kids, tweens, teens and college co-eds. This 2019 Autism Live Top Sensory Toy/Gift Award fortifies all of the reasons why we offer the soft fabric characters that bring pleasure and comfort to so many.”
About 1 in 59 children has been identified with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) according to estimates from the Centers for Disease Control. ASD is about 4 times more common among boys than among girls. And it is reported to occur in all racial, ethnic, and socioeconomic groups.
It’s not such the toy/gift market but the travel industry that is recognizing a need to cater to families with autistic children and adults. Conde Nast Traveler magazine posted a story about airport lounges making air travel more accessible to passengers on the autism spectrum and individuals with other developmental disabilities.
“We want to make flying accessible to everyone,” noted Christina Cassotis, CEO of Pittsburgh International Airport. “This room is an opportunity for special needs travelers from children to adults to have a place to decompress and get prepared to fly.” Pittsburgh follows other airports from Atlanta to Ireland’s Shannon Airport in creating dedicated, calming spaces for passengers with autism and sensory sensitivities.
Parents and grandparents searching for the ideal sensory toy or gift can find these squishy, cuddly plush buddies at retailers including Staples, Walgreens, Michaels, CVS and neighborhood toy stores or online at moosh-moosh.com.
