The list author says: "While not all children on the autism spectrum are the same - any more than typical kids are alike - many enjoy music, cause and effect toys, lights and lining up or spinning objects. My daughter is physically disabled but other children with autism often enjoy and benefit from bouncing and spinning as well as swinging. My family often had a hard time buying gifts for her that weren't variations on a theme (one more CD, etc.) These are toys that my daughter enjoyed as a young child."
"My daughter loves Disney princesses so these sound & music books are great. There are others featuring different characters (Cars, Thomas, Barney, Sesame Street, Dora, etc.)The hand held music player with a little digital (pixel) screen was an added bonus"
