It’s that time again! EaZyHold's Inclusive Gift Guide! Games to Gadgets, Toys to Trikes, and Resources to Rock and Roll!

Gift Giving and the importance of Toys and Playtime for Kids of All Ages and Abilities.

Gift-giving to those with limited mobility, function, or cognition can be challenging. So the EaZyHold team polled parents and caregivers to come up with our favorite gift ideas for kids to adults, and even for your favorite Therapist or Special Education Teacher. 

Some of our favorite gift ideas can even be adapted with our soft silicone EazyHold handle to help expand your loved ones' abilities and gift options! 

All infants, children, and teens need toys and playtime!

Hi, I'm Kerry Mellin a designer of adaptive aids for people with disabilities. Through working with kids, I've learned that movement through play drives learning in children. 

That is why "inclusive toys"  or toy adaptions, serve a vital role in providing successful play opportunities for all children allowing them to control and actively explore their worlds by reducing and/or removing barriers to play.

Exploring an object, its visual appeal, smell, shape, taste, and sound fosters learning about the world and the child's relationship to it. 

On a social level, toys enable children to interact with others and participate by engagement. 

On an emotional level, the child will learn important empathy skills by seeing the reactions of others to their participation. 

On a cognitive level, playing with toys provides the necessary feedback for the baby, who will know immediately whether their intended movement was successful. Did it sound pleasant, taste good, feel good, or make someone laugh? 

And on a physical level, playing with toys promotes fine and gross motor skills, improves strength and dexterity, and enables the baby to reach new physical milestones. 

There are so many benefits of playing with toys:
* Increased levels of endorphins, encephalins, and alpha waves in the brain
* Increased dexterity and motor function skills (coordination)
* Increased problem-solving skills
* Increased confidence by learning independent play
* Decreased stress response at a cellular level
* Strengthened immune function
* Improved cardio and aerobic function
* Improved concentration
* Improved circulation
* Increased energy
* Decreased blood pressure
* Learn new skills
* Improved listening skills
* Boosted confidence

So many wonderful benefits of toys and expanding a child's toy box.
