Children love toys that go pop. Here are my top 10 favourite:
The toys below are all toys I use in my therapy sessions frequently. They're fun toys that can be used everyday at home to stimulate a child's development and communication or to motivate them with speech and language practice. If parents decide to purchase them for motivating their child during speech and language practice my advice would be to keep them in a separate box for use when you're targeting speech and language skills so that they don't lose their novelty factor.
Number 1: Bubbles
Number 2 : Pop toy such as 'Pig Goes Pop', ‘Jumping Jack’ or ‘Pop Up Pirate’.
Number 3: Wooden pop-up toy for toddlers
Number 4: Pop Up Friends
Number 5: Mr Funny Faces
Number 6: Push and go 'Pop Up' Vehicle
Number 7: Stomp Rocket
Number 8: Toddler Merry Go Round 'Push and Pop'
Number 9: Wiggly Worm Game
Number 10: Nose Poppers
