Toys”R”Us has unveiled its 2012 Toy Guide for differently-abled children. The guide lists toys for people who shop for children with special needs. The list is published in English and Spanish and is available at all Toys”R”Us® and Babies”R”Us® according to their press release.
On the cover of this years list is Nancy O’Dell and 8-year-old Saskia Vogt who has Down syndrome.
“I have a strong personal connection and commitment to the special needs community, so I am proud to partner with Toys”R”Us in supporting this valuable resource,” said Nancy O’Dell. “Growing up, my best buddy was my Aunt Ellen, who was born with Down syndrome. Because of my memories of her, to this day, she remains my inspiration for promoting inclusion for individuals of all abilities. In raising awareness of the Toys”R”Us Toy Guide for Differently-Abled Kids, I hope to help moms, dads, aunts, uncles, siblings and friends of differently-abled kids create magical play moments like those I shared with my own Aunt Ellen.”
