    Would like to know where you can find toys for the handicapped child

    • Kathy Nied says:

      There are incredible folks at the John Heinz/Allied rehab center that modify toys for handicapped children.
      They are located in Wilkes-Barre, PA.
      Give them a jingle and they will provide the details.
      Best of Luck.

    I remember when my autistic son (now 19) was younger, the Toys ‘R Us website had a way you could search for toys by the child’s disability. EBay also occasionally would have toys listed as being especially suitable for autistic kids (usually being sold by the mom of an autistic kid who had outgrown them). Possibly a Google search for “(name of special need) toys” would also direct parents/grandparents to other sites which would recommend toys suitable for children with that particular disability.

    I didn’t see a spot for comments on your BF site.

    Costco online BF deals are now available.

    Also, I’m in the market for an external hard drive and the best deal by far is the 2TB Western Digital drive at Target for $69. That’s ~50% off current going rates for a 2TB drive and only $0.035 per GB.
