I need your help

Hi everybody,

I'm doing some research into making a sensory toy and I would very much appreciate some opinions from other parents with autistic children. It would be very befefitial to me if you could answer these questions.

What are they most important aspects of a sensory toy? (such as light, texture, sound)

Which sensory toys do you think are the most effective?

How much would you spend on a small sensory toy (like a fidget cube)?

Are there any gaps in the market/are there any specific products which you would like to see developed?

Which colours are most stimulating/relaxing in sensory toys?

What can be done to improve sensory products?


Thank you
