With my son being autistic, he is very caught up in the digital world. His favorite activity is the computer. While he often plays educational games and watches educational children's programming online, he also views and plays entertainment only(still kid friendly) content as well.
As much as he loves it, he sometimes gets frustrated with the games if he does not win, and that always upsets me. I never want my child to be unhappy when I can help it, and although I don't always let him get his way, there is certainly no need for him to be upset by something that is meant to be fun.
That is why I try as much as possible to find toys and games that draw him away form the computer. I can always make him get off, and I do when needed, but I would much rather him do something else because he truly enjoys it, not because he is forced to.
With the holidays already casting their shadow, I am especially looking for great activities that are not only great for my son, but for all kids. I love sharing great gift ideas with all of you. I found a company that has some really fun toys, and I am excited to tell you about it.
MOTORWORKS from Manhattan Toy is so cool.
I got the Race Pace Power Pack 2.0:
I love that the Race Pace Power Pack includes accessories already.
He beamed with pride as he showed them to daddy, and that was so heartwarming. Even if that was the only pro(which it clearly is not), it would still be beyond worth it just for that moment.
He played with them until bedtime(it was evening when he got them, but still), and did not even think about the computer at all. I am so glad he loves a toy that is basic. It is entertaining and keeps him busy, and it doesn't need flashing lights, loud noises or WiFi to do so.
So many kids nowadays have all but abandoned the classic toys that we grew up with. This is a fun and updated way to bring them back. MOTORWORKS would make a great holiday gift for any young boy(or girl). My hubby even loves these and he is 44. If you are starting to gather gift ideas(or even shopping already), I highly suggest MOTORWORKS from Manhattan Toy.
Be sure to like Manhattan Toy on Facebook, so you don't miss out on anything exciting(especially with the holidays upcoming).
