If you love a child with autism, it can be extremely difficult to know what gift to get them for Christmas; it can even be a major source of stress, especially if you have been traumatized by Christmases passed! (haven’t we all?) I want to highly recommend Edwin the Duck -and not just for children with special needs, but for all children! While all kids love Edwin, autistic children are more likely to be drawn to him for a few reasons.
Because autistic children sometimes need a little extra comfort at bedtime, or in the middle of the night, Edwin is a lifesaver. His soothing and soft night-light and lullabies provide autistic children with both visual and sensory regulation during times of duress. Additionally, Edwin specifically appeals to autistic children as they tend to be extremely drawn toward to screen time. Edwin connects via Bluetooth to your iPad or iPhone and connects with free interactive and educational apps for both babies and preschoolers. Say goodbye to screen time guilt and hello to Edwin!
He is soft, virtually indestructible, and can go in the bathtub! He serves as a nightlight and gives off the most beautiful ambient glow. And it’s not just autistic kids that love Edwin; my one-year-old loves to chew on his head and smash him mercilessly into things, but Edwin doesn’t take it personally- and that’s why I just love him too!
The ONLY thing is… now I need two! I’m super excited to share my favorite autism-friendly products from my favorite site- Amazon! 😍 And I’d like to just say, I truly believe in only recommending products to my readers that I personally and authentically enjoy and find useful. My son got Edwin from my mom last Christmas, and a year later, here I am.. still talking about him. I hope he can bring your child or family member some joy this holiday, and some peaceful, silent nights 🙂 Merry Christmas!
