Question - Gifts for 3 year old with Down Syndrome. Gifts for 3 year old with Down Syndrome.

Hi everyone.

I need help with purchasing Christmas gifts for a 3 year old boy with Down Syndrome.
I know he likes things that make a lot of noise, but I'm not sure that his mother would enjoy that non-stop.
Any suggestions?

Thanks so much!

Gifts for 3 year old with Down Syndrome.

The only way I can respond is to mention some of the toys that my three year old likes. Even if this child does have Down's, I really do think that he would enjoy some of the toys I mention below.

Maybe instead of things that make noise, what about things that make light up and make bright and cheerful colors? Not only is it quiet but it will keep his interest. I know that there are books that out there that illustrate Christmas or that sing songs that light up and play music. There are also toys out there that make noise but not too much that light up when they are played with...balls, dolls, etc.

How does his mom feel about TV watching? I know that "Veggie Tales" has some really great songs that my DD likes to sing along with (she is also 3). There is one in particular called "Veggie Tales: The Ultimate Silly Song Collection." The songs are really goofy, but harmless. My DD and her friends like to sing and dance around.

Just my . I hope that this helps.

I bet he would love the Elmo dolls that sing and dance. They are very cute and lots of fun for little ones.
As for the mother, I hate to say this, but....Oh well!! Kids get gifts that drive us crazy, that is one of the "perks" we get as parents. It is about the happiness we see in our childs eyes, plus we usually learn to tune it out.

Could you get him a learning game. I got my three year old dd last year the interact tv system. It has cards that set on the controler and then it hooks to the tv. It is a video game for little ones. It has all kinds of noises and tv characters. Like elmo and sponge bob.

I taught a small child with downs a couple of years ago, she was alittel older but liked to do things which involved an adult interacting eg make believe tea set, shop, Porbably not that different to most three year olds in that respect.
