Jan 16, 2014 - 11:55:25 AM

( - Huntsville, AL -- Jan 16, 2014  -- Children with special needs often require unique toys and children's items that are geared towards children with special needs or that provide developmental benefits. Parents and caretakers of children with special needs look for items that help their kids overcome everyday challenges. Appropriate items may not be easy to find but the right products will help make life a little bit easier and allow your child to develop and grow. Baby Dipper founder Barbara Schantz invented a children's bowl that makes it easier for children with special needs to learn how to self feed. Schantz has received positive feedback from parents of children with special needs and now she has compiled this list to further help parents and caretakers find unique and useful products for their children.

1. Baby Dipper Bowl

The Baby Dipper bowl makes one-handed feeding of babies and toddlers easy for parents. It has also come to the aid of children with special needs or other self-feeding issues. Children can see through the transparent sides of the bowl and concentrate on getting the food onto their spoons and into their mouths. All users of the Baby Dipper feeding set avoid the frustrations of chasing the food around the bowl and the bowl around the table. Winner of this year's Huggies MomInspired Award!

4. HipperBib

This kerchief style bib is as fashionable as it is functional: designed to capture drool and still look cool. The creation of the Hipper Bib was designed by a mom whose son has Angelman Syndrome, which causes him to drool. After searching for special needs bibs, drool bibs, and fashionable bibs, she decided to come up with a unique bib that had all of these features. A bib that would complement his clothing and, in turn, not draw attention to the fact that he was wearing a bib, therefore, maintaining his sense of dignity.



5. PullyPalz

Pully Palz are the first ever baby toys that actually help babies retrieve their own pacifiers, plus they offer developmental benefits for baby! They're interactive and entertaining to keep baby distracted and helpful for parents who no longer have to play the "pacifier game." The innovative and developmentally beneficial toy teaches right/left brain coordination, cause and effect and hand-eye coordination.
