About us

Welcome to Spectrum Toys

 

Our Story

Our names are Colin & Stephanie, proud parents of three loving children, one son & two daughters. Stephanie and our son David both have a diagnosis of ASD (Autism Spectrum Disorder). Over the years, we have come to understand what ASD is, through first-hand experiences, attending courses, reading books and online research.

In his early years, we noticed that David was having difficulties and started to miss milestones concerned with walking, talking & language. He also started to show behaviours like spinning, tiptoeing, flapping hands & making high-pitched sounds. 

As time progressed, he would find going out very difficult, and would have meltdowns, displaying anxiety or hyperactivity. David also struggles with communication, light sensitivity, audio sensitivity, hypersensitivity, smells, taste & textures.

We are so proud of David, no matter how hard he can find day-to-day life.  He is always loving, shows compassion to others and is, above all, a happy little boy.

We know how important sensory play can be. When we watch David playing with his sensory toys, he enters his own world, one free from his usual anxieties and frustrations. We can see the pure happiness that it gives him as his everyday worries disappear.

Our mission

We have started Spectrum Toys to help people with additional needs develop the physical and cognitive skills necessary to support learning, emotional development, communication and social engagement. We attach special importance to growing the ‘sense of self ‘, through the development of personal preferences and reducing anxiety. We keep as up-to-date as possible with the latest research and believe that the use of sensory toys & sensory box sets can very positively support these goals.

We aim to provide you with the latest & greatest sensory toys at competitive prices. We promise to continue to expand our product variety to bring you innovative toys & sensory boxes that provide sensory value.

Our unique sensory boxes provide you with the ideal gift/ treat for someone who loves sensory play. The box features a magnetic closing lid, and once inside, even the rainbow-coloured paper packaging will promote interest. Each box contains an informative brochure detailing the variety of products inside and a description of each individual product.

All our products on our website are c.e marked (Conformité Européene) and come from reputable wholesalers.
