Toys "R" Us

Autism Light #8 is Toys "R" Us.

Toys "R" Us (NYSE: TOY) is a corporation with headquarters in New Jersey.  They specialize in children's goods and are both Autism Speaks donors and distributors of autism friendly products.

Supporter:  Toys "R" Us generously raised over $3 million dollars during this year's campaign for the benefit of Autism Speaks. This is the continuation of a National Partnership with Autism Speaks that began in 2007.

The following is a video for the "Be a Hero" campaign that promoted the message that the real heroes of autism are benefactors and researchers and also those with autism, their family, teachers, and care providers.  It features the musical skills of Jodi, a girl with autism.

Autism Friendly Toys: One of the other ways Toys "R" Us help with autism is they publish a Differently-Abled Toy Guide that helps select toys that may be meaningful for children with autism. In addition, Toys "R" Us has obtained exclusive rights to sell the Keepon, a toy to help with autism therapy.  See this video on Keepon. 

Social Media: You can follow Toys "R" Us on the following social media. 
Special thanks to Toy "R"Us for being an Autism Light through their giving and autism friendly product designs. They are making a difference for autism year round.
