Cause and Effect Toys
These special toys are almost always big hits as reinforcers. Perhaps the reason is that they involve the child doing something to get a reaction. That is a powerful, motivating thing for a learner and helps create a positive self awareness. And they teach the cognitive concept of cause and effect at the same time!
Our favorites here below have other excellent properties as well. Many are toys with parts, so they are useful for teaching language skills such as requesting (such as was demonstrated in the Early Learner video). Those that have parts that differ by only one attribute, say color or shape, are excellent for teaching labeling of those features as well. As always, click on the link to see the toy!
