  • You can always talk with his parents or friends and see what he has really been wanting to have for his Birthday or Christmas. I'm there are tons of ideas and if you take the Down Syndrome out of the equation you should be just fine. :O) Best wishes.

  • I totally agree with first answer...

    doesnt matter if the child has down syndrome... It makes no difference. Every child loves toys. Get the baby whatever you would get a "healthy" baby too.

  • Toys! :) Fat Brain Toys has a wonderful selection of special needs toys. I use them often for my child. You didn't say how old the child is, but he may not even require 'special' toys.

  • Blocks! Just about every baby loves blocks. You can stack them, throw them, build with them. They're safe, no moveable parts and not small enough to choke on. Since he's a baby I would reommend the peek-a-blocks, which have things inside them like animals or things that make noise.

  • My uncle has down syndrome and he has always gotten close to the same thing as all of the other kids. Toys are good. My uncle is older now and we get him movies.

  • I think it depends on the child and their developmental age. Although I think something musical is always good... either that plays music or they can sing along.

  • Well, you didn't mention an age?? That would help. I usually buy age appropriate toys. ALL toys say on them what age they are for. I wouldn't worry so much about the Down Syndrome as much as I would worry about the age appropriateness of the toy. No "big boy" or "big girl" wants a baby toy. And their parents certainly don't want something that is wayyy to old for them (and may have small parts for them to choke on). Good luck!!

  • Talk to his parents or if you really know the baby get something that he will enjoy. Also you can't go wrong on books or educational toys.
