Ideas on good sensory gifts

I know it's early but was wondering if anyone has any ideas as to good sensory gifts for my son. Jonathan is 3 1/2 and needs more sensory toys. I thought about a bean bag for squishies but can't think of anything else. He loves his feet massaged so if you can think of anything for his feet. I guess I am looking for ideas in general for Christmas for him. Just trying to get some of the stuff that he can use to help him focus

If he likes squishies, how about some stress balls or playdoh (if you dare!). 

Maybe one of those massagers that look like a stuffed animal, but will vibrate when you press on them (for his feet)?

Happy early holiday!

Go to Amazon.com and put in Penguin Race.  AMAZING!!!  I just got it for my 5 year old's birthday, developmentally he is 2-3.  He loves it!  It runs all on its' own, he watches and gets all excited, then he's ready to fucus again.  It's like his break between focus activities.  Love it!
