Autistic Toys..Help!

My autistic child is 6 but, is really about the 4 to 5 year old age mentally.  Does anyone know any autisic toys  that might be interesting.  Or maybe an autistic toy site?  My child is not really verbal and we communicate through actions and signs.  Thanks to all who answer!

My son is not autistic, but is 7 and more on a 4-5 year old level.  I was stumped too and I posted here a post called "stumped" and got some really good ideas.  You might get some good ideas there, too.  And here's a bump for you!

My son is 4 and has autism. We got him a wooden train set, an innotab , a wooden activity cube , magna doodle and a play farm. He has to be engaged in doing something and likes to put stuff together etc so I'm hoping we did good this year. I looked online at younger kid toys to make sure I got the right age for him. You can search by age on Walmart, toys r us etc

My son is autistic as well...he's 4, but has the development of a 12 month old...I typically stick with toys in the age range of 12-18 months for him.  Hugs and good luck mama!
