Fun and Function Review and Giveaway

Fun and Function is a site that offers a huge variety of items geared toward special needs children. Their selection includes toys and equipment for a variety needs, such as gross motor, fine motor, language and social skills.

As a special education teacher I am thrilled to find a site like this that gives parents the opportunity to find great products at great prices that will be beneficial to their children. Another thing that I love about this site is how easy it is to navigate. They break everything into categories that allow you to look for exactly what you need. And I think it's wonderful that they carry products that all kids would have fun with, so playing with siblings and/or friend is easy! They even carry some popular brands, such as Melissa and Doug.

Fun and Function was generous enough to send me one of their saddle scooters to try  with my daughter. While my daughter doesn't have any specific needs, I still see this as a fun a valuable item. When I first presented it to my 14 month old she had no interest. She didn't want to sit on it at all. Once we got her on though she loved it. We moved her around while she sat side saddle style and just had fun with the motion. Over the course of the next week or so I just left it in her toy room for her to explore. I was amazed and pleased to find that she became interested and even taught herself to step over and it on it in the straddle position. She is now even beginning to use her legs to propel herself forward.





Check out their huge selection to see how they really do have something for everyone! From scooters and trampolines to pencil grips and toys.
