Purring Dreeble wants to be your friend!

This furry little Dreeble purrs contentedly when stroked with the slightest touch and shrieks when he's squeezed too firmly. Internally activated, this toy does not require a capability switch.

Teaching Pull-To-Stand In Three Easy Stages

1. Sit the child on a bolster, seat or small physioball in front of a steady surface to pull up on. The child's feet should be firmly planted on the floor.

Help them bring one foot forward first and then the other foot as they rise. 3. Then try starting from a sitting position. The feet must swing to the side, then the child moves to an all-fours kneeling position, and then pulls to stand. This activity helps children develop strong shoulder muscles and general stability. It is especially appropriate for children who have general developmental delays or Down syndrome.
