Toybox Tools™

Hasbro, Inc. and The Autism Project teamed up to create ToyBox Tools™, a free, evidence-based, online resource where caregivers and educators can find tools to make play easier and more accessible for children with developmental disabilities. ToyBox Tools™ is a collaboration connecting evidence-based practices with classic Hasbro toys.

Teaching Play to People of All Ages and Abilities

ToyBox Tools™ can help children and adults experience the joy of play with three levels of tools available for those who need support: basic play, expanding play and social play levels.

Parents, educators and caregivers can visit the ToyBox Tools™ site, access the tools they need, download and print them for use at home, in the community or in the classroom. Each level caters to different aspects of play that children may need help with, like simply introducing the toy and how to use it, experiencing alternative ways to play with a toy and encouraging turn-taking with peers. ToyBox Tools™ recognizes that parents and caregivers know their child’s ability best and encourages them to use their judgment in selecting the right product and level of play appropriate for their child.
