Autism Sensory/Fidget toy shops

My best buys for sensory and fidget toys are usually in the $2 shops – but for more specific items, here are some more (mostly) Australian shops.

Here is a good list of fidget toys.

Australian Geographic – lots of interesting little bits’n’bobs.  Browsing the stores are better than navigating their website (no “sensory” category).

Autism Advisory and Support shop (NSW, shipping $12).

Educational Experience (NSW, shipping $14.20+). No specific “Sensory” category, but a search returns many sensory products.

Foss education (NSW, shipping $12.50).

Indigo Toys (Qld, shipping calculated at checkout).

iQtoys (Qld, shipping $7.99).

Modern Teaching Aids (NSW, shipping $12.90 – though orders can be phoned through and picked up at the Brisbane outlet store). No specific “Sensory” category, but a search returns many sensory products.
