Autism New Zealand Announces Endorsement of Logical Toys in Extraordinary Move to Support Members

Media Release - 11 November 2010

“Logical Toys has provided top quality educational toys and learning resources in New Zealand and Australia, since 1991 and we have awarded the Autism NZ endorsement for an impressive selection of their games and toys”.  Autism NZ’s Marketing & Communications Manager Jon Boyer announced today.  This is the first time Autism NZ has endorsed educational toys.

Autism New Zealand Inc. provides support, training, advocacy, resources and information on Autism Spectrum disorders including Aspergers Syndrome. Members include children, young adults and adults on the autism spectrum; their family/whanau; caregivers; and professionals who work within this field.

“Earlier this year our organisation began a rigorous assessment process to identify a range of toys that meet our specific criteria. This will enable us to provide members with a recommended range of toys that provide both teaching and learning benefits, plus are plain old good fun.  Logical Toys provided us with a wonderful range.”
Logical Toys Managing Directors - husband and wife team Heidi and Mark Heyman were thrilled with the confirmation of the endorsement announcement.  “We’ve been working extra hard to provide meaningful toy recommendations for Autism NZ.  One of our long term goals is to offer valuable learning resources and information specifically for children with special needs, - and in so doing we will expand the overall educational quality of our toys in New Zealand.” Said Heidi. 
“This takes us one step closer to achieving that vision.  We will continue working with Autism NZ and other learning organisations to add to our range of endorsed products”
