Grandson who is now living with us has rather a bad stammer...i have been to speech therapy with him and they suggest 'special time' but i need appropriate toys, which i never thought to buy as my son wouldnt touch them! I need jigsaws, playmobil, farmsets and the like...if you have anything let me know and a price please? as cheap as possible!
Can poss collect if north west or can courier if a lot.
Must be clean, non-smoking home thanks!!!

I might have a few things which I can probably photograph tomorrow as my son is in bed- where in the Northwest are you?

Forgot to ask how old your Grandson is?

Have an underground Ernie 50 piece jigsaw still sealed from xmas that my son wont play with. I may have a few other used jigsaws but had a massive clearout before xmas so won't have much. Whereabouts are you?

we do have books fom my guy as hes 7...so we got all chalie lola, noddy, you name it-i specifically need toys...but thanks so much for trying to help me:thumbsup:

too far from me- shame as I sold an absolutely massive box of allsorts-jigsaws, games etc on ebay before xmas for only £2- would have rather give it to someone that needed it. Have you tried local charity shops- they often often have lots of childrens jigsaws for only £1 plus lots of other toys. I would personally look there first as alot of things are nearly new.

I will have a look whatelse I have and then photograph them and weigh them. Probably not worth it for one jigsaw tbh. Will go and have a look now as he will be flat out :-D

you could try making your own jigsaws until the snow clears. Basically cut out pictures from mags, old photos, print off pictures etc and cut into squares.
Also try the cbeebies on the bbc website great for games that you could do together.
Also the tray memory game, put 5 items on tray and take one away.
Also when my little girls was having speech theraphy they sugested making a postbox and print of clip art pictures to post. Before the post it in the box they have to say what it is in the correct way. she loved this game.
Failing that some paper and crayons from the supermarket.
Hope these help until you can get round the charity shops and hope he settles soon

Hi you know alot of children do grow out of stammers, it is very common with his age range.

I have a couple of things that may interst you, my son got it for his 4th birthday just before xmas. its a lego duplo fire engine with figures and it makes noises etc.
£18 delivered

same as this one if you go on ebay home page and type in number.
360196764750

literally only selling as he already has it.
These are great toys as there are so much in this range that can be added too. My son has lots of different ones.

Have some Mr Potato Head's which I bought from the Disney store which have been played with twice- don't know if these would be of any use? I would like £5 for these

An Alphabet Large floor jigsaw from Mothercare suitable for ages 3+ £2
http://i301.photobucket.com/albums/nn58/sarahkenny_2008/DSC05116.jpg
2 Large Orchid toys Farm and Tractor jigsaws age 3-6 years (boxes a bit battered but still and biro on the back of some pieces- but complete and ok to use) £1 each
http://i301.photobucket.com/albums/nn58/sarahkenny_2008/DSC05118.jpg

Brand New Underground Earnie jigsaw sealed £2
http://i301.photobucket.com/albums/nn58/sarahkenny_2008/DSC05119.jpg

Postage for the 4 jigsaws would be £7.06 , if you wanted the Mr Potato Heads also I will do everything for £17 delivered

Postage on these items would be by standard parcels which seems to be the cheapest service. You may be better going on play or amazon and getting brand new jigsaws for £3 each with free delivery

Done that before for someone but threw my printer away so had to pay to use the library and then the parcel receipt printed out all wrong then time ran out, plus finding a box to fit the dimensions was a nightmare- had to hack one up then use nearly a whole roll of tape securing it again- far too stressful :-D

My great neice had a stammer, also had other communication probs when her parents split, my neice was recommended to use glove puppets/ puppets in role play/ story therapy, it really worked for her, improved her stammer, vocab and self confidence, she's just started school full time and is a different child.

Good luck

He might have an empty toy box at the moment but he has got the best grandparents a child could possibly ask for.:-D

I will see if I can do anything to help also and get back to you.

Firstly the LO has had a stammer for a while..he spoke late and then developed it around age 3...we are now seeing a stammer specialist-i pushed a lot! she suggested this and toys rather than books etc...his vocabulary is full and varied, speech still unclear but the stammer is awful, last night 18 cococococococo before he said cos....his confidence is amazing-hes a little darling-i wish i could show you lovely guys his pic as hes so handsome too(i would say that even if i wasnt his nanna!) with beautiful big blue eyes and long lashes-he has the sweetest loving nature too-and is always kissing and cuddling! Just want you all to know hes doing well and the stammer is not due to stress..infact he is a happy little guy 24/7!!

i have a Mr Potato head in the wardrobe i never thought of using that!! will get that out...thanks sarah but you're right it would be less to buy from play.com etc...im going to look there and amazon later...and collect+ is ok but took over a week for one of my parcels!! i want stuff NOW lol...this snow aint moving....

thanks everyone else who suggested websites...my ink ran out last week and i bought new just need to find them...and im usually methodical but ive got a bit mixed up lately lol
superskilly the younger two little siblings live in Blackpool now with dad so we go up there quite often...so if you had anything i could collect...but it really is like playmobil etc type playsets...the duplo is fab and a good price just another vehicle...i need a hospital/school/farm/shop you know?
clothes hes ok right now and my guy is just a little bigger so he will be ok i think short term anyway!

Bossyboots you're lovely but unless you work for our local Child services and can get them moving there isnt a lot can be done...i would love to go in there and blow the place up (joking!)
I am going to see if they can help me anyway...they havent yet but maybe we have a toy library...worth a try?

But i do appreciate all your help guys xx

I have a Disney Cars Lightning Mcqueen that you can change his wheels and face etc, think its called change up mcqueen, will try find a link, or get a piicy on, anyway if you would like it you can have it for the postage cost. Would be £3 max I think as not too heavy, let me know if interested and will weigh it for exact postage.:)

Freegle never heard of it :) But that sounds good, havent really got any playmobil to part with atm as thats what my boys are into. Not saying they don't have too much, lol.. but they do play with that :)
Have a lego truck thing but proper lego brand new never opened, but i don't know maybe too old for him? Might be too fiddly.
I will let you know if i have anything else, as i do clear out every now and again, usually have a good clear out in summer too (as well as spring / summer and autumn - and the weeks in between! lol
However yes if you want anything collection is fine, what area of Blackpool do you come to?

Change up mcqueen will hopefully be with you in the morning. Playmobil is a LOT easier than lego, my LB had the lego city police station from santa, spent hours putting it together, he didn't want to build it, just play with it, wish i'd known that bit first! Sure your happy at the £3, will glady refund the diff, just glad to see it go to a good home.:-D

absolutely i didnt expect anything for free just with being snowed in thought it would be quick getting things by post! also i have a lot of stuff to get rid of and its good if it goes to a good home:thumbsup:
i freegle most of mine but i think im going to put some one here as soon as i can do some pics as ive bought but never sold, and ebay just isnt worth it for small things...

and i spent all day with the lego....useless as he ran round the room while i made lego...he did like the potato head tho :)
