Get to Know Echo The Elephant

One of our favorite toys, Buddy Dog, needed a friend: introducing Echo. She has warm, oversized engaging eyes and a friendly smile that will delight any child. Echo’s high contrast colors are appealing to all children, even those with low vision. Her stimulating features encourage tactile exploration through her cool cotton, soft velour, rubbery and raised dots, fluffy tuft of hair, the secret patch of Velcro on her backside, and most distinguishing her large floppy ears.

See What a Playability Customer Said About Echo:
"My daughter is visually impaired among her other disabilities. Echo’s high contrast colors are perfect for her very low vision. My daughter also needs and loves toys with stimulating features like Echo's hands, ears and the crinkle material. Add in the nose sounds and she will be a happy little girl."

Play Ideas

Story Buzzer - Child can squeeze Echo the Elephant’s trunk to make her trumpet every time a word is said in a story. This keeps little ears listening and adds a laugh to story time.

Dress Up - Dress up Echo in other doll clothes to practice fine motor skills like buttoning, zipping, tying and pretend play.

Hot & Cold - Caregiver can hide Echo and the child can search for her with the help of hot and cold hints. Hot if the child is close and cold is the child is far away!

Locational - Caregiver can use Echo to encourage the understanding of locational skills– over, under, behind, next to.

I like to use Echo with my brother, Felipe! I pull the cord to make Echo bounce and jingle which tickles Felipe and makes him laugh.

My teachers are always looking for products that will engage and entertain many age and ability levels of kids with special needs in their classrooms. Echo the Elephant has a little something for every need—auditory, tactile and visual.

My son seeks sensory stimulation. Vibration helps his body calm down so that he can regulate and attend to tasks. Echo the Elephant is a perfectly sized buddy for him to carry with him everywhere!

"Finding engaging toys for our daughter who is blind can be a challenge. She loves to crinkle Echo's vest and push his nose. Echo keeps her entertained!

I purchased the Echo the Elephant for my 3 year old granddaughter. Her mother quickly called me and said little Lexi was in love with Echo. Since Lexi in on the Autism Spectrum, it is wonderful to see her engaging with Echo as if she is alive and talking back to her!
