    Please recommend some Deaf-friendly toys and/or play centers for 6-24 month old babies. All I can find are ones that are strongly sound and music based. I'm looking for something that has lots of lights, tactile things or vibrations.

    My daughter loved this, from Toys R Us. It does play sound, but there are separate buttons for the sound, so you dont have to have the sound playing. The wings light up and transition through different colors, its really pretty.

    This was also a good one, from Target. Yes, there are silly sounds, but they aren't loud and obnoxious. It vibrates and bounces. She loved this one, too.

    At the end of the day, its really hard to find kid toys that dont make sound. We just had to get over it. There are some awesome toys out there and they just make noises. Its sad at first, and annoying, but you get over it.

    She also loves this thing. We found it at a mom n pop toy store in our town, but I'm sure you can find it online.

    Its for a little older girls, but my daughter loves it!! Even if she just uses it to bang on her car seat in the car haha!

    Tristen listed some awesome toys, here are a few my daughter has from the hear more website. We also have a lot of neat flash cards from this site if you are using ASL at home. (Under the numbers puzzle are pictures of the number in ASL .)
