STUDIO CITY (CBS) — For nearly 20 years, Toys“R”Us has provided parents, caregivers and gift-givers with reliable toy recommendations for the children with special needs in their lives through the Toys“R”Us Toy Guide for Differently-Abled Kids.

Toys “R” Us Representative Wes Armstrong and Jami De La Cerda, Mom of Elijah De La Cerda, a 5-year-old boy with Down syndrome, stopped by KCAL9 Monday to talk about the latest guide.

The company announced the launch of the 2011 edition of the Guide featuring actress and philanthropist Eva Longoria on the cover and Elijah De La Cerda.

The resource is created with guidance from the National Lekotek Center, a nonprofit organization dedicated to making play accessible to children of all abilities. The Guide is available in Toys“R”Us and Babies“R”Us stores nationwide and online, in English and Spanish.

    English and Spanish? What about Korean, Farsi and Chinese? Tagalog?

      Having worked with the population of “Differently Disabled”, its good to see that there are toys that they too can have fun with while learning. As Elijah’s aunt I am glad to see that he has a company like Toys R Us to be behind him and all the special needs children who will benefit from this. Thank you Eva Longoria for your caring and thank you Toys R Us.
