How Nick Lachey Is Using His Personal Experience With Special Needs to Teach His Children Acceptance
For over 20 years, Toys"R"Us's Toy Guide for Differently-Abled Kids has been a free, one-of-a-kind resource for those buying gifts for children, specifically those with special needs. The guide supports all types of children by showcasing toys that aid in the development of particular skills, and it takes the guesswork out of gift-giving.
Every year Toys"R"Us features a celebrity or athlete on the cover of the catalog, and we got to speak with Nick Lachey, this year's cover star. The father of two – whose brother has Asperger's, a form of autism – had a lot to say about the importance of the guide as a resource, and shared some personal tidbits about his kiddos, Camden and Brooklyn, and their relationships with toys — spoiler alert: him and his wife are considering turning a full room into a playroom!
Read through to hear more from Nick about the guide, and see the adorable behind-the-scenes photos from the cover shoot.
