This is a heads up for anyone with kids with autism or additional needs that on November 30th every Toys R Us store in the UK will be holding an autism friendly and additional needs exclusive shopping event.
To make this as comfortable as possible TRU promises “reduced fluorescent lighting, no loud music or tannoy announcements.” Additionally all staff will have been provided with some parent led autism awareness training.
This does look like a great chance to enjoy some Christmas shopping with your children as the event is exclusively for parents with additional needs children.
The stores will be open 9.am till 11am with tills opening at 11am (due to Sunday trading restrictions) and staff will make sure there is quick efficient access to tills for payment or offer to hold trolleys till an appropriate time if you wish to pop out and return to pay.
Toys R Us go on to add, “Of course everyone is welcome to come along just browse and play!”
