Awesome Therapy Find

Browsing in Target, I stumbled upon an awesome toy!

Disclaimer: Affiliate links are included for your convenience.

It's called Magic Jinn Animals (cost less than $5 too). He's a cute little guy who tries to read your mind. You think of an animal and touch his nose. He then proceeds through a series of questions to try to figure out what animal you're thinking of. Examples include "does the animal have stripes, is it a feline." Yes, I stood in my kitchen and tested it. No, nobody else was home, so I didn't look too crazy. 

The above picture on the box shows what kinds of answers you should give to Magic Jinn. If you mess up you can return to the previous question he asked by saying "go back." He guessed the animal I was thinking of!

Fabulous, right! Now, how will I use this in therapy?

-Target auditory processing - you have to listen to the questions and answer appropriately
-Look up various animals and discuss traits, categories, basic WH questions prior to playing with Magic Jinn
-Use it in conjunction with my latest product (Speech & Language Zoo). There's a section that provides nonfiction details about various zoo animals!

I did a quick search on Amazon and found this one, plus there appears to be one for food, which I will definitely keep my eyes peeled for.


What do you think? I'm excited to use this!


  1. Check Toys R Us for the food version. That is where I found mine.

  2. I picked that up the other day too! Plus they had Elefun marked down to less than $8. I so so so love target :-) Also- there is a Magic Jinn app as well.

  3. Just an FYI- I found these at Target yesterday on clearance. I cannot remember the price, but I believe they were 30% off!
