i want to put a big mirror in my babe's room so we can have eye contact when he's sitting on my lap, and for signing... and because he likes looking at himself <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/wink1.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="wink1"><br><br>
any ideas where i could find one? baby mirrors all seem to be really small, larger mirrors are made of glass... is there anyone out there selling these? my learning asl doesn't help if the kiddo is looking the other way!<br><br>
thanks

Hmm, I found a couple of things that might fit the bill:<br><br><a href="https://www.schoolspecialtyonline.net/search/intermediateDetails.jsp?catalogPartNum=103759994&catalogCode=A107&returnURL=/search/mainSearchResults.jsp&catalogProductId=41743426(1" target="_blank">https://www.schoolspecialtyonline.ne...tId=41743426(1</a>)<br><br><a href="http://www.communicationaids.com/totemirrorandeasel.htm" target="_blank">http://www.communicationaids.com/totemirrorandeasel.htm</a><br><br>
HTH! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

If you look at some of the special education catalogues for teachers and therapists, there are some mirrors made for speech therapists that are large and unbreakable.

Any catalog that sells preschool/daycare items. Two that I'd look at --<br><br>
Communityplaythings.com because their stuff is particularly beautiful<br><br>
and Discountschoolsupply.com because their stuff is generally pretty cheap.<br><br>
I think the mirror is a wonderful idea!

The ones that are made for SN or daycares are usually a lot more expensive than just plain acrylic mirrors. If you do a search for "acrylic mirror" or "unbreakable mirror" on google, you'll find some retailers that sell them for other purposes. We got a 2'x3' one for about $35, I think, and it came with mounting equipment (really easily installed on a wall).<br><br>
If you want one with a bar attached, or in funny shapes (bears, fish, face, etc.), or with other sensory equipment attached, then definitely look for the ones in educational/special needs catalogs.<br><br>
My son LOVES his mirror. They're fun to have!
