How the Internet Saved Christmas

BlogHer Original Post

I was in shock and my husband and I have been relentlessly trying to find this for him.

He loves to read about rockets and the solar system, so I was shocked that he would remember this specific toy from a video that he has not seen in years.

Due to his autism he has a phenomenal memory and now that he is finally speaking at 7 years old this is the one thing he asks for by name. Although I have tried the manufacturer, Rabbit Tanaka Corp of Texas, and the Baby Einstein company they are not able to help as the mold to re-run the toy have been destroyed. At this point I am just trying to find a person with a used one who would be willing to sell it.

I have tried to find a new or used Mini-Orbiter on all sites. I have even shown him other types of solar systems but he says “No, that’s not it, I need the one from Baby Einstein.”

This past Sunday we took Jaden to meet Santa and he actually spoke to him and made this request in person. I don’t want to see disappointment in his face if he does not receive this even though we know that may be the case ...

Whatever you are able to do to help me locate this item so that I may purchase it for my son would be greatly appreciated. I look forward to hearing from you.

The more people I can reach who might have this, the better his odds are of having his Christmas wish come true.
