Recording star is an educational toy designed for children with autism which works similar as a recorder. The product consists of a series of balls with different materials and appearances. Parents and children are to cooperate while using the product. Parents wrote the corresponding facial expressions of the children when the child shows a strong mood swings to certain kind of music, sound, etc. Later they can review the recorded clip and, at this point, children’s emotional perception would be cultivated.
