Amusement for toddler after sugery

I have a friend who has a 28 month-old son who had major sugery last week. He has a large incision across his abdomen and he still has an IV. He is supposed to stay still. I am looking for something to amuse him while he is still and would welcome any suggestions. thanks!

I would suggest a leggo table. it can be put right in front of him at the couch and he can just sit there and build blocks. You can get the big blocks which are easier at his age to use. The other thing I would suggest is a hand held video thomas or any disney character. He will not understand the game I am sure but usually kids that age love pushing buttons .

A favorite movie, or reading books to him. My son just loves when I pick out a picture book for him and he gets to "read" it with me. He points out the colors and objects he knows in the book. If hes interested in any certain thing, like trains for example, read a train book with him. I know you cant do that all the time but thats when I find his favorite movies come in real handy.
