Girl with Asperger’s given toilet paper igloo for Christmas after asking Santa for rolls – Metro

An eight-year-old girl with Asperger’s was given her dream Christmas gift – an entire igloo made from toilet paper.

Maggie Mullan – who also suffers from Sensory Perception Disorder (SPD) and Hyperactivity Disorder – got the unusual gift after asking for toilet roll on her list to Santa.

Her mum, Hannah Whitmore, 31, had spent over a month planning the present for the youngster which took hours to erect using 800 rolls.

Maggie from Telford first laid eyes on the igloo after noon on Christmas Day and spent the rest of the afternoon playing in it.

The rolls were donated by Tesco’s, Wilkinson’s, Northwood Hygiene Products and Telford Neighbourhood Watch after Hannah launched a ‘Maggie’s Toilet Roll Adventure’ Facebook page to raise awareness for Autism.

According to Hannah, an administrator, Maggie has loved toilet paper since the age of two and prides herself upon making complex designs using the tissue.

She has been known to make chairs out of rolls of the tissue, and often gets up at 2am in order to rearrange the toilet paper in its holder.

The youngster is said to love the material because of its soft feel, and Hannah believes that she uses it ‘as a way to express her imagination and creativity’.
