Meru details toy adaptation scheme

Accessibility company Meru has launched a new service to adapt interactive children’s toys so that they can be used by children with disabilities.

The company will add switch connectors to battery-operated toys, allowing children with restricted movement of their limbs to access the toys’ interactive features.

There is no charge for the labour but customers must provide the toy and switch connecters for modification. MERU also offer advice on what will work and discuss the child’s specific requirements.

This is available for shipping to UK addresses only and toys must be delivered to Meru by December 13th to be returned in time for Christmas.

Meru builds assistive equipment for children and young people with disabilities and offers modifications for products including tablets, cameras, musical instruments. For a full range of Meru’s products and services, head over to their website.
