RePlay for Kids host workshops in which volunteers are shown how to adapt mainstream, battery-powered toys with external switches so that children with disabilities can use them. These adapted toys are then provided, for free, to agencies that work with kids with disabilities.

In these workshops, volunteers adapt mainstream, battery-operated toys by placing a switch cable in parallel with the original switch, allowing the toy to be operated by a variety of alternative switches that could be plugged into the cable.

We host an annual Adapted Toy Giveaway, where families and agency representatives select free adapted toys that are appropriate for their children or the children they serve. To see photos and more information from our past Adapted Toy Giveaways, just click here.

We also partner with local agencies in our RePlay @Home program, where we gie away adapted toys to low-income families of children with disabilties.
