Switch Accessible and Special Needs Toy Videos
Here is an example of our switch accessible dice being used – this video shows how simple it is to use the switch accessible dice by simply pressing the big red switch.
This domino train video demonstrates how the train shoots out dominions in perfect rows, it’s ideal for children who struggle with coordination and balance and then they’re able to have fun by knocking them all down!
The Dream-Racer car video shows how it’s operated using motion sensitive switches in the ‘Dream Racer Cap giving every child a chance to use a remote controlled car. Take a look at the set-up and operating instructions. The Big Green Tractor is a little slower and gives children an opportunity to practice their switch-driving skills.
The Cassy Bear is one of our favourite switch accessible toys because she’s happy all of time! Pressing her switch means she’ll sing ‘come and get happy’ whilst she rocks her feet back and forth

These are just some of the videos that we’ve put together and we’d love to know which is your favourite switch accessible and special needs toy.
APPlicator for switch access to IOS devices, iPad, iPhone and iPod Touch
The APPlicator is a brilliant switch accessory for iOS devices including the iPad, iPhone or iPod Touch. It’s manufactured by Pretorian Technologies and I’m so pleased we have added it to our catalogue alongside their Smoothie switches.
It gives the user control over switch adapted apps.
But in addition, what’s really exciting is the AAPlicator also gives the user switch control over their music playlists as well as the ability to take pictures and video with the iPad camera (also iPhone and iPod touch).
Get in touch to learn more about the APPlicator, playing music and taking pictures.
This is what Kristina had to say about the switch accessible music system she purchased for her son:
Switch accessible CD Boombox
“We spent ages trying to find a switch accessible music system for our teenage lad as we’d only been able to use our existing switch system with the radio. Excitim’s switch accessible Sony Boombox looked promising but we weren’t sure if it would work with a wireless switch. Mike was so helpful in testing things out for us before we committed to buying and always on hand when we had queries.
Many thanks to Mike for all the extra effort he put in to help us find a solution – and it was all worth it. The sound quality is great and our lad loves being able to control his music himself from his bed. It has really helped his independence. Fantastic!”
