Last December Kara Melissa (blogs at http://karamelissa.com) purchased the Rally Racer switch adapted car for her Son, Seb.
It was his main Christmas present so very important that it worked for him (and his younger sister). Seb uses switches attached to his tray and has worked hard at learning to target these switches to access his communication aids, computer and iPad games. Rally Racer needed to be a ‘drop-in solution’ for Seb’s switch configuration. It was!
Kara initially contacted me via Facebook and we then bounced ideas back and forth on email. It turned out that Seb wanted either a train set or racing car set. In the end it was the Rally Racer racing car set that won out. I built one for Seb and shipped it to Toronto.
Gifts for Seb was my blog about Kara’s approach to finding toys suitable for a six year old with a cerebral palsy condition and especially her search for toys that ‘continued to deliver’ long after the initial excitement has passed.
Kara tells me Rally Racer was a bit hit on Christmas Day with family and friends. Seb was thrilled to bits 🙂 His absolute favourite bit is crashing the cars – isn’t that typical boy fun.
This week she sent me a blog link to her Rally Racer review. It’s a very good read and Rally Racer gets an A+ rating which ain’t bad in my books.
I encourage everyone to read the Rally Racer review and join the 1300+ parents and professionals who are following her blog.
Watch this space: Kara is also planning to review the Switch Dice for playing board games we designed; I’m looking forward to hearing what she says about it.
