Switch Adapted Toys – The Minions are taking over the world!

Announcing the Minion movie & our new switch adapted toy Minion

We’ve got a lot of love for Minions, so much so we’ve added three new Minions to our switch adapted toys section.  We’ve not been able to get enough of these little critters since Despicable Me 1 and 2.  When we heard about them starring in their very own movie, we thought it was a great idea to release our new switch adapted toy Minions, Bob, Stewart, Kevin.

 New Minions added to our switch adapted toy section

Minion brothers Kevin, Stuart and Bob

Minion Stuart is the big brother and the leader in the Minions movies.  He’s bananas mad and loves to tell just how much.

Minion Stuart, is the middle brother and a wannabe rock star and of course a rebel! He comes with a working guitar so you can help him reach his  star potential.

Minion Bob is the little brother and the minion that falls in love with everyone. We’ve certainly fallen in love with him.

All thee Minions are switch adapted and  wonderfully interactive. They include sayings from the movie, songs and funny noises which the Minions are known for.

Minion Movie Announced

We’re on the edge of our seats waiting for July 10th 2015 when the new Minion movie comes out on the big screen. The three little mischievous Minions: Stuart, Bob and Kevin are recruited by villain aptly named Scarlet OverKill, voiced by Sandra Bullock to take over the world, but we wander if they have plans of their own… It is their film after all!

It’s our aim to provide all children with the right to play and have fun.  With our range of switch adapted toys, we hope to ignite their imagination and encourage their potential.

We’d love to know what you think of our switch adapted toy Minions and the new movie when it’s out. Please come back and let us know your thoughts.

Make learning fun with Switch Adapted Toys & Sensory play

Featuring our switch adapted and sensory toys to aid learning

Switch adapted toys and toys that involve sensory play help children to assimilate the world around them.  Making sense of the world is an enormous task for children and even more so for disabled children.  How children make sense of the world eventually will affect how they relate to those around them.

  “Play develops creativity, intellectual competence, emotional strength and stability, and feelings of joy and pleasure.  The habit of being happy”. Piers and Landau

Sensory Play Toys: Mr Bump engages children

Encouraging our children to use most if not all of their 5 senses during play, enables them to become active learners. Sensory play helps children to develop their emotional, physical and social skills further.

Sensory play helps children to create meaning from their experiences and has been linked to cognitive, social and emotional development.

Our sensory toy Mr Bump is made out of plush velvet so it’s lovely to touch, and makes funny crashing noises should he be dropped.

This sensory toy allows the child to have control over what they’re doing and keeps them engaged in something that they find fun.
