Switch accessible music system

Read what Kristina had to say about the system she purchased for her son on our Testimonials page:

“We spent ages trying to find a switch-adapted music system for our teenage lad as we’d only been able to use our existing switch system with the radio. Excitim’s switch-adapted 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.

CD BoomboxMany 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!”

Update March 2015: unfortunately this has become ‘old tech’ and many producers no longer feature them in their range. We now find it impossible to source high quality CD boomboxes with an infra-red remote for us to offer as a switch accessible system.

We can offer alternatives: get in touch through our Contact Us page if you would like to know more.

Sheriff Woody is one of three new switch adapted and accessible toys we have introduced as part of our new 2012 collection. Take a look at the Special-Needs-Toys website now.

We are trying to make it easier for parents and carers to find appropriate toys by suggesting an age range suitability. As a guide we are suggesting three age ranges:

3 to 6 years , 6 to 10 years and 10 to teens

These are suggestions and clearly there will be overlap depending on each individuals like, and abilities.

We’ll be adding more switch toys and gadgets to the range over the next weeks and months.
