APPlicator for iPad music and photos

Applicator iPad Switch DeviceThe APPlicator is a brilliant iDevice accessory and we’ve just added it to the catalogue on Special Needs Toys.

I’m a big fan of the APPlicator because it gives the user switch access to music playlists and the camera on the iPad, iPhone or iPod Touch as well as switch access to adapted apps used in education or home use.

It works with:

  • iPad
  • iPod Touch 4th and 5th generation
  • iPhone 3GS, 4, 5 and 6
  • iOS 6, 7 and 8

Get in touch for more information on the APPlicator and how it works in music and photo modes.

Excitim’s YouTube Channel

It’s now, just over a year since Excitim’s YouTube Channel launched showing videos of our switch adapted and accessible toys as well as interviews with parents and professionals.

Today I checked the viewing stats; altogether they have been viewed over 3,800 times.

Most watched is an interview we did with staff and parents at Kool Kidz Play Group, Parkfield School, in Birmingham and shows kids learning through switch adapted play.


New switch adapted cars

This autumn we have added two new switch adapted toys to our catalogue. The first is the Tolo First Friends Pony Club and the other is the Tolo First Friends Car.Tolo-Car-Pony-Club-Montage-

Both are switch accessible using any standard 3.5mm / 1/8th inch switch and when pressed the child is rewarded by hearing and seeing:

– engine start-up noises

– a honking horn

– flashing head lights and red brake lights

– movement as the cars drive along for about 1 metre.

Both cars are great but I guess some will like the added play elements of the pony and trailer. Which would your child like most?
