QEF partner charity, MERU is now selling switch adapted toys.

For the past few years, MERU has offered to adapted toys at Christmastime, but this required parents to send in Toys that they had bought themselves. But now, as there was such a huge demand to adapt toys last Christmas, we’ve decided to keep some adapted toys in stock all year round!

These toys can be bought direct from the MERU online shop - click here to visit the shop.
