MERU can adapt toys for use with switches, to make them easier for children with disabilities to use.
Our volunteers carry out the work for free, but we ask that the postage is paid for, as we have limited resources and this enables us to help as many people as possible.
Please pay for your postage online, print off the receipt and send it to us with your toys. Alternatively you can send us an email or letter with details of the toys you are sending in. Please remember to include your name and address with your toys!
It is currently taking us about 10 days from receiving the toys to adapting them and returning them to you. If for any reason we are unable to adapt a toy you have sent in we will contact you as soon as possible to discuss any options.
As a general guide, we are able to adapt toys that are battery operated where it is possible to replace the batteries. Please bear in mind that toys which spin or move away from the child are unlikely to be suitable to adapt as the switch lead will become entangled or pulled out. For safety purposes we are unable to adapt products that are mains powered.
To pay for the postage, please add this ‘item’ to your shopping basket and go through the checkout procedure.
The total cost for P&P for adapted toys is £6. This item is £1 and £5 shipping will be added during the checkout process.
Our apologies if this seems complicated, but it is the best way for us to take a payment for the P&P on our website.
