Mission: RePlay for Kids is an organization that repairs and modifies toys and assistive devices for use by children with disabilities. RePlay for Kids provides these services at no cost for non-profit organizations that provide medical, educational, or recreational resources for children with disabilities in Northeast Ohio. Most of these organizations have limited resources and often cannot afford to replace devices that have broken, and do not have the technical knowledge or time available to repair the devices. RePlay for Kids can provide these services, therefore increasing the number of functioning toys and assistive devices available for children with disabilities.

Replay has conducted a toy refitting workshop three times at Beaumont School. The girls are always nervous at first, but once in their groups, they dive in and start revving up those power tools! We can't wait for the next time.

I have worked with Replay both as a client and recipient of adapted toys, and as a host for adapted toy workshops through University Hospitals. My interactions with Replay have always been positive. In particular I would note an organized, responsive, and welcoming staff and leadership of the organization. We are grateful to have established a relationship with Replay and have seen great benefits for the patients and families we serve by being able to offer adapted toys.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Acting as manager of Family and Child LIfe services and providing adapted toys to our patients and families.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Increase awareness of the company and its benefits to other community organizations who could partner and collaborate in various ways.

As a speech pathologist working with young children with disabilities, I love the adapted toys that Replay for Kids provides. I am able to loan toys out to families to try with their children. The variety of toys adapted is a great help as we try to find something motivating to each individual child. Often these early cause and effect toys set the stage for more complex communication using augmentative switches or devices down the road.
