Accessibility Minute - Assistive Technology Tips and Tricks for Everyone

Sep 18, 2020

Hey there! Welcome to Accessibility Minute, your weekly look at Assistive Technology, those clever tools and devices designed to help people who have difficulties with vision, mobility, hearing or other special needs!

Fat Brain Toys offers a wide selection of toys and products for children with special needs.  One of their available products is their Walking Wheels.  In sum, Walking Wheels is a set of platforms that turn walking into rolling.

With the Walking Wheels, each step makes the wheels roll half a rotation forward.  The movement may feel clunky at first as children try to find a balance between momentum, gravity, and force.  "But then before long - WHOOOSH!"  They'll start rolling along seamlessly.

Features of Walking Wheels include:
sturdy handles on both sides for extra stability and security
Encourages gross motor skills, balance, coordination, concentration, active play
Rubber wheels roll smoothly
Great for both indoor or outdoor play
With a weight limit of 125 pounds
It's a great option for For children ages 3 and up
