Enabling Devices offers a catalog of products for individuals with all disabilities. They offer a selection of switch-activated toys, one of them being the Seek-N-Find Switch Toy.
The Seek-N-Find Switch Toy is a more accessible version of the popular Find It Game. Find It Games have been around for years and have been noted to “promote focus and concentration through play.” In sum, they are portable, contained scavenger hunt games. Players simply move the toy around to find hidden objects inside the tube!
The Seek-N-Find Switch Toy offers the same benefits as Find It, plus much more. Developers redesigned the popular toy by making the cylinder motorized and the objects larger. The motorized cylinder allows for children to use a capability switch for search activation. Additionally, children can turn the cylinder manually if they’re capable.
