About RePlay for Kids
600 W STURBRIDGE DR, MEDINA, OH 44256, US
The mission of RePlay for Kids is to increase the availability of toys and assistive devices for children with disabilities. We pursue this mission by repairing existing devices, adapting mainstream toys, designing new devices, and educating families and clinicians.
RePlay for Kids is a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt non-profit organization of volunteers who repair and adapt toys and assistive devices for children with disabilities in Northeast Ohio. 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 the Northeast Ohio area. 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.
