Thanks to the generous bidders at the 2013 Royal Queensbury Championship boxing event, ToyBox International has been able to purchase a fleet of Wizzybugs for families in need who have children living with cerebral palsy.
Having been imported once funded from the UK, the Wizzybugs have just arrived into Perth and to celebrate the handover of them to the families, ToyBox International hosted a Morning Tea on Friday October 4th at the Barbagallo Ferrari Showroom in Osborne Park.
Joining us were the families we have met through the Centre for Cerebral Palsy who were receiving a Wizzybug and the individuals and companies who funded them for ToyBox International.
Wizzybugs are bright red mobility vehicles for toddlers with disabilities. They are specially designed and are powered by a lightweight, re-chargeable battery. They have the capacity for five kilometres of travel between charges and their puncture proof tyres mean parks and playgrounds that had previously been inaccessible, can now be explored. Wizzybugs have the ability to give toddlers a whole new lease on life and a chance at increased development, independence and fun!
