During this holiday season, four children will be able to ride around their backyards in style thanks to a new adaptable toy car. A software development company named EPAM Systems donated ride-on cars to four children who receive services from The Warren Center. The cars were adapted specifically for each child to use as part of physical or occupational therapy. With the help of therapists at The Warren Center, each child’s design was customized.
EPAM Systems has donated adaptable cars to nonprofits in the Houston area, but this is the first time EPAM has donated the Go Baby Go cars to families in the Dallas-Fort Worth area.
Each car took about a few hours to design. What makes the cars adaptive is the protective tubing around the back, a button on the steering wheel a child can press to make the vehicle go, and a seat belt. A parent also gets a remote control so they can control the car. The car has lights and a radio that plays music, too.
A sibling of one of the donation recipients said, “thanks to this gift, he can now finally play with his younger brother.”
According to EPAM Systems, they hope to design and donate more of these cars to children at The Warren Center in the future. EPAM currently has an Amazon wish list of items they use to build the adaptable cars. If you purchase items off of the wish list, they will be shipped directly to EPAM.
