Christmas is a time for joy and for making dreams come true. At our Innovation Centre we believe that all children can achieve their dreams, however big or small. This Christmas we are celebrating twelve fabulous ways our Innovation Centre have made dreams come true this year:
GoTo is a postural support seat developed by Firefly and CIC that lets children participate in those moments that make family life special. Families worldwide use their GoTo Seats in supermarket trolleys, on planes, swings and Granny’s dining chair. They make daily tasks easier, and mean kids don’t need to miss out. It gives a little piece of independence that lets them see the world from a new perspective and feel they’re at the heart of the action.
“Absolutely fantastic product! The GoTo seat is so easy to use and has allowed us to bring Jake shopping with us anytime we want! It really has changed the way Jake can interact with people around him! His posture is excellent in the GoTo seat.” – Kate Mellor

The inflatable Relaxation, Audio Visual Entertainment tent is one of our most ambitious concepts to date. RAVE is an ultraportable sleeping, relaxing or sensory stimulating space for children or adults alike. Inspired by the kitesurfing world RAVE packs away into a suitcase and can be inflated and deflated using a hand pump in a matter of minutes. We’ve included loads of attachment points inside so you can tailor the experience with all your favourite sensory toys and equipment.
Developed by Firefly using one of our most popular concepts, Scoot provides an experience of independence for many kids with mobility problems. It frees them to explore their home, play with friends, chase big brothers and race little sisters without any help. Firefly’s expert clinicians, designers and engineers worked hard to create a device that will help kids discover new skills as well as new pals. The potential for physical and cognitive development was a key factor in every element of the design.

To create this stunning rocking horse we collaborated with the brilliant design team at Sanders Design in Cardiff. We chose this striking and clever design, incorporating plenty of adjustment for children aged between 4 and 8 years old. It’s available with a flat seat or an option that provides enhanced postural support for the rider over a conventional rocking horse. Children love the calming rocking motion which helps build their core strength whilst they enjoy a fun and engaging indoor activity.
“Charlie loves it and now his brother can have his one back. It is brilliantly made and attractive to have in the house! Thank you!”
