Toy Like Me is an advocate for positive disability representation within the toy industry and Sequin Art is the first craft brand to collaborate with the nor-for-profit organization to better represent children worldwide. The newest addition to the Sequin Art Red Range is the Izzy Fairy design, which features a wheelchair-using fairy named after 10-year-old Izzy from Thetford in Norfolk.
The sequin craft for kids ages six and up will not only help kids to become more dexterous and skilled as they put together an intricate sparkling image but also helps to foster self-esteem in children with disabilities. As such, the Izzy Fairy design boasts a 'Loved by Toy Like Me' endorsement.
As well as having an impact on brands like LEGO, Playmobil and Barbie, Toy Like Me's influence only continues to spread.
