A child's job is play, however there are millions of children that do not have the option of toys that are designed with their needs and abilities in mind.

Development by Design (DbD) is changing that. DbD uses Universal Design to create toys and games that all children can engage in, learn from and most importantly have fun!!

One out of every five kids in the U.S. is currently diagnosed with a disability, and one out of every 100 kids has Autism. DbD toys are not age specific, but skill specific, making them perfect for all kids! Our unique icon system makes choosing the perfect toy simple.

DbD toys aid in the development of cognitive, motor, emotional, and social skills by targeting forty skills in ten distinct areas of development. DbD toys allow kids, with or without special needs, the opportunity to develop new skills and have fun just being kids!
