According to Elena Torres, one of the exhibitors, the games and toys were designed based on a research on special children and their disabilities prior to the event.

“Designing a game or a toy for children with disabilities is challenging. You have to study a lot to satisfy their needs and their parents’ expectation.” – Torres said.
