Adapting battery operated toys for switch users

A question was asked recently about adapting battery operated toys for switch users vs. buying them already adapted. Any battery operated toy can be quickly and easily adapted for a switch with a Battery Device Adapter (creative name, eh?). Many vendors carry them for around $12 each. They come in AA or D size. Navigate to the Links to Resources section and check out Battery Device Adapters. The link is to ABLEDATA, a database of AT related equipment - not a vendor. ABLEDATA is sponsored by the National Institute on Disability and Rehabilitation Research (NIDRR), part of the Office of Special Education and Rehabilitative Services (OSERS) of the U.S. Department of Education.
