WAIKIKI (KHNL) -- Some future inventors at Stevenson Intermediate School modified electronic toys for disabled keiki at Jefferson Elementary School. Jefferson students marvel at their new toys.

"We open it and like some you had to cut open and find the wires, we attached it and made it child proof then we make the switch," explained toy maker Michael Carter.

"A lot of the toys in order to turn them on, they don't have the strength to do that," said Assisted Technology Teacher Judy Namura.

The older kids get satisfaction out of seeing the reaction to their toys.

"It was really good to see them enjoy playing with he toys we were able to make," said toy maker Jason Yokogawa.

"They were all happy and I felt good about myself because I accomplished them to be happy," said toy maker Isabel Andrade.

"It felt great because when you put the toys on the table and those kids started to play with them they started to feel happy," added toy maker Jian Wei.

"The children are really excited especially when they got the new toys and to see the things that happen some made sounds some vibrated some jumped," said Namura.
