‘We really liked the art work of the toys with disabilities because we used them to explain to our five year old what a disability was.’ – Parent
‘The images enabled us as parents to open a dialogue with my daughter about her new (first) wheelchair that she was previously anxious about. She is now excited for it to arrive. That was in part thanks to the art exhibition and seeing the superman in a wheelchair. She loves superheros and this really helped her accept their new wheelchair.’ – Parent
‘We have been spending quite a lot of time at York Hospital with our disabled son. As we go around the hospital we always look at your amazing pictures on the corridor. We all really love the one of the Lego Superman in a wheelchair. My son is a wheelchair user and we love seeing this normalised and also celebrated. Thanks for your efforts to breakdown these boundaries.’ – Parent
