KidSwitch is a patent pending device that attaches to a UK single light switch to allow a child / toddler to operate the switch.

What prompted you to develop it?

It all started when me and my family were on holiday in the Lake District - our lodge we were staying in had light switches mounted at toddler height - our two could use the light switches without shouting for Mummy and Daddy! I set to work developing and patenting a device that can attach to standard UK single light switches to allow all children (and adults!) to use light switches at home.

Is it in production or use?

Not yet in production – final design prototype ready & all manufacturing ready to launch – Crowd Funding campaign to be launched in the next few months.

Who inspires you?

My children, they amaze me how dynamic and versatile they are – we should all take a leaf out of their books and start thinking outside of the box more!

What do you hope to achieve in developing this innovation?

Bring a simple, effective new product to the UK market – enabling children to use light switches without the need for parent help, enabling them to develop their own independence and giving parents a small but helpful rest…
