On/Off Switch


The On/Off switch is designed to help teach children the concept of ‘cause and effect’ – a key cognitive development skill which helps children recognise the impact of their actions.

Visually stimulating, brightly coloured large surface areas make this robust wooden On/Off switch simple to use, whilst the thick base makes it suitable for even heavy-handed youngsters.

Vat Relief

To avoid paying tax on VAT exemptible products you are required by law to provide TFH with a completed VAT relief declaration. This declaration by an individual that is chronically sick or disabled requires a full and specific description of the disabling condition.

Note - Some disabling conditions (for example Arthritis) are specifically excluded from the government's VAT relief scheme. If you are in any doubt as to whether you are eligible for VAT relief on VAT Exemptible products you should consult your local VAT office before signing the declaration.

Claiming VAT Relief

VAT relief can be claimed during the checkout process. Providing you have VAT exemptible products within your shopping basket you will see a tick box which will allow you to claim VAT relief. Once ticked you will be provided with an online declaration to complete.

Thank you.

Recognising cause and effect is a cognitive skill which usually starts developing when babies are very young. Children soon learn that actions such as crying can result in outcomes that can include being picked up, rocked, fed etc.

Understanding what happens, or what can happen, as a result of an action instigated by themselves plays a key role in learning development and helps children in a number of ways as they get older.

Cause and effect is also vital in teaching children and youngsters how to stay safe. A number of potential hazards can be avoided if children understand the potential consequences of certain types of behaviour.

For example, children are taught that if they touch an oven which is switched on it is highly likely they will hurt themselves. And if they shut a door with their hand in the doorframe, again that will hurt.

This concept can be taught using a variety of simple props including the On/Off Switch from TFH. Pressing the green side turns the device the switch is wired to on, whilst the red button switches it off.

This latching switch can be wired to a wide range of mains powered sensory toys, but is not suitable for use with Bubble Columns.

The On/Off switch also provides proprioceptive input for children with sensory processing disorders by teaching that a specific amount of force is needed to achieve the desired result.
