Modified toys get children moving
GoBabyGo! program at Fisher-Price retrofits vehicles for kids with disabilities

Camie Jarrell of West Seneca places her daughter Cadence, 3, into her new car to take a first ride. Cadence, who can’t move on her own, was thrilled that now she can thanks to Thursday’s GoBabyGo! event in East Aurora.
