As we all know Halloween around the corner, Since an Aussie retailer 'The Reject shop' has launched a range of wheelchair Halloween costumes for children.
The Aussie retailer's goal is to make the shop more inclusive so that children with disabilities can also enjoy this special occasion too.
The range comes in two different costumes and that can be easily attached to the wheelchair with the help of velcro.
The one that transforms the wheelchair into a pirate ship and the other one creates the wheelchair into a gorgeous princess carriage.
Dani Aquilina, who is the Reject Shop’s Acting Chief Executive Officer said, The Reject Shop has reputation offering low priced Halloween costumes, but the Aussie retailer wanted to make sure that all children can participate in the Halloween celebrations.
“Our wheelchair-inclusive range is the first step in ensuring that inclusion and diversity are inherent in our organization. We’re excited to introduce the range to parents and children this October, as part of our broader strategy to help more families live on a budget,” Aquilina added.
At the launch, the company has teamed up with their charity partner, HeartKids, this charity works for all children, teens, and adults affected by congenital heart disease in Australia.
According to the chief executive of HeartKids Rob Lutter, they are very excited to work with The Reject Shop on such an important initiative.
With the help of these costumes every child who is the hospital can be easily distracted from their time in hospital and can get back to normal life as a kid and enjoy the Halloween celebrations.
As the Halloween season starts the wheelchair costumes will be also available in selected stores alongside the original The Reject Shop.
The price of this wheelchair inclusive Halloween costumes is $49 each, The company hopes that by these costumes the children with disabilities will not feel different from other normal kids and enjoy the Halloween celebrations.
