For Families & Professionals

Tadpole has over 1,300 items that have been selected for use with children and adults with developmental disabilities. Many of these items offer a multi-sensory approach to play using various combinations of light, sound or music, vibration, and texture.

Tadpole is a free service which provides short term loans of both adapted and non-adapted devices to adults and children with developmental disabilities.  You may place your order right here on our website and we will fill it as soon as possible (usually within a week).  Your order will arrive via UPS to the shipping address you provided.  Your order will include a packing list that includes the items that you borrowed as well as a ‘Due back the week of ________” date.  Prior to your due date, Tadpole will contact UPS to let them know to pick up your package.  We ask that you have your box ready on the date it is due.  This means that it should be packaged (with the original packing material), batteries should be removed and the box should be taped securely shut.  UPS will arrive and bring a label and return the box to Tadpole.
