Meet Anja

At 16 months of age, Anja is one of the youngest children to be approved for a Gobabygo car, and the wee redhead and her family are faced with an array of challenges, including complex epilepsy. But they're hoping she'll develop better head and neck control one day, and purposeful use of her arms, and the car will provide a longer-term incentive. Meantime it will encourage other children to relate to her, and will give her mobility at ground level, and in a play environment
