Now Everyone Can Enjoy Easter Egg Hunts

What better way for children to celebrate Easter than with an Easter Egg Hunt? Now, specially designed Beeping Easter Eggs, available from MaxiAids Products for Independent Living, allow blind and visually impaired kids to join in on the fun! Instead of going by visual cues, kids locate these eggs by following the loud, clear beep they emit.

“We are happy to offer our Beeping Easter Eggs,” says Elliot Zaretsky, president of MaxiAids, leading supplier of products for the blind, low vision, deaf, hard of hearing and those with other special needs. “They give children who might otherwise be excluded the opportunity to participate in the special spring tradition of the Easter Egg Hunt.”

Beeping Easter Eggs can also be used on Easter morning to provide an audible alert as kids with low vision experience the excitement of locating their Easter baskets. In addition, they’re great for use at disability awareness functions as well as senior homes and assisted living facilities to bring the joy of Easter to all ages.

The beeper assembly and batteries are housed in the bottom half of each egg. The beeper is easily operated using a built-in ON/OFF switch and drilled holes allow sound to be transmitted more loudly. Each egg measures 3” Long x 2-1/4” Diameter and uses 2 replaceable and readily available type “N” batteries, which are included.

“We are pleased with the response we have received not only from blind and low vision groups, but also from community centers, church groups and even some individuals,” notes Mr. Zaretsky. “Many people are planning to make these beeping eggs part of their Easter traditions for years to come.”

MaxiAids Products for Independent Living ( ), a Farmingdale-based provider of items that help seniors, the visually and hearing impaired, and those with special needs, recently hosted a group of Merrick girls who are representing the Girl Scouts of Nassau County in a contest to develop a product to assist seniors.

The team of six 8th graders, all students at Merrick Avenue Middle School, is competing in the First Lego League (FLL), Lego Robotics Program, calling themselves the ‘Merrick Masters.’ The purpose of the Girl Scouts’ involvement in FLL is that they have initiatives to promote Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics with girls at an early age in hopes to inspire future scientists, engineers, or other technical studies/professions.

MaxiAids invited the team to its showroom to see a sampling of the more than 8,000 products they stock that make people’s lives easier.

MaxiAids Products for Independent Living Dedicates New 2013/14 Catalog to Professionals Who Serve Those with Special Needs

MaxiAids ( has dedicated its new 2013/14 Catalog of products for independent living to the professionals who help people with special needs live more active, healthy and independent lives. Considered “The Reference Guide of the Industry,” the MaxiAids Catalog contains the largest available assortment of items for seniors, the blind and low vision, deaf and hard of hearing, arthritic, diabetic and those with mobility challenges.

“We want to acknowledge the hard work and dedication of all the professionals in our industry who serve individuals with special needs,” said Executive Director of Operations Larry DiBlasi. “We understand the ever increasing demands on their time as caseloads are growing without much needed increases in State or Federal funding to support their efforts.”

With that in mind, the catalog has been redesigned for easier navigation so customers can locate products more quickly and efficiently and make the best use of their limited time.

Also for this year’s catalog, MaxiAids has introduced a new pricing structure, lowering their already industry-leading prices even further. Hundreds of items throughout the 2013/14 Catalog are marked with a special “New Low Price” symbol to reflect these new low prices.

Beyond their everyday low prices, MaxiAids offers professional quantity and frequency discounts. And with one-stop-shopping you save time and money (one purchase order; one invoice; combined shipping costs).

Of course, customers will continue to get the exceptional service they’ve come to expect from MaxiAids’ friendly, knowledgeable customer care team, as well as fast order turn-around with most orders shipped within 24 hours.

“We believe that now more than ever as people struggle in the current economy, it’s important that we continue to provide the best value,” concludes Mr. Zaretsky. “Whether they are buying on behalf of a school district, a government agency, or for themselves or a loved one – we want our customers to know that MaxiAids will always offer the best service and the lowest prices… period.”

MaxiAids is currently in their 27th year proudly serving the needs of our Seniors, Veterans, the Blind & Visually impaired, deaf, hard of hearing, arthritic, diabetic and those with mobility challenges and other special needs.
