Costs

Costs

- FREE
- Families can have a Wizzybug for as long as the child can benefit (this is usually until they outgrow it) and when they have completed their loan, they return their Wizzybug and we refurbish it for another family.
- Parents are asked to pay a security deposit of £200.00, which is refunded when their Wizzybug is returned in an acceptable condition at the end of the loan period.
