In reading exercise #3 of JLPT N3 読む guide, there's a sentence that contains それ and I don't understand why.

大好きなおもちゃが壊れてしまった子供にとっては、それを直してくれるおもちゃの専門家が、神様のように見えるようです。

Can someone explain to me why それ is being used?

  • Are you asking what the それ refers to, or why それ is used over これ? – Chocolate Sep 17 '19 at 23:39

It's a pronoun which refers to おもちゃ and is 直してくれる's object; as far as I understand, the breakdown is それを直してくれる (to fix that [toy]) and おもちゃの専門家 (toy expert), giving "The toy expert who fixes that [toy]".
