I'm a Careers Teacher and was looking for a way to introduce the concept of jobs and tasks to my son. This has proved perfect. He has enjoyed it every time we get it out and it is great for discussions - are the same tools needed by different jobs? Why do people like different jobs? What does he hope to become? I highly recommend this particular Busy Bag.
I recently purchased this for my little
Boy who is 3 and sometimes struggles to sit and do an activity, this was the first time we have sat down and completed it all the way through without him getting bored! I am defiantly going to be buying more! Also great as can take them on the go with you so perfect :-)
I've been sending busy bags to my two and a half year old granddaughter who lives in America. She's now got nearly all the busy bags suitable for her age and she just loves them all. I believe her favorite one at the moment is the Pom Pom bag! Highly recommend.
Granddaughter of nearly 3 absolutely loves this puzzle. Definitely recommend.
Our son loves this set and there are so many different ways to use it as he gets older. Thank you!
