Our busy bags make excellent christmas presents for kids, and we are thrilled to have been featured in the Daily Mail Femail guide to the best christmas presents for kids 2019 - "Femail reveals the presents that will make Christmas magical for kids". Carole Driver has selected a range of amazing Christmas gifts for little ones and we are over the moon to be on the list. "These three stocking-filler busy bags are great for tiny hands with huge imaginations. The games (that all have kids’ development in mind) are simple to understand - such as matching pictures to letter sounds, or placing picture cards (hats/leaves) on to the right season. But they’re incredibly fun, delivered in brightly coloured bags that are easy to store. A must buy. 18mnths +". View all our busy bags here.

Junior Design Awards 2020
We are thrilled to have scooped a Bronze award in the Best Travel Product (for children) category, in the at the Junior Design Awards 2020 for our Fun Folders, woohoo! They said "Our judges felt a real gap in the market had been identified and loved the fact that these exciting looking folders give kids not only a range of activities to absorb them during a journey but also a lovely sense of independence and pride in their very own travel accessory. The panel felt these kits were bright, fun, well made and cleverly put together and that they would definitely keep children entertained on the go and provide a good alternative to screen time. The choice of different coloured zips so that children can pick theirs out from their friends’ or siblings’ was also appreciated."
Junior Design Awards 2019
We won the joint silver award for best creative play at the Junior Design Awards 2019! They said "Our judges felt that these kits were perfect for slipping into a handbag or taking along on a trip away. The strong educational element was much appreciated as was the ‘mess free’ promise. Great for keeping children entertained on the go without leaving glue smears on train tables and ideal for keeping little minds stimulated without resorting to screen time."
