Imagination is the Key

Our kids live in such a visually overwhelming world. Their senses are constantly bombarded.

To grow up confident in who they are and what they can create, they need space. 

They need time to imagine, create and explore their world.

We give them a starting point, somewhere to launch into their imagination! What they create, and where they go depends on the choices they make.

And along the way, they’ll discover more about who they are and what they can do!

Activities that get them thinking outside the box

Creativity lies in the unknown. It needs you to ask new  questions, and take new action. It’s challenging yourself to try a new way.

We’ll get them exploring, creating, discovering, hunting, experimenting, playing, and having a great time as they grow!

Thanks for creating such an amazing collection of hands on activity! The Treasure Island survival box was much enjoyed by our two boys aged 9 and 5 and two of their friends aged 10 and 7 during a school holiday playdate. Highlights were making and playing with the oobleck (the grownups also couldn’t help but play with it too, haha). The box provided HOURS of fun and they haven’t even gotten through all the cards 🙂

Highly recommend these creative boxes!!

Wow our secret agent mission box arrived today! I am super impressed! Such meticulous attention to detail even down to the coloured rubber bands matching the theme! (yes I noticed!). Everything was so well thought out and considered and each activity encouraged open ended play and curiosity, and was a great springboard for further exploration! Excellent value for money! We’ve already made the slice, played the board game, my daughter coloured almost the entire colouring book and we read it tonight and learnt a lot about the Czech Republic in the process! And we’ve done a few of the activities so more to explore and create tomorrow and they’re thinking and learning so much! And I really appreciated the effort to be as eco-friendly as possible! Thank you so much! So much love, thought and effort has gone into this box.

Our Marshmallow and Mint Spy themed Inspiration Box was an absolute boredom buster! It arrived on the second to last day of Level 3 (2.0) and created a whole day’s worth of activities. There was all kinds of scavenging, peering through the magnifying glass, pretend play and giggling at Spy Names. What could of been a nightmare of a day ended up being the most fun we’ve had in ages! So thank you for an awesome box of fun. We will definitely be ordering the other boxes in the future!

I bought my nieces the Superpower pack when we went away on holiday together recently. Not sure who had more fun(!) – I really enjoyed watching the 8 year old dive right in and imagine and create. Wish I’d thought to take a photo of the time of the concentration and enjoyment! Thanks for the fun – we really enjoyed it!
