The Story behind toucanBox
Hello, my name is Virginie and I am the mother of two very enquiring preschool children – Hannah and Constance. Having read pages and pages of info in help books and on the internet, I know how important it is for kids to keep stimulated in the years leading up to when they start school. This being said, I also understand that this sometimes easier said than done!
The idea for toucanBox came from watching a certain popular children’s TV show. My 4 year old excitedly watched as the presenters built all manner of things from every day household objects. She looked at expectantly as if to say “Mummy, when are we going to start?” But we just didn’t have the “every day” materials required (I mean, who saves 24 ice lolly sticks?) and what with my new born leaving me housebound, poor Hannah was left disappointed.
I thought to myself, wouldn’t it be great if I could get a tailor made selection of materials and activities delivered to my door? A monthly treasure trove with educational and fun themes to keep the kids entertained in a productive way – all in one handy Box.
The next day I went out and bought all the stuff that needed whilst the kids were with the babysitter and made a mock up. Lo and behold, Hannah loved it, and the Box alone was enough to keep little Constance amused.
We’ve had a lot of fun realising this idea and we hope that you and your kids will enjoy your toucanBox
Our toucanBox was great and so easy to use! All the materials are provided and the instructions are clear and simple to follow.
