Alive and Kicking
We are two working Mums, passionate about promoting Role Play for the older child. We both had children that wanted to continue the ‘let’s pretend’ experience, without the stigma of it being deemed ‘babyish’ by their peers. They wanted to take role play to the next level by feeling that they were playing ‘for real’.
And when one of our daughters asked for a “grown up Teachers’ pack, just like the one that they use in school” we set about designing one from scratch. From there, orders started to flood in from friends and family as there wasn’t anything like it available on the market. Over a cuppa in a supermarket café, we decided to take the plunge and offer our packs to the wider market. And from that moment, as the product has developed, our enthusiasm and passion for it has grown.
We knew we were on to something good when within our first four weeks of trading, we received recognition from industry leaders. Firstly the Jacqueline Gold WOW award and then closely followed by winning a National Award from Toy Talk in the Best Role Play Toy 2014 category.
Each imaginative role play pack contains approximately 50 pages of forms, stickers and certificates and will allow children to act out fun tasks such as filling out appointment cards for their teddies, giving eye tests to their friends, taking the morning register with their action figures or even writing out school reports for Mummy and Daddy! They are educational too, helping to develop social, problem solving and writing skills too!
Check out our Charity edition Doctor Packs. Donations will be given to our chosen charity partner for 2018, the children’s cancer charity CLIC Sargent.
Jenny was amazing so helpful and basically opened her contact book to us. This will give us so much opportunity to get our packs out and I can’t thank her enough.
