What you will find in the box
Following feedback from parents we have made sure our boxes always include a toy or game designed to help develop essential skills, as well as an age-appropriate craft, and a messy play activity. There will also be a book, which subscribers can choose from three options.
At My Little Play Box we know that each child is wonderfully unique, so whilst we have given a suggested age bracket for each of our boxes, you know your child best. Please read through each description and choose the one most suited to your little learner.
The Explorer Box
Our one-off Explorer box is designed for our youngest learners, from birth to around 10 months. This one-off box includes at least seven activities, which are adult-led, brightly coloured and tactile, all things little explorers love and will last you until your child is old enough to move onto the Discoverer box. Please note this box does not include a craft option due to the age of the child.
The Discoverer Box
(10 months to two years)
For boddlers (not a baby but not yet a toddler) to toddlers, children aged between 10 months and two years are discovering more and more about the world around them as their physical and communication skills continue to develop. Our Discoverer box is the perfect solution for carers looking for a way to entertain their little learners who are becoming more independent and incorporating their interest in movement.
The Adventurer Box
(two years to four years plus)
Keep little hands and minds busy with our Adventurer box, ideal for toddlers and pre-schoolers who are beginning to engage in more structured ways of play. This box introduces exciting, new role play ideas, more complex craft activities, as well opportunities for developing their fine motor skills.
(tailored for children aged 10 months to four years plus)
Our new Build-a-Box option replaces our one-off box and is the perfect way to try out a box or give it as a gift. You will be given the chance to choose a messy play/sensory activity from four options, a craft from four options, and a toy from at least four options. Plus you can add a book when you go through to checkout.
Here at MLPB we are passionate about books. Reading is the one, most important activity you can do for brain development.
Here are just some of the reasons we love to share a book:
• It sparks your child’s imagination and stimulates curiosity
• It helps develop focus and concentration
• It exposes children to new vocabulary and sentence structure, building their communication skills
• It encourages discussion of the world around them, their own and different cultures
Reading doesn't always need to be about saying the written words, you can also use the pictures to retell the story in your own way, or make up a completely different one.
We have worked hard to bring you a small selection of high quality texts related to a monthly theme which you can enjoy time and time again.
As book choice can be so personal, we have left it up to you and your child to choose which one you would like to receive each month. This means that your child can begin to discover their own personal tastes and interests.
Using the QR code, you will be able to access discussion points, games, questions to ask and other ideas all around your chosen book to help you get the most out of the text.
