“We don’t stop playing because we grow old; we grow old because we stop playing”.George Bernard Shaw

Do you believe in magic? One of the definitions of magic is: “a power that seems mysterious”. Magic sparks curiosity and entertains people. What if you could bring magic into your home just through PLAY?

As a parent, you may sometimes feel tired, overwhelmed, anxious or angry, and you have every right to feel these things. Entering into a mindset of play will help you to relax more and connect better with your little one.

Play is essential to creating a strong bond between parents and children. It is a way for your child to ‘rehearse’ different life situations, cope better with intense emotions, build relationships and – most importantly – have fun!

Play is not only essential to kids’ well-being but also has many benefits for adults. It reduces daily stress, strengthens connection, supports empathy and builds problem-solving skills.

Out of the Box FUN started with a DREAM – to bring PLAY to every aspect of life. In addition to our FUN Boxes with different themes, we have created two more unique products to achieve this dream:

The first is our Calm Down Basket, filled with creative and dynamic materials for your child to engage with when dealing with their strong emotions.

The second is the Travel Set, designed to inject more fun and playfulness into your day-to-day journeys, weekend trips and holidays.

Calm Down Basket

For children, calming themselves down is never an easy task. To learn how to do this, they first need to identify and understand their emotions. Even though they may know, on some level, this need to better manage their emotions, it may still be very challenging for them. What will help them is learning to talk about their emotions and practising certain techniques for calming down.

The Calm Down Basket will help your child find positive ways of dealing with strong emotions. Sometimes sensorial materials will support them, but other times they might need to take deep breaths or even do some colouring to keep their minds off the negative thoughts that arouse these intense emotions.

“When you travel with your children, you are giving them something that can never be taken away… Experience, exposure, and a way of life.” Pamela T. Chandler

The joy of travelling to new places, home and abroad, brings many new experiences: discovering new countries and cultures, seeing beautiful cities and landscapes, and eating delicious food. This time of being together as a family without the responsibilities of work feels priceless. We feel increasingly excited as the day of departure approaches. Whether you are going to a summer resort or a ski centre – or simply out on a day of sightseeing – it doesn’t change the fact that we have to be prepared for travelling with our children. The long queues, the boring flight or car ride, and the unforeseen glitches and delays can be very tiring for all the family.

During long journeys children often get bored because they don’t have the space and freedom to move and play. The first thing they think of when feeling bored is … screen time! Playing video games, watching a movie or YouTube – these are what they want to do. It is worth noting, though, that screen time is unlikely to be remembered as one of your child’s all-time favourite family moments! 

We have a unique solution to this common problem:

A boredom-busting travel bag we have specially curated to bring FUN, CREATIVITY and STIMULATION to long journeys. Add your child’s favourite snacks, and together you are ready for exploring the wonders of the world.
