Our Story

Once upon a time, there was a little girl called Suzi. She loved playing outdoors, and believed that she could travel anywhere she wanted on her beloved bike. She used to think the family garden was an enormous enchanted forest and that there were lots of fairies living in the trees. She believed in magic unicorns and even saved money regularly so she could buy one. Years passed, and she became mum to Master Creative Soul and Miss Giggles. She also trained and qualified as a developmental psychologist and play therapist. In this role, she is continually amazed and inspired to observe how play can help a child so easily and naturally. Her superpower is in being able to create a game out of anything and any time. Making a child happy is what she finds most meaningful and fulfilling.

Once upon a time, there was a little girl called Lidya who loved playing with her siblings, her friends and her parents. Her favourite game of all was playing with her dolls. She would often pretend to bake cakes for them all so she could make them feel better. Many years later, she became a mum to Miss Playful and Miss Sunshine. She also worked as an event and procurement specialist for many years. She is naturally a lively and energetic person and gets her energy from play, arts and crafts. She particularly enjoys drawing, colouring and playing with clay. She also enjoys baking with her children, who love being her little helpers.

Lidya & Suzi

Suzi and Lidya first met when they were little kids. Their lives took them on different paths and in different directions until they met again, many years later, when they had both become mums. After spending some time together again as friends they realised that they shared a passion for play. So, they decided to create “Out of the Box FUN” as a way of supporting caregivers and their children to LEARN and have FUN while playing.  

They look forward to playing their part in helping you to create beautiful memories with your little ones!
