The travel version of our busy boards is a light a portable toy that will never get boring as there are elements that a young child can use as well as some tricky ones that would be still challenging for a 4 year old. Do contact us if you'd like to see particular elements on your travel board or to cater for a particular age and/or interest of your child!

If you want to thread lightly, unsure whether your child will play with a big and expensive busy board - then this is an excellent introductory experience for your wallet and your child's senses!

If you ever wanted to make you toddler busy while knowing that he/she is developing hand eye coordination, practicing his/her fine motor skills and engaging the brain in the puzzle like activity, then you need a busy board.

The activity board is a great sensory toy toy to be enjoyed by children of both sexes and different age - speaking from experience here!

Our boards come with a coffee break guarantee!

On the other end of the spectrum, the fidget nature of the sensory board helps maintain the fine motor skills and hand eye coordination in elderly who are suffering from Alzheimer's and dementia.

Having created the same board for our children, we’ve put a lot of thought into ensuring the board elements are:
• Safely secured onto the board and no lose parts are going to fall off unintentionally
• All corners/sharp edges are rounded over; hardware details have no rough edges, non-pinching and safely fastened.
• The other side of the board is smooth, no element or nail is poking through

• This activity set is not meant for children to use as teethers or chew toys. Please do not allow children who still "mouth" things to use this activity set, as detachable parts could be a choking hazard. Parental supervision is recommended.
