What our parents say...

"I purchased Busy Things to improve the numeracy and literacy skills of my three children.  Miner birds helped my children with their mental maths and supports their learning at home very well including supplementing their homework."
Zainab Bashir

"I think Busy Things is great value and a fantastic addition to my 3-year-old daughters learning.  She loves the games and regularly asks to play them.  Her favourites' are feeding the monkey and painting the dinosaur.  For me, I enjoy knowing she is learning specific things whilst playing."
