Making Clean Up Achievable with Play Pouch!

Something I have learned as a mum is that cleaning up is not a natural skill. Early on I expected that my kids would simply pick up the things they had scattered and put it where it should be. Well boy was I wrong! Realistically I never cared for tidying until I had kids of my own and then I thought that everyone could easily keep things in basic order. But now I appreciate that the idea of keeping things in order is not something that comes naturally to most kids. Fair enough! A good percentage of kids will be motivated by pleasing their caregiver or parent. If a task is easy to do and kids know that they will please...

Keeping Jude Safe

When the idea for play pouch came about, my third son Jude was about the size of a peanut in my belly. I had no idea at that point how important and relevant the play pouch would become in our lives not just for the quick tidy up, toy storage and creative play but for keeping Jude safe!

At age 4 he is still in nappies and requires help with most daily self-care functions and activities and EVERYTHING goes in his mouth! Play pouch continues to keep Jude entertained at his older brother’s games of cricket and soccer, countless family and friend...
