  1. I love this time of year, as the world seems so full of promise. No matter what is going on in the rest of the world, the cycle of life continues. Gardens are starting to look colourful (although it has been known for us to be making snowmen in the Easter holidays before!!)

    It is also a good time to spring clean our lives and discard things that are no longer useful to us, and hopefully that includes a bit of time for us to recharge our batteries.  

    Here in Northamptonshire, we are nearing the end of our Easter Holidays (which started on 31st March), although I believe for most of you, Easter is right in the middle. Either way, I hope you are all having a lovely break and finding some time to relax.

    We know that sometimes over the school holidays, whether it is a rainy day, or a car journey, you just need something to keep them busy. I also love putting together little activity sheets, (a throwback to my teaching days!), and hope to be able to do more of these in the future – so keep an eye out on our social media.

    Also, please email me on [email protected] if you would like me to email you a copy of the answer booklet 😊

    If you have any comments or suggestions on how we can improve our booklets, please do leave a comment below.

    Happy Easter!!

  2. How do you use the PlayBag?

    PlayBag Maxi Instructions

    The PlayBag is very easy to use, and each one comes with its own “Care Card” which explains how to use and look after your PlayBag.

    To make up into its bag form you simply start at one of the handles, and do up each set of poppers in turn, do the same at the other side, fill with toys and fold over the Velcro flap to secure everything inside.

    Check out our short demo video on using the PlayBag Mini here.


    Where do you use the PlayBag?

    The PlayBag was designed to be used anywhere!! We take ours everywhere, for spontaneous play! We find them especially useful while travelling to alleviate boredom, and for when we are eating out. Check out our PlayBag Adventures page for more ideas as to where you can use your PlayBag.

    Is it suitable for travel?

    The PlayBag was born to travel. The PlayBag mini is an ideal size for travel as it fits perfectly on the lap in cars and busses, or on tables in planes and trains. The maxi also doubles as an overnight bag for the odd night away. Why not lay it on top of your duvet for an undulating interactive bedtime story!

    What toys are suitable to use with a PlayBag?

    We don’t like to be too prescriptive about this, as you are only limited by your imagination which knows no bounds!! However, we are particularly fond of wooden vehicles, Lego, Playmobil and character figures. Check out our blog on our top ten favourite toys to use with a PlayBag.

    How much can I fit into the PlayBag?

    The PlayBag maxi has plenty room for a good number of toys as well as some snacks and PJ’s if needed!

    The PlayBag mini is meant for shorter journeys, however it can still fit a good number of toys in it!


    Please see our FAQ page for more answers to our Frequently Asked Questions, however, please do leave a comment if you have any other questions that you would like answered.
