Frequently asked questions
Bitsy Box is an entrepreneurial firm specialized in early childhood development by designing and utilizing themed boxes containing a number of hands-on activities, employing real play as well as sensory play. These activities are designed to stimulate children’s senses and enrich their fine motor skills.
Bitsy Box allows the child to create their own themed boxes. As the child explores the content, they can create new combinations and narrate new stories; all of which enhance their developmental capacities.
Bitsy Box targets children during their early childhood development years. Our boxes are designed to enchant children of the age group of 3-6 (preschoolers), especially that the themes, the content, and the activities are chosen to stimulate children’s senses and enhance their developmental journey. The boxes, nonetheless, are not exclusive to that age group, as they can yield equally important results.
Sensory Play is quite important for early childhood development. Hands-on play stimulates the child’s senses and engages them in making new combinations using the content of the boxes. Furthermore, the child can get in touch with their senses and explore the functions of things around them.
There are a number of scientific studies regarding the importance of filler, particularly soil and sand for the development of the child. In fact, statistics show an increasing prevalence of epilepsy amongst children these days. Many scholars attribute this increase to the changing lifestyle of our time and the lack of public spaces available for children to play. Furthermore, it is proven that children do need to be in touch with soil and sand to release extra energy and abnormal electrical activity in the brain, which may lead the child to become extra hyper.
Our boxes are divided into different themes. The first box to be released is “My Little Garden” Box. In this box, you can find the following: premeasured flour; premeasured oil; premeasured cocoa; gardening tools; wax colors; apron; set of paint pots; 1 paint brush; 2 wooden flowers; 1 rock; 2 straws; an Arabic book on the basics of gardening; felt activity and table covers.
