I wish An African Salad’s Busy Box had been around when my kids were babies and toddlers. The Busy Box is like the ultimate baby and toddler toy, if you have this, you need NO other toy for your toddler, it’s utterly fabulous and guaranteed to keep your toddler busy for HOURS!

The Busy Box

Has to be the cleverest toddler toy I’ve yet to see!

The Busy Box is handmade made from recycled, eco-friendly wood and painted with washable (WINNING) non-toxic, lead-free water based paint. 

Guaranteed to keep your toddler busy for hours

While they learn important skills too. Push, pull, zip, fasten, manoeuvre a car around a track, open doors, switch lights on, and tie shoe laces. Children will love playing with this bright and colourful Busy Box, which has numerous activities to help them explore and learn the how-to of everyday tasks – all in one place!

Developmental Benefits of the Busy Box

Developed in consultation with a host of childhood development experts, including parents, teachers, occupational therapists and play therapists, the Busy Box promises the following developmental benefits:

  • Build Fine Motor Skills: There are two main types of motor skills your child develops – fine motor and gross motor skills. Gross motor skills deal with the coordination of large muscle groups and are responsible for activities like running, walking, balancing etc.
    Fine motor skills are those that require the ability to use and coordinate small muscle groups, which are important for writing, colouring, tying shoe laces, buttoning and zipping – among other things. The Busy Box encourages natural curiosity and investigative skills, while helping your child to develop his/her fine motor skills and coordination.
  • Through actively using their senses, it helps to build nerve connections in the brain’s pathways. This leads to a child’s ability to complete more complex learning tasks and supports cognitive growth, language development, gross motor skills, social interaction and problem solving skills.
  • Developing and enhancing memory
  • Having loads of fun both independently as well as in a group, without relying on others for happiness and entertainment. It also helps to build self-confidence and social independence which enables children to feel comfortable in any situation.

The Busy Box is available exclusively online at An African Salad and retails for R2499!
