UPDATE: 12/18/14 This has been a really long, drawn out process mostly due to issues with suppliers. Nothing has gone smoothly on this end and I thank you from the bottom of my hear for your patience!
Pre-Ordering is no longer available. However, as the boxes DO become available individually, I will add links here to their individual product pages.
NOTE: US CUSTOMERS ONLY PLEASE: Shipping out of the US is just too cost prohibitive for this phase of the project. Thank you for understanding. We hope to have this worked out for when the boxes are available in the store full time. Thank you!
UPDATE: Scroll down to see the themes for each of our 6 boxes!
NEW UPDATE: Double Check The BONUSES! THERE’S A NEW ONE! ♥
Little Learning Lovies needs your HELP! 🙂
We have a great new product idea that we are super excited about and we need your help to make it happen…
We want to make and send you Busy Boxes that your kids will LOVE to play with over and over. Each box will contain all the materials you need to enjoy hours of engaging, educational fun. Our current planned boxes include activities for 3 -5 year olds that will help you keep them happily and gainfully occupied while you work with your older kids. These will come in handy boxes for easy clean up and most of them will also be easy to grab and take when you’re heading to a friends house who might not be ready to entertain your little one.
So what exactly will you be getting?
This is where I ask you to trust me just a little bit… ♥
You see, this is a brand new product line and by pre-ordering them, you are going to help us fund the project. This means that I don’t have all of the materials on hand yet to show you what they will be. However, I CAN tell you that we will be using high quality materials (NO paper cups or “recycled” trash from home!), creating a variety of learning experiences and keeping the consumables to a minimum so that you can use these boxes over and over and over again.
I have a 3 year old myself and I know how important it is to keep engaging activities handy so that you don’t fall back on the TV to keep them occupied. Help me create the first of what I hope will be MANY fun activity boxes so that your little ones can have fun too!
Each Busy Box will contain 2 or more activities. We’ll create experiences that encourage some of these important early learning skills:
- Fine motor skills
- Fine motor control
- Sensory Fun
- Lots more!
The boxes will each have some instruction cards designed for parents so they can choose to guide their children towards a particular use of the materials if they’d like to. We’ll create activities suitable for each age/ability level so that your materials can grow with your kids. They will also be more useful to folks who have, say, a 3 year old AND a 5 year old, so both children can use the same materials in different ways to keep the learning fun.
NOTE: Because these boxes will contain some small parts, I cannot legally recommend them for children under the age of 3. 🙂 Thanks for understanding!
If you have a question about this new line of products, please feel free to ask.

I’m limiting the number of each level for now and I can’t wait to order up the materials. As soon as I have materials in hand, you’ll start to see images and descriptions about each of the boxes we’re planning. Thank you SO MUCH for your help in making this new product line a reality!
We have 6 boxes planned for the official launch of the Busy Box product line.
- Rainbow Box (colors and buttoning practice, Imaginative Play)
- Pond Box (counting and colors with a frog/pond theme, Imaginative Play)
- Alphabet Box (Letter shapes, Upper and Lowercase)
- Shape Box (Shapes, Size Sequencing)
- Number Box (counting, sequencing, sorting)
- Farm Box (Counting, Colors, Size, Imaginative Play)
Here’s a look at one of the two planned activities for box 2!
When will the finished boxes ship out?
If you are pre-ordering now, you’ll be contacted as soon as the materials are in with information about what’s in each of the 6 boxes. You’ll be able to pick your boxes at that time and then we’ll ship them out. When will this happen? Well that all depends on when this project reaches it’s full funding! The faster we get pre-orders in, the faster this project will be able to get off the ground. It is my sincere hope that we’ll be able to ship these out by mid-June 2014. You can help us reach that goal by pre-ordering now and by sharing this page with all your friends so they pre-order too!
Is this a monthly club?
Much as I’d love to say yes… I have to say NO! This is NOT a monthly club. Order one, order 3 order 6, they’ll all come together when they are ready to ship. But YOU can certainly hide away the extras for a rainy day and just show them one when it comes in 🙂
