What are Pipity Activity Cases?
How many times have you wished that you could just grab something to keep the kids entertained? I know I have. When we are in the car and out and about in restaurants, we try hard to entertain them with DVDs and scrappy bits of paper and snapped crayons. I sometimes even have to resort to a biro that's sitting at the bottom of my handbag covered in melted chocolate crumbs. You get the picture.
Children are easily bored and I know this only too well, with having two to entertain at once. They love their DVDS, but we are caravanners and our long journeys are sometimes too much to bear for them and me. There's only so much Fireman Sam a mother can take! It's stressful.
Well I think I may have found the answer to all my woes this summer, in the form of the Pipity Activity Case. As you can see in the picture, it is seriously cute.
I came across this ingenious piece of kit when Kate, the designer, got in touch to see if we would like to review it. Kate is an award winning mummy of 3 children. She designed all of the Pipity products and packaging from her kitchen table in Devon - even the artwork. She fully understands the needs of parents when it comes to entertaining children and is keen to give her children an alternative solution to balance screen use and I think she might just have managed this, with the Pipity Activity Case.
The Pipity Activity Case is approximately A5 in size, so is perfect for grabbing at the same time as your handbag when you are heading out. It is made of oil cloth material, perfect for when you are eating out and spillages happen and it will stay looking new, for longer, in general. It has a grab handle and a shoulder strap, perfect for throwing over the kid's shoulders when you need them to help out with the carrying. The case is also hard backed and contains elastic straps for keeping everything in place on bumpy car journeys.
I liked how the case came with a little information leaflet to guide your child through the features of the case. It also came with a colour co-ordinated ruler, scissors, pencil sharpener, glue stick, pencil and coloured pencils, each with their own dedicated storage compartment in the case. No more pencils rolling under the car seat. Hurrah! There is also a starter activity book included, but you can purchase other books from the Pipity Actvity Case website as well as other extras too.
The Pipity Activity Case Extras.
Yes, there are extra activity books for purchase. We were sent the Dress-up dolls, On-the go games and puppet show books. There is also a great little A5 portfolio available for your children to store all of their creations in, which is great, if you like to treasure your children's creations as most parents do.
I'm completely sold by this concept. I love how it can be used over and over again as it's refillable and I particularly like the size. It will be used, by us, in the car, in restaurants and in the caravan.
