Behind Every Small Business, Is Someone With A BIG Dream...
The Little Sensory Box is a small family run business based in Peterborough. It was created by me; Dee, whilst I was on maternity leave with my son Alfie.
As a first-time mum, I threw myself in to joining mum groups to meet new friends and to get out of the house to keep sane (as most new mum's do) and found myself booking us in to our local sensory classes. We both loved it and Alfie all through the sessions was curious and mesmerized by all the activities we did.
I could see how much Alfie got from these sessions; how much it benefited his development, how much it benefited me as a mother and how much it helped us to bond. I wanted to be able to continue these activities from the comfort of our own home.
This is what inspired me to set up this business; to provide other parents with the opportunity to recreate sensory play at home at an affordable price. To support their little one’s development and to help mum's and dads who may be struggling after birth to bond with their new babies.
I have now sold hundreds and hundreds of boxes all over the UK (and some overseas) to lots of happy babies, toddlers and mummas; which includes celebrities such as Lillie Lexie, Lily Pebbles and Beth Tweddle. Since launching, I have added personalised options, subscription boxes and a growing collection of sustainable wooden toys to compliment your sensory collection and which will continue to support your little one's development.
I have been featured by Made For Mums and My Bump 2 Baby who have also given me their "recommended by" badges and finished in the top 5 for best newcomers for local businesses for an award in Cambridgeshire.
My little business has gone from strength to strength this year and I have BIG plans for next year! So watch this space.
Thank you to all of you who support me, for your purchases, recommendations, shares and reviews. You are all the reason why this is possible and for that I am truly greatful.
