Boredom Buster Gifts

If you’re looking for a boredom busting activity for the kids, then you’ve come to the right place. Pre-pandemic, our kits were sought after as an ideal way to pass the time on a long journey, whether by train, plane or car – a fun, easy no-mess activity to while away the miles. Now it’s more a question of whiling away the hours with restrictions on outdoor activities, limited social interaction for children, and too much screen time on mobiles, laptops and TV. Building a bear at home is a great hand-on interactive alternative to digital viewing and the children get to make a friend for life – quite literally !

The concept is simple, but the children derive so much pleasure from making their own bear or animal, adding a heart and making a wish to bring their new cuddly friend to life. Then there is the birth certificate to fill in – spend time with the children coming up with suitable names, again this can be turned into an activity in itself with suggestions popped into a hat or researching what the suggested names mean. You can add a T-shirt, which is an inexpensive option and offers extra creative fun with the children developing their own design which can then be coloured in with fabric pens (if you want to wash the T’s) or felt tips if not ! We offer a huge range of teddy bear and animal clothes, which can be bought along with the kit or let the children save up and buy extras for their teddy bear wardrobe in the future. With outfits galore, and accessories from shoes and slippers to sunglasses and activity passports, they’ll have the best dressed bears in town! You can add a voice recorder into which the children can record their very own message and then pop into the back of their bear. We guarantee that the adults will enjoy this build-a-bear activity as much as the children offering great family fun wherever you are, at home, in the park, locked in or on the move !
