KiddieCube was born with a vision of creating inclusive play boxes for children of all abilities to help promote success in everyday activities.
As a registered Occupational Therapist in both Canada and the USA, the idea of creating therapeutic play boxes arose during the pandemic, when there was an immense need for children to be more engaged in purposeful play. Occupational Therapists often work in pediatric settings and gain valuable insight into the therapeutic needs of children with differing abilities who often require assistance with improving their self-care skills, emotional regulation, attention, and fine motor skills.
I had been creating in-home packages and kits for my students during the pandemic and was receiving an influx of requests from parents seeking suggestions for therapeutic toys/activities. Seeing first hand the benefits that these packages were having on my students, I decided to launch KiddieCube to provide more parents and their children with resources and ideas promoting purposeful play.
I am also a mother of two, one who is a very busy preschooler and the other who is in elementary school. Needless to say, I have the best little critics to assist with the trial and approval of all the monthly items going into our boxes.
I am so grateful for the KiddieCube community and to be on this journey with you all!
