What is Foxy Family

What are foxes like? Inquisitive and smart. Any parent would admit these are typical childrens’ traits. So would we.

Having watched our first born, and two years later another son, we automatically noticed their shared curiosity about the surrounding world. We saw how eager they were to explore, cross new boundaries and discover as much as they can on their own. We decided to make it easier for them. We adjusted our interiors to our curious little tots’needs, but it was not enough. We felt something was missing. So did our kids! Then we realized that what they were anxious to learn about were everyday household items. So we decided to let them play with them in the safest possible way. That is how we made our foxy busy boards with Leo, the Professional as the front runner. If you want to know more about our boards, please go to our blog: Busy Boards- What are they. manipulation tables - what is this.

Of course we didn’t have to invent everything from scratch. The market offers many busy boards. But we wanted to create a design with a brand new look. A board that would be ours, perfectly match the kids’ needs, and at the same time be safe and fancy.
When we were making our boards, safety was our priority, so we decided to use child safe paints only, sand and smooth all the edges, attaching each element with care and caution.
It is also crucial to us that we make our busy boards in Poland, cooperating largely with other small family businesses like ours.

Animal shapes of our busy boards are no co-incidence whatsoever. Initially, the choice was obviously foxes for their natural curiosity about the world and… because of our last name in Polish, which literally translates into English as Foxy. We intentionally chose toned colours that match most interiors. The number and types of attachments were selected not to overwhelm your toddler but to keep the little one entertained.

Also the names of our busy boards are not random! We were inspired by the names of our kids, our friends’ kids, and our neigbours’ kids. Thanks to that Leon, Hubbie, Susie, Steve or Nina are not only perfectly made busy boards. Each of them is different, as are the kids that were the inspiration behind their names.
Recently our foxy family has welcomed cousins from South America – Mika Drama Lama and Lazy Max and from Australia – koala Henry .

It is our dream that toddlers are able to develop their natural skills in a child-friendly environment. If you share our dream, make yourself comfortable and let us welcome you to our family.
