Ask any parent of a toddler and they can tell you that the biggest battle is not the meal times or the nap times. It is to keep them engaged when you are busy with something. Of course apps, TV and games help. But the little minds lose interest in them very quickly and look for new ways for entertainment. Also if you are at a restaurant, enjoying a family meal or shopping for some essentials or travelling- there are limited options you have to engage your toddlers and keep them busy. You need options to engage and entertain the and make sure they learn something in the process. And that's where Busy Bags come in handy.
