Remember when you were growing up, and you would play for hours with nothing more than a cardboard box, because you would use your imagination to turn that box into whatever you dreamed it to be?!
As a consequence of recent advances in technology, we don’t see children playing like this so much anymore. Cardboard boxes aren’t quite as much fun as they used to be. Children are seeking their entertainment from external sources more than ever before, and are less inclined to use their imaginations than they once were. The importance of developing these creativity skills, not only for your child’s development now, but also for their future careers as adults, should not be underestimated.
Whilst we don’t sell cardboard boxes at Room For Imagining, our products (and some of them come in cardboard boxes!) are designed to enable children to get creative.
Don’t get us wrong, we are not anti technology! Our ebooks are a testament to that! But our ebooks are also designed to get your children’s imaginations buzzing!
We are a new company, operating out of Auckland, New Zealand, but with our hearts set on building a company that will encourage children worldwide to imagine.
