The Birth of BIGBOXPLAY
Four years ago, Pete Moffett, the Founder of BIGBOXPLAY and grandfather of six, came up with this idea because he was frustrated with all the digital and big media toys his grandson was receiving as gifts. Pete wanted something that stood out to provide a special connection with his grandson. After all, who doesn’t love playing in cardboard boxes and building forts? This concept came to be known as BIGBOXPLAY, and it is the first-of-its-kind ‘life-sized’ play system designed around children’s iconic love for playing in cardboard boxes and building imaginary worlds of forts, castles, and spaceships.
BIGBOXPLAY is perfectly timed to address increasing concerns over the excessive use of digital devices by children and the adverse impact they are having on their development. Kids today have less time for traditional free play, and creativity is declining. BIGBOXPLAY focuses on teaching essential life skills required for success in the 21st century, such as creativity, empathy, collaboration, and communication.
