Little Imagineers is the brainchild of Tom and Helen and their sofa climbing children C and H (editor’s note – names changed to initials) and was born from the necessities and struggles of lockdown. Tom and Helen were forced into home-play by the lockdown and used their imaginations to create pirate ships out of their mattresses and upturned sofas with their 2 children. Having developed the idea from those early beginnings, they sought to build their solution and satisfy the daily need for imaginative, physical and role based play craved by children.
Tom Harper, Founder of Little Imagineers said:
“We are very excited to launch the Padoo so other parents and children can enjoy the endless benefits of active, open-ended play and den-making without boundaries in the comfort of their own home. After the struggles of lockdown and back to school looming let’s make home a fun zone!”
Angus Imrie Angus Imrie, Actor, who stars as Merlin in ‘The Kid Who Would be King’ and Prince Edward in the Crown who is an ambassador for Little Imagineers summed up the spirit of the Padoo in a nutshell:
“Play which uplifts our spirits, forms the foundation of our relationships and enables us to thrive creatively in adulthood. Quite frankly, I think children between the ages of 2-8 should be doing little else apart from engaging in this kind of imaginative play. It is absolutely instinctive to them.”
