Fun Toys That Teach and Entertain Children Allow Parents to Get More Work Done
VICTORIA, Australia June, 2012 – Entertaining children can be an ongoing challenge for many working parents. Whether mums work from home or the office they have the same dilemma – how to keep kids occupied while they work, without resorting to using the TV as a ‘babysitter’. Studies show that children who play independently grow up and become more responsible and confident adults and as a bonus for parents, children who can find new and educational ways to entertain themselves utter the phrases “I’m bored!” and “what can I do?” far less often. Most parents recognise the need to teach their children to play independently and to give them toys that entertain and educate but actually putting that into practice with children can be difficult for time poor parents. www.oola.com.au/
Oola offers educational preschool toys like jack in the box, dinosaur and jigsaw puzzles for kids, magnetic dress up dolls, sticker sets and other fun educational toys similar to those today’s parents had when they were growing up. Oola provides toys that not only hold the limited attention spans of children, but also encourage a child’s creativity such as kids craft kits that allow them to make their own friendship bracelet or kids’ jewellery, lip balm or perfume.
Oola Founder and CEO Kelly Brough says, “My goal is to create a business that will lead by example in providing parents flexibility in the work place. By catering to the individual schedules of mothers who often want to, and can do, excellent work in the hours where they are not required to be looking after their own children.”
Oola’s educational toys from brands such as Ravensburger, Djeco and Zoob that promote open-ended play are the accidental result of the international gifts that founder Kelly received for her own children. “I want to bring the fantastic products I’d been given as gifts for my children from friends and family living all over the world to the Australian market which is dominated by mass market (plastic fantastic) products featured heavily in TV advertising,” Kelly adds.
Oola also carries educational toys that the whole family will enjoy. Mums and dads can unwind with their kids at the end of a busy working day as they enjoy playing family games like Brain Quest SMART Game, Charades Kids on Stage, Scavenger Hunt for Kids and Slammers, to name a few. Oola’s fun and educational toys come from Germany, the UK, France, New Zealand, USA, Canada and Hong Kong. www.oola.com.au/
