So many parents know the feeling – you spend all that time choosing the perfect present, but it’s the cardboard packaging that’s actually the hit with the child. It was with this in mind that Rae Thomas developed Kids Place – play solutions in a box.

Kids painting supplies

Kids Place cardboard houses are quick and easy to assemble and pack away. They offer hours of painting and colouring fun as children create their own tailor-made environment inside and out, followed by role-playing galore. Is it a house? Is it a barn? Is it a school?
