Imagine Box Risk Disclaimer
YOU MUST SUPERVISE YOUR CHILD AT ALL TIMES WHILE THEY PLAY WITH A IMAGINE BOX.
The contents of Imagine Box are objects that are not explicitly toys e.g Shells, drift wood & silicon muffin cups. Some of these objects are natural products that occur in nature. If any part of any object becomes broken discontinue use.
These objects support Heuristic play and the activities based on the Early Childhood Curriculum (EEC)in the Activity Book Provided.
Use your common sense while supervising and if any object breaks or cracks discontinue use or use it at your own risk.
Every child plays with toys differently due to their development, age, personality or mood. A toy that one child will use safely may not be safe for another. As the parent or caregiver you are the best judge of where your childs development is and must take responsibility by removing any object that you perceive as a danger to your child.
There are some items that are ideal for teaching your child safe use of items, one of the EEC activities is based around this concept. If your child has the object unsupervised they they could potentially cause harm, in order to teach your child how to safely use the objects they need to be exposed to them under supervision. For example the ribbon – showing how to wrap it around objects, not your body, rocks – don’t throw them indoors, only in certain outdoor settings away from people.
All the rocks and shells have been washed in vinegar for hygiene, the pine cones have been washed in water and dried in the sun.
All objects are bigger than a film canister.
