The Rainy Day Box by Creative Charlie beat over 100 products to take the overall winner title in the Toys and Games category at the Practical Pre-School Awards 2008.

The Rainy Day Box has been carefully designed to be packed full of fun activities - including make a mobile, make puppets, make butterflies and make a pom-pom pet - to keep pre-school children busy on a rainy day. Along with educational settings, the box is perfect for use at home, and provides an opportunity for adult and child to engage together in creative play.

The Practical Pre-School Awards identify and reward excellence in the field of educational equipment, childcare, books and toys, suitable for children aged from 0-8 years old to use in professional childcare and educational settings.

The Awards testing panel gave The Rainy Day Box a score of 97.8%, and said about the product;

"The children loved following the work sheets and began to implement ideas of their own into their creations. It's value as a creative resource is immense and it incorporates flexible and enjoyable activities, as well as helping to teach children about the environment. Everything in the box was great. The instructions were easy to understand and follow. The Rainy Day Box had a charming sense of simplicity, and my five-year-old was able to use it independently, as well as being encouraged to play co-operatively and share. It has fantastic educational value and appealed to children throughout the trial. Adaptable, original and a lot of fun!"

“Creative Charlie has only been trading for a year, and this is the first award we have entered, so I’m thrilled to have won.” Kerri Sellens, director and founder of Creative Charlie Ltd.
