    playful

    Play is a seriously powerful state learning but more than that it is supposed to be fun! We keep that in mind and make sure we have fun doing what we do.

    from our founder

    I was inspired started after seeing how much my nephew Ben loved the busy-board my older brother had built is 8 month old son. Ben absolutely loved this board and would play on it for hours, which is no mean feat for an energetic, starting-to-toddler! After seeing it I did some research and discovered parents had been creating these homemade busy-boards for years, however there was nothing available on the market for those less DIY inclined parents.

    Trying to create a commercial version of these busy-boards posed the very difficult question of what to include on the board, which could only be answered for the individual child user and depended on their age, stage of development and specific interest. These was made doubly difficult as these things all change rapidly during early childhood!

    After playing around with a few designs I had our eureka moment to make a modular system that was able to adapt and grow with the children using it and MURO was born.

    Ever since then I've been fascinated by child development and the importance of play in acquiring of new skills. Through my study of play I've come to realise that curiosity is the common starting point of both playing and learning, this has inspired me to design objects that spark curiosity and encourage interactions that help children cumulatively develop the keys skills the need.
