Handmade slime that will freak your friends out– from Little One
This article originally appeared in our proudly South African print and online family magazine “Things to do With Kids- a Parents’ guide to PLAY”
Little One was founded in 2011 when our son was one year old. With my pre-school qualification and experience, I worked out a learning programme to use at home with my son, and then decided to share it with other mommies. The products I designed were mainly focused on the Afrikaans-speaking market, due to the shortage of educational material in Afrikaans.
It did not take long to become popular and I found myself translating my products to English as well, while continuing to design and develop more educational products. It has since grown into an online store with more than 400 digital products for babies to five-year olds.
Little One products include:
- Activities for babies
- Learning programme for 1 to 3-year olds
- Activity workbooks for 3 to 5-year olds
- Wall charts & flashcards (Alphabet, Numbers, Colours, Shapes, Songs, Rhymes, Themes, etc.)
- Weather chart
- Props: Songs, Rhymes, Stories
- Reward charts / Chore charts
- Playdough / Pom-pom activity mats
- Tooth fairy letter sets
