Secondly, we present the messy play in a way you won’t find anywhere else. It looks great (for about 6 seconds until the babies get stuck in).
Thirdly, we use a lot of materials that you won’t find used anywhere else. We use food items such as. Cornflour, Maize, Beans, Peas, Mash, Sliced Oranges, Potatoes, Water Beads, Rice Pudding etc etc..
