Here is a snapshot of the items in the kit. Contents include a paper journal, activity pad, washable markers, crayons, wooden craft, tape measure, safety scissors (that do cut paper), fuzzy coloring, sticker activity (play passport), finger puppet, and inflatable globe.

Our Story

My Busy Kit started as a business that Lorraine and Annabel ran from 2007 to 2011. Ideal for family travel, My Busy Kits are designed to keep children creatively entertained while out and about. The lunchbox-sized bags included items for coloring, pretend play, fine-motor development, and real-world discovery. Working together, Lorraine and Annabel distributed over 5,000 kits nationwide. Their most notable account was the bookstore at San Francisco Airport.

Apps for Kids

By 2010 they expanded the product into iPhone and iPad apps. The apps were designed to let children engage in open-ended creative play. Lorraine partnered with two friends, one who programmed the apps and another who did the graphic design. The apps are My Little Suitcase and Snow Wonder, FREE on the iTunes App Store (see privacy policy for more info about the apps).
