Busy Brains Activity Packs wins second national competition

Busy Brains Activity Packs Hall: Hall 4 Stand: 4E96

Having been selected from hundreds of Theo’s previous Small Business Sunday Winners, Busy Brains has been awarded an exhibition space at the prestigious Spring Fair in Birmingham, an opportunity to showcase its popular activity cards for children from 0-5 in front of thousands of leading retail brand buyers.

The competition win is the second in 12 months for local Entrepreneur and former deputy head, Lauren Brown, having previously won membership to Theo Paphitis’ well-known Small Business Sunday Network and annual networking event. This national recognition follows 2 years of growth for Busy Brains since its launch just before lockdown.

The Spring Fair is the largest and longest running wholesale marketplace, and as such, investing in a stall at the event would be financially impossible for many small businesses.  Business and retail entrepreneur and self-confessed Shopkeeper, Theo, is well known for his support of small business owners and described this opportunity as “potentially life-changing” for the winners.

Former deputy headteacher and proud winner, Lauren said, “Having always told the children in my classes to aim high and have-a-go, I decided to apply never really expecting I would win. I am absolutely blown away and so excited at the new retail opportunities this could create for the business.”

Lauren's business, Busy Brains Activity Packs, provides parents and carers of babies, toddlers and children (under five) with simple, inexpensive, play-at-home activity ideas to support learning. Her activity cards, available through her website, www.busybrainsactivitypacks.co.uk have received rave reviews from families up and down the UK, with packs now being sent all over the world including Europe, Australia, Japan and Hawaii! They have also been endorsed by The Baby College and TV’s Sue Atkins.

Lauren said, I set up this business to help parents to raise happy, healthy children and encourage play that supports their development. Gaining interest from retail buyers would help me support thousands more families, so I’m hugely excited to grab this opportunity and see where Busy Brains can go from here.”
