The joys of cardboard boxes

The joys of cardboard boxes

There is no better toy than a cardboard box. A nursery in Norwich sent us this note:

We received our order yesterday and are really pleased with it, but the cardboard boxes have proved more popular today than new equipment! They have been caves, dens and houses. One little boy got inside and said "I'm slipping down the plug hole" and sat down out of sight in the box. Thought you might like to know you have a market for large cardboard boxes!!

In bygone years we used huge metal staples to close our cartons; but when we realised these cartons were used for play, we switched to closing them with tape which does not scratch. Because boxes bring pleasure to so many children, we send at least one with every consignment – and because our furniture comes fully assembled, most of the boxes are BIG!
