Resources for Early Years Play


This family business was started following a long and varied career in education, which included teaching, managing resources, advising and inspecting across all phases of education.

Curious Fox baskets and resource collections are designed especially to support educational play in the Early Years. We are specialists in putting together collections for babies, toddlers and early learners.

Our range of resources includes natural items and everyday items made from natural materials whenever possible, items which intrigue, give pleasure but are safe to play with.

We assemble and send out our products to individuals, local authorities, nurseries and children's centres across the country in orders of anything from 1 to 300+.

We have a particular interest in supporting childminders and those with special requests.

As well as resources for professionals we have a wide range of products designed especially for individual children playing at home with parents and carers.

Join our mailing list to receive up-to-date information on our products as we source new or interesting items.

What is a 'treasure basket'?

Traditional treasure baskets contain lots of natural materials, seeds, shells and other everyday items made from wood, metal or fabrics. There is no 'right' collection, each one could be different and tailored to the child's curiosity. Make your collections more interesting and exciting.

Do you provide International delivery?

We do have the facilities in place to allow us to sell internationally, please email us directly to arrange delivery details.

What are your delivery options?
