This collection encourages children in their early years to look closely at the containers and handle them, to ask questions about what they may be used for and what makes a good container for a specific job.

The containers can be sorted in different ways, and encourages children to practice taking lids on and off or to open and close fastenings. This collection is perfect for good for schema (children who love putting things in and out of pots and containers). Try using a range of 'fillers' (pasta, rice, beans, coins) to see which is best suited to each container.


20+ items both common and unusual in a large willow treasure basket. Made from a wide variety of materials with a range of fastenings - designed to hold many different things.


This treasure basket of containers includes a Foxy Card with guidance and ideas, to ensure you get the most from this collection. 

Containers collection

  • Treasure baskets are based on firm educational research into early years play.

  • As the items in a treasure basket have not been designed as toys, children should always be supervised during play.
