Currently our Senior Product Testers these two and a passion for genuine connection and lifelong learning led to the creation of Play Love Learn.
Coming to motherhood at 37 and again at 39, my career had been in Sports Coaching, and my study of a PG Cert in Elite Performance, looked at how we learn...Having worked in team sports for a lifetime, motherhood somehow felt, well, lonely. Despite two amazing happy, healthy babies that I'm unbelievably grateful for, what we lacked was a way to connect with other people at similar life stages, where you could be brutally honest in sharing the challenges, as well as celebrating the moments that melt your heart.
Simple things like choosing toys that they could have fun with, but that lasted more than 5 minutes and grew with them, as well as being a brand that aligned with our values, somehow seemed like a research project in it's own right. Looking for age appropriate ways to do fun activities with them to help us bond, connect and enjoy the moments led to a whole other crisis of confidence on what was best. Factually I could quote the research, importance and benefits of learning through play, stages of physical development and the huge importance of human connection, but what this looked like for babies & infants practically in a non insta-perfect life, versus the 20-30 year old men I was used to working with left me feeling rather overwhelmed!
Thankfully with laughter & tears all round, we've bumbled on through with the help of some amazing friends, professional contacts and family, near and far. The feeling I couldn't shake though, emphasized by all those able to say they'd felt the same, was the feeling that surely there was a way to help make this easier for others, and so, Play Love Learn was born.
We're starting with baby steps, and we hope you'll join us and be a part of the journey.
