“I’ve always believed that buildings are more than just bricks and mortar. Each building has its own story to tell, and purpose to fulfil.
I wanted to inspire children to learn about the iconic grand and notable buildings around the world that I admire so much, so I put on my thinking cap and eventually came up with the concept for Little World Builder.
I tried it out on my own children and others in my circle of family and friends, and after perfecting the details by trial and error, came up with an educational product which I feel is as singular and special as the buildings I’ve chosen to include to date.”
“Little World Builder is as much fun and as engaging as a game, but each kit has all sorts of different elements which capture children’s imaginations and interest.
I wanted to make learning fun, while celebrating buildings and encouraging children to develop a respect for the wonderful edifices around us, and I believe I have managed to achieve this aim with the Little World Builder kits.
To me great buildings don’t just represent a landmark. They are labours of love, created with care and attention to detail by innovative, dedicated crafts people, for a noble purpose.
The buildings I’ve selected to include in the Little World Builder range, each represents different cultures and historic eras, as well as being fascinating structures in their own right.”
Maggie’s novel invention has proved a great hit since the Little World Builder kits were made available to purchase by subscription, or as one-offs, here online.
Based in Swindon, Wiltshire, in the UK, she’s already working on expanding the range of building kits available, and looks forward to finding other ways of developing the Little World Builder brand, which has become a true “mumpreneur” success story.
Maggie invites you browse through the various Little World Builder kits on offer in her online store.
