What's In The Box?

What is in The Box?

The first Box David ever made was for a hospital children’s ward in Manchester over 10 years ago.

"I saw families struggling to connect, dealing with a lot of anxiety and surrounded by illness and a lot of unknowns. They were in desperate need of something positive to focus on.

Time and time again I’ve seen the same thing happen...when The Box opens up, people do too. And rooms that were quiet, suddenly get a lot more life and laughter in them. It’s beautiful."

Designed to give a reason to put down your phone, The Box is designed to help anyone playing laugh and have fun together.
