Do you limit screen time?

It is a concern for many, a godsend for some and a pain for other.

Interestingly, 87% of all of the parents surveyed, limit screen time.

Over the past 10-15 years or so, many toy companies have integrated technology into toys. It is not unusual for technology to be a part of a child’s life from an early age.  This brings the need for many parents to monitor their child’s use of technology and in some cases limit it.  Bigjigs Toys are designed to be enjoyed for pure play, with traditional play value and therefore, do not include technology or screens.

However, it is important for Bigjigs to understand our customers and their needs regarding toys.
