Absolutely fantastic set for my kids. Lots of play prompts to give items and set ups and seller was great with communication. Can’t wait to order our next play set.

This is the third pack I have ordered. As normal great quality product and love the tins the playdough is in (phoenix dough smelled amazing). Everything is packaged in an eco friendly way. Both my 3yo and 8yo love them.

My daughter suggested you as she is a friend. My Grandson was delighted to open it on Christmas morning. Packaged beautifully, and thanks for the surprise inside. Nicola.
Creating messy and sensory play sets with a history twist!
Hi everyone I am Louise a mummy of 3 lovely little ones.
I am the owner of a messy play company called Mini History Hunters Messy Play. I started in September 2019 and ran hands-on workshops based around history! My preschool sessions were really making a mark with the little ones when we had to stop for lockdown and I've missed it so much!
So I decided to create an online shop to bring my messy play ideas to you in these messy and sensory play sets, which I have continued to base my play sets around history themes. I include a PDF of play ideas and printable resources with each pack to support your play and help you explore history with your little ones, whilst also developing and learning new skills, getting messy and having fun together along the way.
So why history themes?
My background is in Museum Education where I have worked for 10 years building workshops around worldwide and local history for school groups and families. I loved my job but life took me in another direction when my beautiful twins came along. I needed more flexibility to be at home but I also didn't want to give up my passion for engaging children with past cultures and peoples: and so Mini History Hunters was born!
It is never too early to begin exploring where things come from with your children. Conversations about the past can be as simple as comparing a toy, or an item around the home from something used a long time ago to what we use now.
I hope to help begin these conversations and maybe spark an interest in something new (yet old?) that you and your little ones can explore together.
Thank you for taking the time to read a little about me and I hope you enjoy your messy play set!
