Imagination thrives outdoors. It’s a belief that educational-play brand The Curious Bear was built on. Founder Emily is an early years childcare expert and Forest School leader who believes that all children benefit from early engagement with the nature around them. She was raised with plentiful time outdoors and wants to provide other children with the same opportunities and inspiration.
So, she started her business and took on the super-cute bear mascot drawn by her mum. The brand makes gender-neutral kits for ages 4 and above, designed to boost independence, while improving physical, visual and sensory skills. The toys are plastic-free and made using sustainable materials wherever possible.

The Curious Bear Kits
These beautifully designed and well-thought-out kits open up a world of possibilities in young minds. Think potion-making and crafting fairy doors, story building with wooden prompt blocks and moulding wild characters from clay. The enchanted potions kits include colourful, child-safe ingredients such as rose petals, enchanted crystals, magical seeds and even mermaid scales (sort of), plus labelled bottles and wooden tools to enable hours of potion-making fun. Other kits include colourful modelling clay for free-form creation.
You can encourage green-fingered little ones with The Curious Bear plant growing kits. The garden kits include easy instructions for you to follow together, as well as all the extras you need like plant markers and wooden pots. You can choose from RHS-approved bee-friendly flower mixes, quirky – and handily unkillable – cactuses, or a kit containing all the herbs you need for a healthy and delicious spaghetti sauce.
Gifts with Purpose
The Curious Bear kits make wonderful gifts for creative little ones from four upwards. If you love to give something that’s different, educational, planet-friendly and wonderfully imaginative too – you’ve found the jackpot. Kids will adore the activities while parents will love the kits not just for their formative content, but for their wholesome, natural aesthetic too. They incorporate bright, engaging colours and tactile natural materials to encourage sensory development.
The potions kits have all the real, bubbling results of a science experiment, to help bring the magic to life with a little dose of imagination. They’re totally safe to use together and encourage guardians and children to get outside and explore together, while learning interesting facts, valuable motor skills and creative powers.
