A new erasable creative board has launched via Kickstarter this week to provide children, playgroups and schools with a unique way to create without the need for digital devices. Watch the demonstration video below to learn more about the pie shaped erasable creative board which is available via Kickstarter with earlybird pledges available from $39 with free shipping available throughout the United States.
Worldwide shipping is also available and once the Kickstarter campaign is successful worldwide shipping is expected to take place during December 2019. The unique pie shape allows each piece to be joined together to form a circle so children can easily collaborate, socialise, and share the experience with their friends and family. The creator behind CreativPie explains more about its inspiration :
“CreativPie has been a collective effort of my friends and co-workers who want to offer their own children a different way to be creative, social, focused, and entertained. When I was growing up in Pennsylvania my friends and I would often spend our free time in the streams and woods behind our houses. We’d build forts, play in the mud, and climb trees. Some of my fondest memories are from those days and looking back, we had it pretty good. Looking around these days, most kids don’t have the opportunity to do this because they believe they have something better and we’ve even encouraged it through our subconscious constant use of our phones. Whether it’s being played on an iPad or smart phone, mobile gaming has really taken over many of our children’s early development years and it’s taking its toll on society.“
“Nowadays most parents walk around with their mobile phones almost glued to their hands. It seems we really are addicted to our devices. We spend most of our time chatting with friends, scrolling through social media, surfing the Web and playing games, all in the name of keeping our brains entertained. Our eyes are always focused on the small screens and there’s that constant clicking sound that can be heard everywhere. It’s not easy being a parent. We often are worn out and the easiest thing to do is to hand them the iPad or phone so we can get some rest, but what effect is that having on our kids”
