Timeout Bags!

Timeout Bags provide screen-free kids entertainment packs, crammed with activities to keep kids busy at home.

Timeout Bags founded by Mum of two, Alix Porter (former Harvey Nichols Marketing Executive) creates award-winning activity packs for kids to engage busy minds and support independent play. She’s been doing her best to keep the nation’s kids off their screens and entertained throughout this strange year.

We love the activity packs, crammed with books, games, and toys, guaranteed to give kids a lift while the Tiered restrictions still mean kids can see and do a lot less than normal this year. Plus they won a Junior Design Award for ‘Best Travel Activity’ for kids.

Earlier in the year Alix started producing unique Lockdown Activity Packs to cheer up kids stuck at home. She’s been able to introduce a number of new exciting product ranges for lockdown, including science, crafts and clay projects, which are ideal projects to complete at home with the family. They are still very relevant for the festive holiday period and also they make a great gift (peace and quiet for mum too)!

You can even get your hands on ready-filled Christmas stockings. Yup, Santa’s sent his elves early to put these kits together to ease the pressure on Christmas Eve (well he’ll be very busy hand-sanitising between each stop after all)…

The Pre-filled plush Christmas Stockings come complete with gorgeous well-selected gifts, festive activities and treats. As well as being super fun, they are an essential shopping time saver as each Christmas stocking comes crammed with 15 festive fillers. Suitable for kids aged between 3-10 year olds

A portion of bag profits goes to UK based charity ‘Changing Faces’ the charity that helps founder’s Alix’s son Jago with his birthmark. Her two sons help road-test every activity she includes in her packs.

Each pack contains a unique formula of 8 x handpicked ‘hero’ products in a 100% cotton drawstring bag. Each activity is carefully selected for its educational and emotional benefits. Unique products include Manatee Mindfulness Packs, Get Whale Soon Bags and Lucky Dip Party Boxes.

Suitable for kids aged between 3- 10 years.​
