1) If the busy book is only slightly dirty, you may clean with a lint roller. Do be gentle!
2) You may also wipe with a slightly moist cloth soaked in mild detergent or mild liquid hand wash and water of approximately 30c. Do not rub the book.
3) For deeper cleaning, lightly press book in warm (30c) soapy water (or mild detergent), releasing bubbles. Rinse thoroughly. Do not leave any soap behind. Lightly press on the book to release water, and lightly press the pages/book between 2 towels to drain water. Do not wring the book. Lay on a rack in a well ventilated spot (no direct sunlight) to air dry for at least 12 hours or until completely dry.
NOTE: Do not machine wash, dry clean, soak, rub, squeeze or wring the book and pages, or dry in heat or direct sunlight. Ensure the sink where you wash and the area where you dry is clean so your books won't pick up new stains. When in doubt, it is recommended to use gentler methods to clean the book (i.e. use a lint roller or with a damp cloth).
The book is vibrant in colors and highly interactive with many moving pieces to engage a child sufficiently. It is equivalent to toys neatly packed away in a book. So convenient to bring for travel too. Reduced screen time for my child :)
Thank you, Yi Ying, for your wonderful review and your support! We are thrilled to hear that your girl enjoys her busy books and that it keeps her engaged and away from the screen! We hope she continues to love her busy books! :)
Love the colourful designs and thoughtful creations which helps my little one (2yo) be more engaged and explore her creativity. Very well stitched and not easy to be torn. Only part I felt cld be better improved was that some of the pockets could be abit wider so it’s easier to stuff the piece back into the slots as some of them were too tight.
Thank you dear for your glowing review and for sharing pictures of your girl playing her busy book. We are so glad she enjoyed it! Thank you also for your feedback, we will try to create larger pockets in future. Thank you, and we wish you and your family a very happy new year!
Very well made busy book. There are some improvements from the otter and hedgehog busy book which I am super happy! Which is the eyes of the animals is not a stick on and small parts of the fruits being sewn in properly. Well thought on the design and characters of each page! Very vibrant colours as well! Love it alot!!!
