Created to get children back to the drawing board and create!

The unique pie shape allows each piece to be joined together to form a circle so children can easily collaborate, socialize, and share the experience with their friends and family. 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. CreativPie is perfect for play groups, schools, nurseries, and your home! 

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?

We all know this isn’t good for us and, from time to time, we put down the devices and are actually anxious when we hear the notification ring in the other room. We’re probably already lost, but what about our children?

Risks and challenges

We’ve done this once before and managed all the obstacles associated with developing a product that was completely built from the ground up. And, we managed to deliver to all the backers with great feedback. For this production, the fundamental challenges are the same but our knowledge is a lot better. To be quite honest, the only risk we foresee is not having enough backers to support our continued marketing efforts to get children back to the drawing board and creating. Please help us make this campaign ever greater and we can make an even bigger impact. It’s time to get kids back to the drawing board and off their digital devices!
