We will start with Introducing you to our “Hooky Loopy” Range for Children.

Lets introduce you firstly to our Unique special custom made …

“Hooky Loopy” Laptop tray. 

This Laptop tray is covered with VELCRO receptive material which will take the sticky back hook VELCRO tape making the laptop suitable for holding down objects. This provides a surface in which things can be made secure to stop them falling onto the floor.  It is suited as an Educational aid to assist children in the learning of their ABC, reading, learning colours and in the teaching of Mathematics. 

Having the tray tactile – makes learning fun.  It is great for attaching ‘hooked’ down yet removable objects aiding children in mathematics like adding, subtracting and multiplication without the child even realizing it. This Laptop tray can be attached to wheel chairs so as to form a secure tray for children with special needs .

Being able to secure objects with hook only tape on to the laptop tray makes it very versatile and able to be used for many different purposes. 

Children can also use building blocks with the hook side stuck on to them to create artistic displays or their own creations + models helping to stimulate childrens creativity.   You will find an example of this here
