LitJoys is an early learning venture, which connects children to nature and nurtures them to become more aware, considerate, responsible and healthier human beings. The experiential learning products designed by LitJoys help in nurturing the joy of learning and build habits and values in children that make parents lives easier and the world a better place. They also take children away from modern day “toxic childhood”- addiction to screens, plastic toys, junk food and lack of parental involvement. The learning content is designed in a way that parents can also learn something new and experience many little moments of joy (LitJoys), learning and unlearning together with their children.

“It was a pleasure to have you in the school with your team today for a workshop on indoor air pollution. Your team conducted a wonderful session for grade 2 students enriching them with the cause, effect and the ways to prevent indoor air pollution. It was a delight to see our students interacting and participating equally with your team. You took care of each minute detail as per their interest by using the props and storytelling.
We look forward to more of such sessions, with you in the future.”

‘City of Stars’ is a beautiful book by LitJoys. I am impressed how they have tried to cover every topic revolving around sustainability, in one book. My daughter loves the Waste Segregation chapter because we are following the same at home as well. Every time we read she draws the three bins. We take one topic a day from the book. And this came right at the Diwali time being around the corner, this book surely help in starting conversations about noise and pollution free Diwali! Thank you LitJoys for curating this book.

I got Little Collector’s Passport for a Christmas gift for my 4 year old daughter and she loved it. It contains all the essential elements to teach the kids about the places traveled; it has placeholders for nature collectibles, coins and stickers for flags & stamps. The stickers are very attractive for the kiddos. Good kit to carry as you travel to keep kids engaged.
This product is one of the best buys I had for my 3.5 year old. He was so excited to see this, as this a really colorful, and has amazing stamps from all around the world. My son, is able to interact with the places we travel now, right from the flag of the country, what did we see, what were the main areas, culture, food etc. The product is well made and quality is great and has become my son’s constant companion, so much so, I had to buy one for my daughter, who is 8 and now I think, i’ll buy more for gifting my friend’s kids. A must buy for any parent who wants their kids to have a deeper experience of the travel that they do and help parents to show the world in a more structured manner.
I have spent the last few days fruitfully creating ‘My Gulmohar Tree’ with my almost 4 year old and the process has been delightful and surprising at the same time. The product uses the art of storytelling to educate us about the beautiful Gulmohar Tree and in process introduces children to concepts like how plants are nurtured, how they sustain us by providing food, things we use daily, the role seasons play in a plant’s life and the fauna which lives on the trees etc. All of this is done in such a simple way, that not only did my toddler understand it almost immediately, it also piqued her curiosity and encouraged her to be a bit more aware and curious about nature. All these concepts got revisited through a book which we co-created using simple craft activities. The cherry on the cake is the fact that all craft items are made of recyclable material. Park times have now become about collecting leaves and flowers, finding which plant flowers when and keeping track of all things which the plants give us. Its heartening to see this love for nature which The Gulmohar Tree has helped grow.
My Gulmohar Tree’ And I can easily sum it up in 2 simple words ‘Pure Joy’. The concept is brilliant & very unique. It all begins with a very interesting story book that teaches not just about the Gulmohar Tree but also touches upon emotions such as nurturing & appreciating the glory of nature. My 4 year old loved the visuals & also learnt about continents & seasons. Such is the expanse of the book.
Once you’ve completed reading the book, the DIY kit is literally nothing like what I’ve seen before. Most of the elements are derived from Nature & very easy to use. My son enjoyed pasting with lentils and saw dust to make words & stamping to create a tree. A lot of the activities can be actually done outdoors, in a park. How cool is that? I also realised that the elements of the kit, promote tactile and sensory engagement even outside the parameters of the kit. Such an excellent idea to keep kids busy on a cold winter day, or even otherwise, to just keep their mind away from the maddening gadgets. Highly recommended by a very happy mom.
We just finished making our own Travel Diary on Mexico by LitJoys, which was much more than just a crafting book. It gave us a chance to tell and weave a travel story along with our child. The package provided all details, stickers, and applique materials to explain the culture of this country, their national monuments, animals, and flowers. The story is simplified for young kids and it is really up to parents on how much educational information to share with their kids.
My baby Shannon is youngest of the LitJoys customers, she is only 22 months old, and could handle the craft work only with my help and supervision, but she really enjoyed handling tiniest pieces (e.g., using red bindi dots (also provided in the package) to trace the title of the book and page numbers – so great for fine motor skills. Thank you LitJoys for a wonderful and fun activity, we really enjoyed with our baby Shannon.
