It was a simple scene back in 1985; a chat with a teacher in a local school. The conversation around the lack of quality D&T resources for the classroom. One industrious evening in a garage later and the first TTS resource was born. The very next day the teacher was given the prototype. “Wow,” they said, “this is exactly what I said I needed”.
From the conversations, the design realisation, the prototype, the consultation, the manufacture, the delivery, the reaction and most importantly the benefit to children’s education, our cycle of development hasn’t really changed, even if life in a school has.
With your help we have created thousands of reasons to love learning and each year around 400 new resources are invented. From printed books to programmable floor robots, we keep on inventing because you tell us to, and because everyone loves a “wow”.
A team of brilliant individuals is dedicated to ensuring all 17,000 of our resources satisfy every piece of relevant EU safety legislation.
They check each item is of the highest quality to withstand your bustling learning environments. You know you can get everything you need from us, with our promise to help keep your children safe.
A culture of ideas
Like young children, there are no limits to our imagination. We are fortunate to meet many inspiring and creative people through our travels and it is their inspiration, expertise, ideas, support and encouragement (along with the children who are our chief testers!) that have enabled us to develop a culture of ideas that never stands still.
If you have a brilliant idea that you would like to share with us please get in touch – together we can continue to encourage and inspire the next generation of learners.
