We believe that children’s amazing invention ideas are a valuable contribution to the world. They shouldn’t just be stuck to a fridge door and forgotten. Children should be encouraged to get thinking, get creating, and get making!

Our aim is to inspire and support children around the world to use their wonderful imaginations to think up ingenious, fantastical, funny, or perfectly practical invention ideas with no limits.
