Little Inventors Open Challenge!

UK June 2016 - December 2041

Little Inventors takes children's invention ideas seriously!

You can find the Open Challenge resources here.

What is the Open Challenge you ask? Well, it's what it says on the tin, it's wide open for you to let your creativity flow and invent whatever you want! Yes, anything you can think of. How about a super scooter that the whole family can ride on? Or a device that stops your feet getting all sweaty (and stinky!)?

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.

Upload your invention idea to show the whole world! Not only are invention ideas featured on our Ideas page, but we provide personalised feedback for each one too.

Inspiration can strike at any time or it might take a bit longer for the ideas to start flowing. You can find inspiration anywhere! You can look to great inventors of the past, think up solutions for the little problems in everyday life, or even go for a walk outside and take in the world around you.

Check out our founder Dominic Wilcox discuss his creative process, it just might kickstart some ideas for you too. Now, what are you waiting for? Get inventing!
