World Inventors Day – Little Inventors Handbook

It’s World Inventor’s Day so we’re super excited to be working on such an amazing book and look forward to inspiring the next generation of inventors.  The Little Inventors Handbook is a step-by-step guide on how to get inventing and encourages kids to come up with seriously silly or perfectly practical invention ideas – with no limits! 

Little Inventors Handbook

“This book is great. I need it to invent a way of feeding me raisins throughout the day as I am travelling about on buses and trains. I believe these Little Inventors could do it for me.” – Children’s novelist and poet, Michael Rosen

Last month we were invited along to KidZania London for their KidPreneur Festival.  Attending with both Roo and Tigger, I have to confess to thinking that it would be Roo who gained the most from it.  She has watched the Apprentice and the Junior Apprentice, with the drive to create something of her own one day and make it big just like Lord Sugar.  However, whilst Roo did take away some valid pointers from the day, it was Tigger who had a fire lit under him and he was eager to start creating and inventing.

World Inventors Day

As today is World Inventors Day it seems only right that I should be sharing with you a book that Tigger has been reading through.  The Little Inventors Handbook from Collings.  He has been gaining hints and tips on how to go about making the perfect invention.

From introducing Little Inventors to explaining why ideas are EVERYTHING.  The book is split into bite-size chapters that lead them through the inventing journey.  With practical ideas on thinking about who will utilise their invention, will it be something to help pollution, climate control etc.  At the end of each chapter, they gain a little medal/sticker to encourage them to continue with their invention.

Ideas can be uploaded to littleinventors.org where they will be awarded an extra special certificate (which includes an image of their design).  A fantastic way to encourage youngsters whether they are looking to change the world, or find a way to tidy up after themselves so that they don’t have to do it.

Where can I buy a copy of the Little Inventors Handbook?

The Little Inventors Handbook is available to buy from Amazon and all other leading book retailers, priced at £9.99 it offers amazing value.
