About this project
Sean in a Box™
"The - ALL IN ONE - Intelligence & Entertainment System for your Child"
(Utility & Design Patents Pending)
Please note that this project is for our 5 year old son "Sean", whom we teach now his first steps of how to become a successful entrepreneur! Please support this aspiring business man. Thank you!
Imagine if your young child would be able to read and write the ABC, count until 100, does mathematics, knows how to count money, knows all shapes, colors and countries of the world at 2 or 3 years old before even entering kindergarten... Impossible?
Inspired by children for children. Created by parents for parents!
Sean in a Box™ has been inspired by our own son, "SEAN" whom we started teaching at the early age of 1 and 1/2 years all important aspects for intelligent child development.
HOW IT ALL STARTED?
We used picture cards and wall posters as well as other "self written" phrases to teach our son his first words, counting, calendars, world maps, globes, etc etc. However, the childrens room became rather "cluttered" by having all these ABC wall posters, numbers and other items sticking across the wall..... There must be a better way?
One day the famous "light bulb" went on and we realized that the clutter in every childs room can be eliminated, by creating a very COMPACT "Toy Box & Intelligence System" at the same time.
Sean in a Box™ helps to make everyday life a little easier and a lot more organized. Sizes of Sean in a Box™ Cubes are 100% flexible and can be from small, medium, large to extra large.
Sean in a Box™ is a "All-in-one" solution:
1.) No more poster across the bedroom walls
2.) No more toys all over the floor
3.) Clean and compact toy storage system
4.) Early Learning Intelligence System from 1 to 6 years old
5.) 14 DVD's included for enhanced learning for infants and toddlers
As we all know, there are plenty of "toy storage boxes" in the market place (we purchased at least 6 of them) and many flash cards, ABC wall posters, educational maps, globe's etc. etc. which help parents to teach their children their first words, and other important things of life.... However all these items have their "limitations" and when parents purchase all these toys and learning tools together, they cost more than $250 bucks...! Trust us, we spent even more than that...
THERE MUST BE A BETTER & MORE COST EFFECTIVE SOLUTION?
- What if we could create a "TOY BOX" which is at the same time an educational early learning and intelligence system for every child?
- What if we could entertain and educate a child for hours and hours with the same "toy"?
- What if we add educational DVD's into this package to further support the messages on the "Sean in a Box Cube"?
- What if it would cost far less than buying all these items separately, which would help parents to save money?
- What if we would use as 'THE BOX' an existing product in the market place, which has been produced MILLIONS OF TIMES and slightly "modify" it for our new purpose?
- Would this enable us to save on manufacturing cost? Of course, all molds are already in place!
- Would there be a market for the Sean in a Box Cube?
- How would children react to it?
- How would parent react when seeing it?
- What if it could be sold for less than $30 bucks...?
To get the answers to all these questions, we created our first "dummy prototype" and tested it on our son Sean.
Obviously, these where not the "most perfect" designs but it gave us a good "starting point" to further enhance our idea. The most important aspect we discovered was that we have been able to keep Sean entertained with a simple "carton box" for about 3 hours per learning session... It reminded us on the Credit Card commercial where the child plays with the "box" instead of the present in it... PRICELESS!
The next Sean in a Box™ Prototype:
So we hired a AutoCad and a Graphic Designer and came up with more ideas to make Sean in a Box™a really "multi-functional" entertainment and intelligence system and kept on adding 14 different themes as you can see on the images below.
COST SAVINGS IN THE MANUFACTURING PROCESS:
What is a great benefit for cost effective production and manufacturing, is the fact that ANY existing plastic storage box in the market place only needs to be slightly "modified" to create the Sean in a Box™ Intelligence System.
What originally started as 4 different sides on a box plus 4 sides on a lid, turned out to be a 14 sides project with an incredible amount of information, knowledge and pure fun to entertain and educate any young child.
This August, Sean is turning 6 years old, ready to go into first grade. He is the youngest in his class and he has received during pre-school and kindergarten the highest achievements of 100% of every exam taken.
In his school, Sean has been placed into an ADVANCED learning group with only 3 other children due to his ability to read and write, doing complicated mathematics additions on 4 levels such as:
"How much is 8 + 9 + 4 + 3"? without using any visual support or without writing anything down on paper!
Based on our teaching experience with Sean, we are CONFIDENT that "Sean in a Box" is a perfect multi-functional, early stage educational learning and entertainment system, every young child and its parents will fall in love with.
Here are the Sean in a Box™ AutoCad & 3D Designs
SO HOW DOES IT WORK?
"Sean in a Box" is a portable child education system and entertainment center, toy storage box and children push cart for early language skill developments and fun play time.
Infants and toddlers are introduced to learning through musical sounds and visual stimulation via a series of 14 DVD's related to different fields of experience. A learning center and portable toy box includes a square or rectangle moveable box to display up to 14 learning elements.
Turning the box enables the parents to teach the young child important elements of daily lives. The child will learn 14 topics, which illustrates learning indicia such as letters or numbers, with child/toy interaction giving rise to stimulus related primarily to the concepts to be learned.
In a second mode, the Sean in a Box Early Learning System illustrates DVD interaction giving the child phonetic stimulus related primarily to the topics mentioned on the toy box.
Sean in a Box includes a series of 14 DVD's to support parents with their early learning activities with their children.
The 14 learning elements of the Sean in a Box "Intelligence Cube" and the 14 DVD's include the following topics:
1.I love my ABC
2.I love School – Number’s from 1 to 100
3.I love to have a great time – Learning how to read a clock
4.I love my colors and shapes
5.I can count money
6.Countries of the world
7.I love to write on my calendar – A Magnetic Drawing Board
8.Our Solar System
9.My Beach Home – Learning items around the house
10.Let’s explore our amazing body
12.I like to eat Fruits
14.My Family Tree - A Magnetic Board to insert Photos of the child’s family members
The Sean in a Box Early Learning System & Entertainment Center functions as a COMPACT portable box design, which not only functions as early learning system but also as a toy storage box and as a children’s push cart, which can be used indoors and outdoors by parents. The sturdy wheels and a built in seating area allows the parent to push their infants and toddlers around either inside or outside the house for additional fun.
The 14 DVD’s who are included in the box provide the child with phonetic learning in addition to visualization of the box elements. Starting to teach children to learn how to read and count numbers is a major key to their success when entering kindergarten or school. It helps the child to develop better self-esteem, comprehension and phonetic awareness.
Parents are their children’s first teachers, which enables them to benefit from the most natural window of language development, which is between 3 months and 5 years.
The Sean in a Box Early Learning System teaches children to see and hear the words, along with the meaning of the words. It teaches children about objects, actions, words, body parts, family members, our solar system, the countries of the world and may other important features for infant and toddler early intelligence development.
The Sean in a Box Early Learning System entertains children for hours each day, teaches them how to read and write and stores children toys all neatly in one place. It provides parents with effective tools to help nurture their child’s intelligence development.
Major university studies indicate that the best time for learning is during the first five years of a child’s life. Parents can make an incredible difference in their children’s life by enabling them to learn important skills before they even enter kindergarten or pre-school. The Sean in a Box Early Learning System is helping to create smarter and more intelligent children who will be able to receive better grades when they enter the school system.
We Need Your Help!
We are committed to being part of the solution—not part of the problem!
We need to spread the word about our "Sean in a Box" early learning system and the benefits it offers to young children and parents alike!
Hiring a manufacturing firm and start nationwide distribution costs money — A LOT OF MONEY!
But we think our Sean in a Box™ Intelligence System has revolutionary methods that will “inspire the Genius” in all children for a long-lasting impact. We believe that by educating young children as early as possible, we can create very smart adults who will excel in their daily lives and careers, maximizing their full range of options.
That's why we need Kickstarter - it's one of the only places where you, the customer, can help bring out-of-the-box GeniusIdeas™ to life.
Your backing will help us to bring the Sean in a Box™ Intelligence System into nationwide distribution channels so every child can enjoy and learn at the same time.
Sean in a Box™ helps to make everyday life a little easier and a lot more organized and creates hundreds of NEW JOBS FOR AMERICA!
Risks and challenges
We have selected the WORLD'S LARGEST manufacturer of plastic storage boxes as our contract manufacturing partners. For 75 years, Sterilite products (www.sterilite.com) have helped make everyday life a little easier and a lot more organized. As the world's largest independent manufacturer of plastic housewares. Sterilite's broad line features some of the most innovative and distinctive products available on the market today. From food storage containers and laundry / utility products to home storage and organization products in every shape, size and color; Sterilite helps you "keep it together" like no other. Even though we have a close dialog with our suppliers, we are not in control of their actions. However, Sterilite is a USA based corporation and deliver's to companies such as Wal-Mart, Home Depot and Lowes, so we know their credibility and reliabilty is second to none. Every design component is highly integrated into and optimized within the overall Sean in a Box™ designs, and an unforeseen component alteration could delay our launch.
The team has a very strong background in design for manufacturing. We have manufacturing flow, testing procedures and sourcing of parts well defined. Even if we encounter high demand, we will be able to scale production and logistics accordingly.
We believe that we will start shipping Sean in a Box™ Cube's to our supporters in November 2014.
We are really excited and confident that our Sean in a Box™ project will become a major success. We have lined up the best manufacturing firm in the USA and a distribution firm to help us bring the Sean in a Box™ Cube into major retail stores across the country. Also, we've chosen fulfillment deadlines based on reasonable expectations of how things will go, but if it takes longer, we'll let everyone know and double-down on getting it done.
The difficulties in producing a physical product are well-known to us and we're prepared for them. We feel confident that with your help, this is a SUCCESS STORY we can Make Happen!
Don't we all want our children to be the smartest in school?
If you are a parent, you know how proud you are when your child comes home with excellent grades!
Sean in a Box™ has been created to support child intelligence development for children across the nation and help parents to make everyday life a little easier and a lot more organized. In addition, we are excited to be able to create new jobs for America.
