The Timeout Toy Box is an interactive parenting and motivational tool. We got to talk with Johanna from Timeout Toy Box about this innovative product at the Chicago Toy and Game Fair (ChiTAG). 

Being a parent will always be a challenge. With the constant presence of electronic and social media, however, today's parents are often navigating an unfamiliar landscape as they seek the best for their children. Time-proven characteristics of discipline, hard work and achievement are overshadowed by instant gratification and perpetual distraction. The challenges of this landscape require creative solutions. The Timeout Toy Box offers such a solution to some of these challenges.

"The concept of the Timeout Toy Box began when we searched for a product that would help teach children responsible use of electronic devices, as well as allowing them to develop discipline and delayed gratification skills. Failing to identify such a teaching aid, we set out to develop one."

The patent pending Timeout Toy Box is an interactive teaching, parenting and motivational tool. It can be used with children of all ages for earning rewards by reaching goals, or to earn back items put in timeout. The Timeout Toy Box sets limits, manages behavior, teaches self-control, discipline and encourages responsibility.
