What are DoUp4Ways cushions?

The interactive cushions allow you to improve your child’s development while having fun family bonding time. One side of the cushion is interactive and fun, but as the other side is plain, the cushion will also not look out of place with the home décor. If you have two children of a similar age you can even play a game to see who completes doing everything up first.

Why are motor skills important?

  • Fine motor skills are essential for performing everyday skills like cutting, self care tasks (e.g. managing clothing fastenings, opening lunch boxes, cleaning teeth) and pencil skills.
  • The ability to complete these every day tasks can significantly improve the self esteem and academic performance of children

Design from first-hand experience!
kids playing with doup4ways interractive cushion

While taking my 6-year-old son Kyle to school, I noticed a boy of a similar age to my son playing in the school playground with his friends-and. His shoelace had come undone. Once he realised the little boy stopped playing and looked around for a teacher to tie his laces. Later that day, when I got home as I sat on the sofa playing with my three-year-old with a cushion, I realised that on the sofa was all I needed to teach my son to tie his laces.

What happened behind the scenes…

Family bonding motor skills interactive cushion

The cushion we played with had tassels hanging from it, so I began a game showing my son how to tie his laces. After a few days, I would walk into the room and see my son on the sofa watching the TV. Still, I noticed that he also had the cushion in his hand trying to tie the tassels together. 

This episode put me on the road to thinking about using a simple sofa cushion that would not look out of place on the sofa to develop other motor skills. Thinking about what children tend to struggle with when getting dressed, I decided to incorporate laces, zips, buttons, and fasteners to the cushion. These additions to the theme of helping children and even adults develop their fine motor skills.

Some of our appraisals…

From our supper happy parents!

Great everyday use!
This is a brilliant concept that helps children develop their motor skills in a safe and easy way. I think the design allows clear manoeuvring of the different elements to inform life skills at a young age. I like it’s bright and colourful appearance which will clearly appeal to children.
The quality of the cushions is excellent as to is the durability which will clearly withstand toddlers’ “handling”.
I would thoroughly recommend this product for either the home or an educational environment.
Great buy!
I bought this product for my godchildren with in a week their mum was calling to say that how easy it was to teach them to tie up their shoe lace from the comfort of the sofa while watching their favourite TV show. Great buy!
