THE MIND BEHIND OCTOBOX
Octobox is developed by a team led by multi-award winning OT, Jessica Kennedy. Jess is the Senior Paediatric Occupational Therapist of her own private practice whereby she completes her intervention in the child's home environment. As Jess’s waiting list grew, she realised that parents needed an immediate solution to help develop motor skills in a structured and ongoing basis.
The amount of families & school's seeking private OT support is constantly growing and having children on wait-lists is not a solution. Jess wanted to find a way to reach more children & families so that they could be proactive in the home environment.
The goal is to get kids more active, encourage motor skills through activities, coach parents & teachers, support skill development and embrace positive child development. All our resources are designed by Jess who is passionate about creating fun and enjoyable learning opportunities for kids.
The world has enough plastic. You deserve to feel guilt-free about improving your child’s motor skills. That’s why we’re committed to using minimal plastic and reducing excess waste.
Our custom wooden OT Toys in our Whizz Kid Projects are designed and produced right here in Ireland. We do not include items that you likely have in your home or school already - things like tweezers, glue sticks, and sellotape. However, if you DO need these items, we’ll ship them to you. Our commitment to zero waste means we make zero profit on this part of our service.

My 5 year old son gets so much enjoyment from the octobox, sometimes I seem to struggle to find something fun that’s improving motor skills , this is easy to follow step by step , videos are fab , I feel great knowing I am helping while spending time together and having fun , it’s not even a tenner a week great value .
It’s a great box but my little lady has just turned 4 so there were 1 or 2 things that were a little hard for her
This is a great product and really well thought out and the video tutorials are excellent. My son has great fun following along and keeps asking to do more. The gross motor skills videos are great fun.
We're 2 weeks into our Octobox and my 8yr old with Dyspraxia is loving it! So refreshing to have a fun purpose to the many motor skills we practise. Instead of trying to draw on the lines we are helping a seagull to fly through the sky! The videos are so easy to follow and Jess' creativity can make stretches we have done numerous times seem loads more interesting as she takes us on an underwater adventure. Would recommend to anyone
Octobox is a fantastic resource that my son Charlie 7 is enjoying. His favourite is the whizz kid project and all his siblings joined in playing with the rocket launcher. Charlie is improving his fine motor skills through fun activities in the octobox. Charlie loves Jess's gross motor online videos and so do I especially for rainy days. I highly recommend octobox and Jess is a fantastic OT with great enthusiasm and experience.
