Our review: A brilliantly funny story about a neurotic squirrel that thinks someone is stealing his leaves. A patient bird friend tries to help him understand that the leaf thief is the wind and that this is all totally normal. I was very pleasantly surprised to find a page of factual information at the end, all about autumn. My favourite books are stories that incorporate a tiny smidgeon of education.

Inquisitarium was founded on the belief that children learn through play and that toys and books have the power to spark wonder and cultivate a curious personality. We love sourcing the best toys that provide a sensory experience or teach the child something valuable. We are also completely addicted to children's books; our favourites are the beautifully illustrated ones with factual details seamlessly woven into a good bedtime story.

The name 'inquisitarium' aims to create a feeling of place for the sense of being inquisitive, curious and questioning about the universe. It also sounds like a terrarium, which fits wonderfully with our efforts to be green.

We are constantly learning about what it is to have an eco-friendly and sustainable business, and subsequently adapting our business processes and approach to product design and packaging to limit our environmental impact.
