Learning through play
Hello! We are Little Profs, designers and creators of unique and captivating educational games. Featuring beautiful, vibrant illustrations, with an added sense of humour and mischief, our games are designed to engage adults and children alike. We believe children learn best when they’re having fun.
Little Profs began in 2019 when mother and son duo Roz and James Bennett combined Roz’s 20 years teaching experience in maths and science with James’s knowledge in graphic and product design. During her teaching career, Roz built an enviable reputation for developing fun games and activities to engage her pupils, and upon retiring from teaching decided to turn this passion into a business… Little Profs was born!
We strongly believe play is one of the most effective ways for children to learn. Games can help to build brain pathways for thinking, creativity, flexibility and competence, laying solid foundations for important lifelong skills. Well-designed educational games can give children a head start, nurturing values such as language development, number sense, problem solving and logical thinking. A sense of achievement helps to build confidence and self-esteem, leading to better grades at school.
In the digital age there’s something to be said for sitting down with the family creating fond memories playing games!
We hope you like playing our games as much as we enjoy creating them!
Each game starts with an initial concept and many prototypes which evolve with the help of our dedicated team of young testers until we finally get the thumbs up.
We work from our converted barn in Devon’s Exe valley, where all our games are designed and developed. We use the latest printing technology to ensure they are vibrant and durable. Both the game cards and boxes feature a water resistant coating to help ensure fun for years to come.
Working sustainably is top of our list, it’s in everything we do with all our products made right here in the UK. Our games and flash cards are printed on FSC cardstock using vegetable based inks, with a printing press powered by solar panels.
We enjoy the whole creative process and want you to have fun playing our games.
