Our Story

How it all began

Over 14 years ago I started carrying activity packs and crayons to entertain my children. As a parent, I realised that the key to a great family dining experience was keeping my kids busy at the table. I wanted the solution to be creative and educational, but more importantly something that the whole family could get involved in. From this idea, the Orignal Bizzi Bag was born, filled with crayons, puzzles and colouring-in. I started to do business from my kitchen table.


Developing the family-friendly offering

We made a trip to China to source a factory to produce our bags and hired a container on a local farm to stock the products. The storage space, along with the business, grew rapidly as the hospitality industry quickly recognised the value of our family offering. We are constantly researching new ways that children can interact with our products in the most engaging and educational way. Our latest research asks 1,000 parents their views on the current family dining experience. The results really make some interesting reading! You can view the results here.

We are proud to have developed a bespoke range of products with many of our customers. These include crayons for kids, disposable menu mats, colouring-in, branded merchandise, educational materials, partyware and takeaway products.
