About Us

ABOUT US

The Timeout Bags concept was formed by mum of two Alix Porter, a former Harvey Nichols Marketing Manager.  Spotting a gap in the market for children's Travel Activity Packs at an affordable price, Alix followed her passion to provide engaging screen free travel activities for children of all ages.   

WHO WE ARE

Timeout Bags are an online retailer, providing traditional activity packs for kids, crammed with books, toys, games, healthy snacks and much more. We provide a bespoke service for busy parents who value traditional parenting methods and screen free time. 

WHAT'S IN A BAG

  • - A 100% cotton eco-friendly drawstring bag.
  • - 3 healthy handpicked travel snacks.
  • - 10 activities, books, toys, crafts, games and puzzles. 

WHAT MAKES US DIFFERENT

Our reusable kids' bags are kind to the environment and are made from recyclable cotton, which is naturally soft and hypoallergenic. We aim to bring you a selection of the latest must-have snacks and products on the market today. Each bag represents fantastic value for money, where combined prices are unachievable independently.  A portion of each bag sold is donated to UK based Charity 'Changing Faces'. In 2019 we gave 10% of our profits to charity - so you can feel good about what you buy.

THE WINNING FORMULA

An expanding range of tried and tested toys and activities designed to entertain children in a fun and educational way. Carefully selected snacks to energise, whilst on the go. Our bags can be used whilst travelling, or simply as a treat on arrival at your destination. The excitement of the bag should not wear off, as your child will want to explore their bag again once they arrive at their destination.  Each bag is hand-picked according to your child's development group.
