While both the Firefly Playpak and the Leckey Early Activity System are designed for early childhood development, they cater to different needs and stages. The Firefly Playpak is more versatile in its age range, as it's suitable for children up to 4 years old - although suitability is also dependent on level of physical development - and focuses on a wider variety of motor skills and postures. On the other hand, the Leckey Early Activity System is specifically tailored for infants up to 3 years, emphasising comfortable support and engagement in the earliest stages of development. Choosing the right tool depends on the specific needs and age of your child or the children you are working with. Both products offer unique benefits and are designed to support and empower children on their developmental journey.

Both the Firefly Playpak and the Leckey Early Activity System are designed with aesthetics in mind, ensuring they don't resemble typical clinical therapy equipment. This thoughtful design means they seamlessly blend into everyday environments, avoiding any unwanted attention or sideways glances.

As a parent or clinical assessor, you play a pivotal role in a child's development and these products are there to support you in creating an environment where your child can thrive.
