Our Story – My Messy Box

Our Story


Our Story

Messy Box was founded in 2013 by Jeff Lim, father to 2 adorable young children. When his son was 2, Jeff noticed that he lacked focus during activities, and also had problems gripping small objects. It discouraged him from exploring and learning to his full potential. Like all fathers, he wanted the best for his son. So after trying all possible solutions and seeing no results, Jeff decided to take matters into his own hands by coming up with Messy Box


First of all, he identified key educational/development qualities Messy Box will feature:

  1. Accelerate Your Child’s Cognitive Development
  2. Customized To Fit Local Education Curriculum
  3. Designed By Early Childhood Certified Teachers
  4. Gain A Headstart Over Other Children
  5. Enhance Coordination, Knowledge And Problem-Solving Skills

Next, he enlisted the help of reputable early childhood certified teachers to bring his ideas to life. Through a series of extensive research, development and testing, Messy Box was born! Thanks to Messy Box, Jeff’s son became more focused and benefited greatly in his learning journey. This improvement allowed him to fulfil his potential, and he even managed to qualify for Mensa along with his sister! Fuelled by the success he enjoyed with his children, Messy Box has since helped hundreds of children accelerate their progression and mental growth. Jeff’s goal is to introduce the wonders of Messy Box to as many children as possible, so more can benefit from the wonders of messy-sensory play.
