I'm Ashley, a certified Prediatric Occupational Therapist (MS, OTR/L) with two kids of my own. My clinical experience interacting with kids for over a decade has given me insight on how to engage children in meaningful play.
I have found a true passion for creating educational toys that are fun while building on key developemental skills for parents and kids everywhere!
We chose the name Button and Bug after our daughters nicknames, Peanut Button and Love Bug. Being home with them during a pandemic, I realized just how hard it can be to find engaging activities. This is what led us to start looking for ideas. We got our Flisat table, and the Occupational Therapist in me realized that many of the activities I was doing in the clinic could be done using our table if I were to create custom inserts.
The rest, as they say, is history!
