About This Creative Scene

The ‘Dig for Victory’ campaign was set up during WWII by the Government in times of strict rationing. Everyone was encouraged to grow their own food and make the most of green spaces; golf courses, gardens and parks became allotments. Leaflets were sent to every home inspiring people to ‘do their bit’ ensuring everyone had enough to eat and kept in high spirits.

How It Works

After discovering that as people’s dementia progresses they struggle to pick puzzle pieces up and place them in the correct place, which caused frustration. We wanted to design a product with no wrong answer that gives that same sense of achievement.

Creative Scenes enables people to create their own allotment using a set of magnetic pieces. Each magnetic vegetable can be picked up and placed on the background wherever they choose, creating their very own allotment. 

Each Creative Scene has beautifully illustrated content, commissioned to ensure they are reminiscent of the appropriate era so people can relate to them and start conversations. The plastic we use is very durable and easy to clean, meeting infection control standards.
