The Big Idea Competition 2020

Have your say in a new Busy B product

Bring us your big ideas and we'll make them happen. Let’s do this…

It’s back, after the massive success of our last competition we are delighted to announce the launch of our next BIG Idea competition.

The Big Idea Initiative

Here at Busy B we've built our business on creative problem solving, and we're continually on the lookout for oh-so-clever ideas to turn into innovative new products, or smart little improvements to add to our existing ones.

We also know that great ideas can come from anywhere, because our lovely customers often get in touch with us to share their 'organising frustrations' and homemade solutions in the hope that we'll turn it into a real product.

 That's why we created The BIG Idea, where you can tell us your great ideas – and where the best ones get transformed into innovative products. Sounds exciting, right? And what makes The BIG Idea even better is that as well as your brainwave shaping a beautiful Busy B item, we're also offering prizes for those genius ideas that make it into our products.

 So what do you have to do? Well, simply fill out the form at the bottom of this pageand tell us about:


• those day-to-day organizing frustrations you'd love us to solve

• your brilliant homemade organizing solutions

• anything else that's really clever and you think we should know about it


You can post your ideas as sketches, photos, web links or words in the form below and we’ll be in touch with you if there is anything else you might like to send us to support your entry. And while they need to be ideas that we can turn into stationery or accessories, it can be anything from how you are currently finding solutions to working from home and staying on top of daily tasks to how you are planning your meals and keeping everyone motivated.

Closing date for the competition is May 31st with the winner being selected by the Busy B team for the idea with the most potential to turn into a real product in the range. We look forward to seeing your brilliant suggestions – and if your idea is a winner, we will be in touch with your goodies!

Previous Clever Ideas

  • Counter Top Chaos Image

    Counter Top Chaos

    Sally, Mum of twins, Dorset

    "Our kitchen counters are always covered in paperwork and it's always getting in the way when I'm cooking! I love this home-made idea of using see-through plastic pockets on the inside of cupboard doors to keep the papers hidden but not out of mind - simple and clever - a genius idea!"

  • Holiday Planning Image

    Holiday Planning

    Julie, Mum of two, Edinburgh

    "I always find there is not enough room in my diary to plan the school holidays, I need extra space and a planner I can share with my husband. I like to scribble down ideas for days out too - I draw out a timetable but Busy B could make such a nice version, I'd definitely buy it."

  • 'School to Home' Organiser Box Image

    'School to Home' Organiser Box

    Kathy, Mum of two, Suffolk

    "I could never find letters from the school or even if I did, I couldn't find my chequebook so I made a school to home organiser box. It has all sorts of handy things in it such as stamps, spare change and a year calendar so I know when the school holidays are."
