You may be thinking your playground is too small for fifteen Nivsta Boards, Nivsta Boards offers thirty, $1,500, twenty $1,000 and ten $500, groups of children per Van Franchise time.



Part of 30 children Van Franchise time.

Coming soon at the end of the Programme dip the ball in paint, throw it at the Board. Each child has a turn. The Board is wooden, it gets a tennis ball paint job by the children.

Part of the cost for the Van Franchise is this unique idea, all fun and the wooden Nivsta Board is free inclusive of the Programme cost for the School.

How cool, every child that participates in a 30 children Van Franchise Programme gets a Nivsta scratchie. If he or she scratches a Mr Nivsta Mascot, he or she wins a free Nivsta Board. One in thirty, winner. 

Reference Quotes.

London, England, Mrs D L Campbell, Head Teacher.
