Amazing press and parent and blogger reviews for our creative colouring toy...

Progressive Preschool

November/December 2017

Carddies just featured in Progressive Preschool Magazine's Nov/Dec issue (p93 and 95) on educational toys and Making Learning Fun! Please see the comments by Raquel, co-creator of Carddies, as to what makes them special (see also her description of our new Carddies My Family colouring in and play set).

SEN Resources Blog

October 2017

 This reviewer thought “The Carddies Packs are fabulous for promoting imaginative play– which is important for helping children make sense of our world...Colouring the characters and back-drop as well as moving the people around all involves the development of fine motor skills which are imperative skills for learning to write, do up buttons, use a knife and fork etc. “

We were invited to write in the ROMPA Winslow Resources blog as to how Carddies came about, as well as on their play and educational value (in particular, in an SEN context). Carddies are available from Winslow Resources.

Another great review, this time of Carddies Sports...

"I knew these would be a hit, both Summer and Jacob enjoyed colouring the bits together, creating their own sports team and standing their players up etc."

Recommended by parents: 5 stars out of 5 for Carddies on Quality of Service, Value for Money, What the Kids Think and What the Adults Think!

 This is what they said:

"All of them have names and are played with most days. We always get a set when we go away. They are coloured in on the aeroplane and played with when we get there."


"It's something that grips their imagination, they adore doing and they keep coming back to over the years."


"They are great to just throw into your bag and pull out when you want to keep the children entertained, a bit like a portable dolls house."
