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

Creative Crafting

August 2013

Joe (aged 5) and Zac (aged 11) reviewed the Carddies on behalf of Creative Crafting (and gave them the "Big thumbs up").

"Joe was very excited when he opened the box to see all of the little compartments inside. He soon set to work
colouring in one of the little characters. The first thing he noticed was the quality of the pencils. He said they were
the best that he had used and they stayed sharp very well. The colours also came out nice and bright.

Zac also liked the pencils but his favourite bit about carddies was the idea. He said that the best thing for him was
being able to create the characters and give them names so that he could create stories with them."

First News

The younger members of the Carddies team wrote a lovely piece for First News ( the UK national newspaper for children aged 7-14).

"It all started on a rainy seaside holiday in Devon… our Mum started drawing us cardboard people from the backs of cereal packets.  We would colour them in, and then play with them for hours, inventing little stories in our heads. Back then we did not imagine that they would end up as a proper toy. "
