Raquel and Esther’s children love to colour. One rainy seaside holiday Raquel started drawing figures on the backs of cereal packets for her children to play with and Carddies were born…….
We’re a huge fan of Carddies in this household and so I had to let you all know about their latest sets! Farm & Nativity!
The theme of Nativity is well-suited to the Christmas period and the addition of Carddies Farm ensures the range appeals to younger children. Each set contains 12 double-sided, hand-drawn characters made of card with stands, 12 colouring pencils and a hand-drawn card scene as a backdrop; all packaged in a sturdy box so they can be “taken with you wherever you go”. Now not only do you have these two fantastic themes they provide 10 more!
Each set is tailor-made for boys and girls aged between 4 and 10: Ballet, Cavemen, Fairies, Football, Knights, Family One & Two, School, London, Sports and now Nativity and Farm. These make excellent gifts for your kids, birthdays, Christmas and they are perfect for taking in your bag or in the car while you’re out and about. A mum recommend to me as using them when they went out to a restaurant and boy are they fantastic for this. I think they were more carried away with the colouring in and playing that they were disappointed when the food finally arrived!
They are well-priced gifts for children and make perfect stocking fillers. £8.99 from http://www.carddies.com/ Carddies are available from the Carddies store at www.amazon.co.uk and from the other stockists listed at www.carddies.com
