This end of winter, early springtime stage really is magic isn't it? The lighter evenings, the feeling the warmth in the sun, those first mornings out in the garden and afternoons at the park, spotting bulbs and blossoms as they start to appear. Aside from Christmas, this is my favourite time of the year which you can probably see in my shop as I tend to go all out for our Spring/Easter launch and 2023 is no exception. There will be annual favourites that I'm bringing back for their 4th year running, a golden oldie making its comeback and a whole heap of newness too. I've been working on this collection for months and I'm so excited to finally be able to show it to you...
This year there will be a whopping 3 different play kits to choose from; last year's sell out Vegetable Garden Play Kit, a stunning Spring Garden Play Kit and the brand new Spring Meadow Play Kit.
The Peter Rabbit inspired Vegetable Garden Play Kit made its first debut in Spring 2020 and every year it has been hugely popular, selling out time and time again. And it's easy to see why! This set is jam packed full of carefully thought out components for hours of imaginary play plus heaps of learning potential too. This year it is returning once more but in very limited quantities so make sure you're quick if you want to grab one.
I am so thrilled that Tevi Toys are back in action after taking a brief hiatus to build themselves a house and workshop down in Cornwall so that we can use their stunning wooden animal figures in our sets once more. Beautiful, beech bunny rabbits will feature in our Spring Garden Play Kit. This play kit is completely plastic free and only includes larger tools and components making it perfect for children who still like to mouth everything or have fine motor difficulties.
And last, but by no means least, the brand new Spring Meadow Play Kit. I cannot tell you how much I enjoyed designing this set for you all! The beautiful colours, the sweet pear and cherry scented play doughs the huge selection of plastic free loose parts and that cuter than cute baby lamb figure. To me this just screams springtime and I can't wait to see your little ones creating their own unique small world meadow scenes.
Mini kits come in their own organic cotton, drawstring bags and are perfect for play on the go, a unique gift or a lovely addition to an Easter basket. This year I have created two new mini kits, the Bunny Mini Kit and the Chick Mini Kit. Children can use the play dough and the components included to make their own favourite Easter characters.
It is always equal parts nerve wracking and exciting when I launch new products, especially when it's something I've been thinking about for such along time. This Spring, I'm so pleased to show you our new Sensory Dough Surprises. Each set comes in its own kraft gift box and contains three 130g tins of scented pastel play dough. Children will be delighted to find a small, resin figure hiding within each tin of dough when they open it up. Think of them as a sugar free alternative to a well known toy-filled chocolate egg!
We have two different themes available, one containing a bunny, carrot and a toadstool and the other a hen, a chick and an egg.
Pastel Play Dough Tins (£7.50)
Every year you go crazy for this pastel rainbow of play dough so I couldn't not bring it back! A collection of eight gorgeous, soft, pastel shades, each with its very own unique scent. From white chocolate to raspberry, lemon sherbet to apricot, they're almost good enough to eat (but of course, please don’t)!
And then to go with your play dough and play kits, we of course have a gorgeous selection of tools and accessories including a set of 5 spring themed play dough cutters (£6), Easter themed play dough mats (£5) and a huge range of rollers and sensory stones from Yellow Door.
Our Spring collection will be available to buy on the website from March 1st!
