Paint Your Own Snowman Fun

paint your own snowman nesting dollWinter is almost here. We had our first proper frost this morning – our car appreciated it so little that it decided not to work without mechanical assistance!

With a bit of a white frosting across the grass we decided it would be a great time to flaunt one of our lovely winter products. Our little paint your own snowman gift set promises to be a good hour or two of winter craft fun. All our nesting doll gifts are very popular and we love this winter version. It comes with it’s own paint brush, paints and goggly eyes. The nesting dolls are all marked up with face, scarf and buttons, all you need to do is add a child with a brush.

Visit our snowman nesting doll gift set page for more information on creating a Christmas decoration that will last for many Christmases to come.

Christmas Comes Early

Christmas came early here at Dylan and Grace last weekend, we dug out the Christmas tree, dusted of the ornaments and did a Christmas gift photoshoot to show off some of our new product and get you all in the mood for the festive season.

Our 6 and 8 year olds had a fabulous day checking out the autumn range, helping to stage the shots and modelling for the photos.  Our new images will be up on the site soon but in the meantime here are the childrens top 3 lines from the day;

  1. Our New Spotty and Pirate Sailing YachtsChild's Pirate Sailing Yacht
    Hours of fun was spent racing these across the village pond and despite a small disaster when one got stuck in some weeds (a big stick and a big child rescued the situation). They were the favourite of the day.
  2. Earthworm Nursery
    Anything that involves mud and insects makes our little boy very happy!
  3. Fairy Princess Cupcake and Cookie Party Set
    Pretty, princesses, pink and involves cake – what’s not to like!

Take a look and let us know which your favourites are, we’d love to hear from you.
