I was recently sent a wonderful package of arts and crafts products from Printkick to review. Of course I enabled some help from my Little Peter Pan who was delighted to assist and work on some arts and crafts during the summer holidays. Today I am going to talk a little about Printkick, what we were sent to review, and what we thought about each product.
Printkick are a small family business that started up in 2001, but have roots that date back to 1987. They primarily sell ceramics such as printed mugs to small businesses around the UK. With the launch of their new website, they have expanded their range to include kids arts and crafts products, which I’ll be reviewing today. Printkick have launched a new eco-friendly products range, which they are trying to grow to ensure that organisations are aware of their environmental impact and make better choices with their printed items. Their latest campaign with ADHD Foundation for neurodiversity won a lot of positive PR and accolades. You can read more here.
The glasses looked very appealing to children in the package, and had a great design. They were sturdy and big enough to be decorated, but not too big so that they would slide down his nose. The coloured pens that came with the glasses were great and enabled Quinn to create his own unique design. The glasses would appeal to a wide age range of children, and would be a perfect activity to bring whilst travelling on holiday. We thoroughly enjoyed this activity and Quinn said that on a scale from one to ten, he would give the product a ten for the fun he had.
The next product Quinn chose was the Colouring Magnetic Stickers, which came with four coloured pens.
I really liked the look of these as although they were magnets, they weren’t too heavy but the side that could be coloured felt like a paper but was much more durable. Although the stickers came with five colouring pens, it felt enough and the colours seemed appropriate for the circus theme. It took Quinn a while to perfect his colouring, so it was a perfect rainy day activity. Once the stickers were coloured, they were easily popped away from the page, leaving an adorable magnet to be proudly displayed on the fridge.
Next up was the Backpack With 5 Markers.
Although the design and size of the bag was marketed toward younger children, Quinn really enjoyed making his own mark. I mean who wouldn’t want to let their imagination run wild and colour a backpack! When I first felt the backpack, I didn’t know how well the pen was going to stay on. It in fact dried in quite fast and despite a few smudge marks he made whilst colouring, it looked really nice! This would be another great activity to take on holiday, and it would be perfect for passing the time on a long haul flight.
The one product that was sent for me, and I was very excited to try out was the Adult Drawing book.
I got sick so the book was a perfect distraction, and a great time to try my first colouring book since I was around Quinn’s age! The cute little set came with an intricate plant themed colouring book and twelve coloured pencils in a foldable holder, perfect for carrying around in your bag. I must say I found the colouring so relaxing and therapeutic and before I knew it, I had spent some time perfecting my work!
Last but certainly not least, Quinn opened up his own Colouring Set with Notepad.
The children’s set came with the coloured pencils just like the adults version and a variety of designs to colour, with some blank pages toward the back of the notebook for doodling. Quinn could have spent hours neatly colouring the pages and it was lovely to see him so relaxed whilst taking time out of the sunshine we have been fortunate to have this summer.
Thanks so much to Printkick for these wonderful products, we had so much creative fun! Which was your favourite arts and crafts? Id love to hear from you!
