We were recently sent Carddies Sports to review.
Carddies is an award winning little art box with a theme, encouraging creativity, pretend play, imagination and story-telling.. Designed and hand drawn by two mothers who began creating them one dull, rainy day for their bored children. Carddies sets contain hand drawn, card people which can be coloured in and played with.
The box includes: 12 hand-drawn sporty looking characters on thick white card (You give each character a name)- and you colour them in on both the front and back. Also included is a hand-drawn sporty cardboard background scene, an array of coloured pencils to bring your Carddies and background card to life, 12 plastic stands to stand your characters in.
It starts off as being colouring fun but soon turns into a competitive scene where sports people play games - like football or rugby - the set allows the kids to use their imagination and continue the fun - and once finished playing with them, they pop them back into the box.
I knew these would be a hit, both Summer and Jacob enjoyed colouring the bits together, creating their own sports team and standing their players up etc.
The set is a portable size, perfect to take along to a restaurant to keep the kids busy, or on a car journey etc. RRP is £8.99 per set. I have a discount code available for my readers - please see below.
Great quality - hard durable card, with nice size colouring pencils, perfect for little hands.
On the back of the scene card is an index for each character where you can name each one.
We named each character.
Both Summer and Jacob coloured in the characters - front and back. Each character played an individual sport, from swimming, to rowing, to football.
