We do love our arts and crafts at Dizzy Toys. We source products from a range of suppliers, from your basic kinder scissors to very detailed and elaborate craft sets aimed at the teenage (and sometimes adult) market. Here are a few worth mentioning:
We are proud stockists of Micador art products and craft kits. who we source most of our basic art products, such as colouring pencils, glue sticks, scissors, art smocks, paint, and crayons, as well as some lovely small craft kits. The early stART range of art supplies is targeted at children aged 1-4, and is made from safe, non-toxic materials and colours. This range then steps up to Micador Jnr which caters for our kinder and school aged children. Micador is an Australian owned third generation family business with origins in Australia dating back to 1952. It is a great story, and can be found on their website.
One of my personal favourites is the Djeco brand. Djeco is a French based company, and the European influence is evident in their graphics and design. With items starting as low as a few dollars, there is something for everyone. From art supplies such as felt tip pens and watercolour pencils, to beautiful kits across many mediums such as sand art, painting, stamping, origami, felt tip colouring and scratch art. I am certainly a big fan of the Djeco products.
The 4M range of craft kits continues to remain fresh and modern, with many traditional themed craft kits with fairies, unicorns, princesses and dinosaurs, alongside some savvy new ideas such as Make your own Woven Watch or Candle making. These kits come with everything you need to get started and finished, and are perfectly priced for birthday party presents. Gotta love 4M.
