We were asked if we wanted to try them out and after a quick look on their site, the answer was easy!
There were lots of lovely sets to choose from, but what with Christmas around the corner we chose the Nativity set.
The was much excitement in the house when it arrived.
My son couldn’t wait to get into to the box and find out what was inside.
Although the box is small, we were impressed with what we discovered – these have been so well thought out.
We used the Carddies to discuss the nativity story and then he was let loose with the pencils.
He had lots of fun colouring in all the characters and adding the bases. He could then be heard acting out various scenarios!
He happily played with his set on his own but it was also a lovely toy to use together.
After dinner, the set was out again with yet another amusing scenario played out…this time involving a godmother!
As you can see there is still lots to colour in, so we’ll be getting this out again soon to add more to it.
It stores away into its small box…which means we’ve got no excuses not to buy some of the other sets!
Carddies were started by two mothers who drew the little characters for family and friends. They have now grown in to a product that is 100% British designed, made and assembled using materials of the highest quality. There is also a local connection with the company as they use a warehouse in Kent for their bigger orders (and also for assembly of the toy).
The age recommendation is 3-99 which seems spot on, as our 3 year old loved it!
With an RRP of £8.99 these would make for the perfect stocking filler!
