Who doesn’t look back fondly at the joys that simple plasticine gave? Oh those colours, propelling ones creatively, enjoying that squidgy feeling of fun through your fingers and excitement in the anticipation of what could be created! Today, for the same reasons, Plasticine is just as popular with kids at home and in playgrounds and schools.
Given the steady sales of the brand since its launch on the Baby Brands Direct B2B website we have added in a few more staple choices. They include the FunTUBulous which includes jumbo plasticine slabs, also Fluro which contains as the name implies a range of neon Plasticine – 9 colours and a modelling tool. This can be purchased in a pack size so that it comes with retail display for counter tops etc. In addition, retailers can offer supply of block colour slabs of plasticine, ideal for those consumers looking for additional quantity of plain simple modelling Plasticine!
A new SKU available wholesale at Baby Brands Direct in a differentiated format is the movie maker set which comes with a ‘studio’, different backdrop scenes, as well as stickers. Kids can be further inspired by movies made from Plasticine and encouraged to learn to make their own. They can also download a helpful app. The set is ideal for gifting, particularly with the approaching festive season and comes with 12 Plasticine slabs of colour, modelling tool, camera stand and more.
With Disney’s Frozen 2 movie swiftly approaching, preparations are coming into fruition for the supply of a wholesome selection of best-selling toys. From past experience, we know that Flair’s toy styling head sales peak in the months to Xmas, and anything Anna or Elsa does too. So what could be better than a choice of 2 price points in the styling heads of these much loved heroines. Both the entry level and deluxe toys have deluxe features 14 fashion accessories, including a brush, hair clips and hair extensions. The luxury version comes with a sparkly tiara and also has magically changing lipstick, eye-shadow and nails that change with application of cold water.
Spirograph is a classic, timeless, household name. It’s entertaining and mesmerising not just for kids but the whole family, with the ability it gives to easily produce such fabulous designs. The history of the invention took root in 1827 by English architect and engineer Peter Hubert Desvignes who developed his “Speiragraph”, a machine to create elaborate spiral drawings, intended to prevent bank note forgeries. The Spirograph as it is known today was developed by the British engineer Denys Fisher, who exhibited it at the 1965 Nuremberg International Toy Fair and subsequently produced by his company.
The creative, tool that uses cogs, putty and pens to create geometric designs comes in many shapes and sizes and is distributed by Baby Brands Direct to independent retailers in a choice of 4 Spirograph sets. They all come with instructions and design sheets so kids can be confident in making a start with drawing immediately.
The sets range from a SRP of £9.99 with The Original Spirograph Design Set Boxed to £29.99 with The Original Spirograph Deluxe Set with the latter including 19 x Spirograph precision wheels, 2 x Spirograph precision rings, 1 x Spirograph precision rack, 18 oz (5g) of reusable Spiro-Putty, 3 x fine line design pens, 1 x guide book, 20 x sheets of design paper and a carry-along storage case with built-in work surface. At the mid-point range, is The Original Spirograph Cyclex Spiral Drawing Tool which is particularly useful for younger entrants as the unique rotating stencil wheels of the Cyclex make it easier to prevent accidental slippage. The next one up, The Original Spirograph Set With Markers suitable from 8 years includes 30 pieces and reusable Spiro-putty to keep is securely in place on the paper. The Spirograph was a 2014 Toy of the Year finalist in two categories and is a toy that is able to hold the attention of kids and get their cogs turning! So why not offer it in store!
