I am beyond thrilled to be celebrating the launch of six new Cupcakes for Clara kits today. As if six new kits wasn't exciting enough, there's a big old virtual tea and cake party going on here too. Grab yourselves a cuppa and a sweet treat and get ready for some loveliness.
There's a great big giveaway too but...
wait one minute...
Quickly head here to download some free activity sheets to keep your little ones entertained while you enjoy your hot cup of tea.
Go, go, go!
It won't take long to print them, and then you can browse the new products in peace. Like what I did there?! Tee hee!
Are you back? Are they settled? With crayons and everything? Awesome.
The large kits are a bluebird, a piglet, a lion, and a sparrow. The mini kits are both to make finger puppets - one makes three birds, and the other makes three kittens.
And what's even more exciting... with the new kits comes the launch of my new packaging. All tweleve kits have had the fancy pants new packaging treatment.
Actually I should say grumpy pants packaging as every kit features a pair of Clara's grumpy pants on the back. Tee hee!
I am beyond thrilled with the new packaging. Who would have thought it would make such a difference? I just love it. And secretly I'm really rather proud of it.
Each kit has colour coded sides which make them pretty, and make them really easy for me to know which is which when they're stacked in the cupboard. Clever huh?!
They are exactly the same boxes as before with the same contents, just with the addition of the sleeves.
The mini kits however have had a bit more of a change.
They have moved from boxes into these gorgeous tin tie bags. They're designed as coffee bags I think, and they're still 100% recycled and eco friendly. I love them! Especially next to the bigger boxes. Ooh, and they have euro slot hangers too so that they can easily hang on racks in shops.
All of the new kits are available now.
And for this week only you can use the code "grumpypants" to get 20% off in the Etsy shop. That's 20% off everything too, not just the kits.
You can also win yourself a whole bundle of them too. To celebrate the launch of them, and your fabulous support whilst I've been developing them, I'm giving away two bundles.
~ Bundle one is a bird themed bundle. It includes a sparrow kit, a bluebird kit, and a bird finger puppets mini kit.
~ Bundle two is an animal themed bundle. It includes a piglet kit, a lion kit, and a kitten finger puppets mini kit.
To enter please leave a comment on this blog post letting me know which bundle you would like to win. The giveaway is open to everyone from every country and it closes on Friday March 8th at 9pm GMT.
Please do share on facebook, twitter, pinterest, instagram, blogs, posters on garden walls, over the phone, in the coffee shop, and generally shout about it to your friends!
So finish off that lovely cup of tea, nibble those last crumbs of cake, share the details with your friends, and enter the giveaway. Oh and of course if you fancy buying any of the kits that would be absolutely fine too!
And don't forget to download the free activity sheets to keep your little ones occupied while you drink tea, eat cake, and have a browse through the virtual shelves.
