Colouring In – Fun For All Ages!

24

Apr 2015

We’ve been so pleased to see ‘Adult Colouring Books’ becoming best sellers in recent months, and even more delighted to see research to suggest colouring in “stimulates brain areas related to motor skills, the senses and creativity” for adult participants. Johanna Basford is the best selling creator of Secret Garden (below) and says “there’s something quite charming and nostalgic about colouring in.” We agree!

This reinforces the importance of encouraging children to take part in creative activities such as colouring in, and we couldn’t be more proud of our range of colouring books (click here) featuring dot-to-dot images, Magic Painting Books (brush water across them to make colours appear), Magic Pictures (hidden pictures to rub with a coin and then colour in with crayons or felt pens), and more!

We’ve also made some great ‘Mini Masterpiece‘ templates available to print off and colour in (no matter what age you are!) which you can find on our website here.

Have you or your little ones created any outstanding works of art with the help of a colouring in image? We would love to see them, so tweet us @GaltToys or post to our Facebook to share!

Royal Baby Giveaway!

17

Apr 2015

Naturally we get excited at every pregnancy announcement, but the Royal baby has brought the whole country (and many further afield) into a collective period of giddiness as the birth is nearly upon us!

To celebrate we are giving an Ambi® Toys Baby Gift Set to anyone who gets their own new arrival on the same day as HRH The Duchess of Cambridge! On top of that, the lovely people at Prima Baby Magazine are contributing a copy of their latest edition for each new mother to flick through when they have a rare moment of peace and quiet.

The Ambi® Toys Baby Gift Set includes five popular Ambi® products, including; Lock a Block, Humpty Dumpty, Twin Rattle, Trumpet and First Keys. Each has been specially designed, encouraging a baby’s gradual discovery of themselves, others and the surrounding world. To see the full Ambi® Toys range click here.

How to claim:

Are you expecting a little prince(ss) any day now? If they arrive on the same day as the Royal baby, simply contact us at royalbaby@jamesgalt.com to let us know the good news and we will arrange to send out an Ambi® Toys Baby Gift Set and a copy of Prima Baby Magazine!

Entries for the giveaway will only be accepted once the arrival of the royal baby has been announced. The winners will be chosen 14 days after this date, with new parents expected to provide proof that their child shares a birthday with the royal baby by sending a photograph of their hospital wristband or birth certificate if they are selected as winners. Gifts will only be awarded to the first 30 claimants.

Apr 2015

Hasn’t the weather been amazing this week?! It’s been lovely seeing the sun shining, especially with lots of lambs appearing in the fields to make it feel like Spring has officially sprung!

Many of you will have been busy planning activities whilst the little ones are on Easter holidays, so hopefully the sunshine will have helped you have lots of fun outdoors.

If you’re doing lots of travelling with children, we spotted something very useful this week:
