If you remember Kinetic Sand which was quite popular a few years back, you might be interested in the latest version - Mad Mattr. In short, it is a bit like a non-drying play-doh.
Produced by the same people that make Kinetic Sand, Mad Mattr has a more dough-like consistency than Kinetic Sand. It is firm enough to be moulded into Lego-like brick shape, which you can use to build into other structures. Like Kinetic Sand, it doesn't dry out. Check-out this clip to see a review.
So, if your kids like playing with Kinetic Sand but you didn't like how it scatters out of the container, Mad Mattr might just be the happy compromise for you and the kids.
Lifestyle Range - Reusable Cups, Bottles, and Other New Arrivals
Some of the trade fairs we attend are not restricted to just toys, games, and puzzles. Hence we come across some interesting items that we like and think are a great complement to parents on the go and busy household. Picking up a few of these items over time has now built up into our Lifestyle range.
Take for example the Memobottle range, which is a range of reusable water bottles. The main difference is the shape of their bottles. Instead of the traditional cylindrical bottles, Memobottles are rectangular which makes them easier to slide into bags and easier to carry.
Each bottle includes a black and a white lid, and comes in recycled cardboard packaging. We currently stock three sizes - A6 (375ml), A5 (750ml), and the new Slim (450ml) bottle. We also stock the leather lanyard tohelp make carrying the bottles more hands-free.
To continue with the no waste and reusable theme, we have also picked-up Frank Green reusable cups. We currently stock their 340ml Smart Cup, which lets you order a large coffee, and are awaiting stock for their other ranges to arrive.
These reusable cups have a one-handed push-button operation open and close the spill-resistant lid. Its drinking hole has been designed for optimum liquid flow. They also come with a CafePay enabled device that allows you to pay for your coffee with your cup at participating coffee shops, and saves the need to carry your wallet! Simply tap the lid on the CafePay reader at any participating coffee shop to pay for your coffee. Making the dash for takeaway coffee easy and quick.
Moving away from reusable cups and bottles, we have also picked-up the following. Can you guess what the unicorn shaped item is?
