‘Shrinkies’ WINS Arts & Crafts Product of the Year
Date Posted:27 February 2018
We are delighted to announce Shrinkies - Ultimate Collection is the winner of the Toy & Hobby Retailer Industry, 2017 Arts & Craft Product of the Year Award.
The Toy & Hobby Retailer Industry Awards recognise and reward business and product excellence in the Australian toy and hobby market. Retailers, suppliers, licensors – and members of the public – cast their votes in an online poll making for a peer-voted, retrospective take on the brands, products and people who made the biggest impact in the industry over the past 12 months.
“We’re incredibly delighted to receive this award for our Shrinkies,” says Tiger Tribe co-founder Anthony Green. “Kids just love this crafting product because it engages them through the entire process. And they end up with something really cool at the end. Parents love the product because it is mess free and nostalgic.”
Shrinkies - Ultimate Collection is a self contained activity set for kids aged 5 -10 years. Each set includes everything you need to make your own shrink art key rings or jewellery. Simply colour the beautifully illustrated designs, cut them out, pop them in the oven and then watch them magically shrink to 40% of their original size. As the artwork shrinks the colours become more intense.
“If you recall shrinking chip packets in the oven when you were young, then you will understand the magic of watching Shrinkies contract, curl up and then flatten out in the oven,” says Mr Green.
The award will be presented at the Australian Toy Hobby and Licensing Fair (4-7 March 2018).
