Playrama Poster

Phew! I’ve just finished designing a Playrama poster to go into shops. Many thanks to Paul Leyland for his photo. I never realised but getting the right photos of children is fantastically difficult. Of hundreds shot just one or two really work where the subject is properly lit, has just the right expression, posture and all looks genuine, rather than staged. It’s all so much more than just pressing the shutter button. I take my hat off to photographers the world over!

I designed this model about 12 years ago and it’s still downloaded hundreds of times a month. It makes a good easy introduction to card modelling for those of you wanting to build your very own mini-getaway retreat in the woods.

Playrama at the Christmas Rural Living Show – Taunton 30th Nov 1st Dec

Jo and I are very excited that we are exhibiting Playrama at the Rural Living Show in Taunton on the weekend of  the 30th November – 1st December. The detailed highly technical blueprint (don’t worry if it’s beyond your understanding) you see above is the outline for our proposed stand.

You can find out more about the Rural Living Christmas show here. It’s a fabulous weekend where you can buy a good sized heap of Christmas prezzies all under one roof while enjoying the seasonal ambiance and odd mince pie. Look out for us at the Playrama stand, (You won’t miss it’s epic scale, glittering bling and general Christmas exuberance.) where you can spend your entire Christmas present budget in the full knowledge that our Playrama products will delight and excite the happy recipients, forever boosting your esteem in their eyes beyond anything other gifts can achieve. Look out for the special offers on Playramas too!

Aaaand.. if that wasn’t enough I have 6 tickets to the Rural Living Show, (each worth £3) to give to the first of you who’ve managed to struggle to the end of this over-inflated hype and stay awake long enough to email me below.

The March of the Cute Mini-Kittens

The armies of mini-kittens

Terrifying!This is what has confronted Jo and I as we pack ready for the Christmas rush – armies of the cutest, cuddly-wuddly flwuffy kitties.

These little stand up fellas come in a pack of 5 with a stand and envelope.  Aww. They’re all the rage! What a lovely novel alternative they make to the usual boring old folded Christmas card with a dab of glitter.

You see armies now, but hurry over to the Playrama website and grab some for yourself, because they’ll go quickly!
