Created for kids aged three and over, Carddies are retro activity sets inspired by traditional colouring-in play.

The colourful, robust boxes contain 12 hand double-sided card figures, 12 colouring pencils and 12 stands. Each one comes with a backdrop to colour in too.

Carddies come in eight different varieties: ballet, fairies, football, cavemen, school, knights and there are two families sets. All of the designs are hand-drawn.

Two sisters came up with the idea for Carddies on a wet summers day. They began drawing characters on the back of cereal packets to keep their children amused and the idea grew from there. Carddies are currently selling on Amazon.
