Countdown to Christmas

With awesome Advent creations.

We have beautiful Advent hair accessories, Advent chocolate calendar displays perfect for pre-Christmas parties and cute Elf countdown boards for your family or maybe your office!

We also have fun reading books for advent, wax melts to make your room smell gorgeous and festive and an Advent stocking calendar for special treats.

These gemstone keyrings would be perfect for Advent gifts if you’re creating your own. We have new baubles for you to choose from and a Christmas fairy to put on top of your tree on the last day is surely a must have.  

Have you seen the Adult Alternative Stockings that will be available? Why not take a look around at the Christmas plaques for your wall too. Don’t forget your Advent calendar card for your friends.

This adorable teddy would make a fabulous Christmas Eve gift, with a mini sand art kit and this stunning reindeer headband. What do you think?

Dark Crystal party

October is a month of birthdays within KLE.

It’s Laura’s birthday this month <3

My husband and daughter celebrate their birthdays this month too <3

This year my little girl, Connie, wants a Dark Crystal themed Escape Rooms style birthday! And you know what…bring it on!!! If I can make events happen online then I can do them offline too.

The Dark Crystal Age of Resistance is on Netflix and it is awesome. It has taken the original movie and created an amazing series from it. It has all the wonderful puppetry and gorgeous scenes. We loved watching this as a family.

MMmmmmm <3

“Hello my Gelfling friends. I am The All Maudra, Head of all the Gelflings.
You are here on your Shard Quest and to celebrate Connie’s 7th birthday.”

So that’s the beginning of my speech for the party. And yep, I’ll have to dress up 😉

I’m going to style 5 rooms of our house into Dark Crystal themed rooms. Each with a puzzle experience that go with a short story that I’ve typed for the kids. Connie will be 7 and is so unbelievably excited since I said yes I’ll try to do this for her.

No pressure!

So we have 6 children coming along…I don’t think I’ll get any more in the rooms tbh.

This is my conservatory, aka craft room. It has been completely taken over by my daughter who loves to make things. <3

That pink thing on the chair is the start of our “Crystal of Truth”. It has a little hole in so the kids can put a “Crystal Shard” into it at the end of the party. What they and Connie don’t know, is that at the end of the party this will be a pinyata full of sweets. 🙂

I’ve not finished it yet. It’s just drying.

The blue thing in the background is actually my bin. Now known as the Sword Bin because I can’t remember what the sword tree thing in “Stone in the wood” is called in the series. That is actually finished (but not in this photo) and now full of shredded paper.

I should point out that Connie knows nothing about the puzzles. She is helping with the decorations but I am keeping all puzzles and the story to myself…although I might share them with you all if you want me too?

Have another bit of speech…

“You will work as a team on your quest, solving puzzles and gathering items that you will have to keep with you until the end. By the time you have completed your quest you should have found 8 messages, 2 pieces of the Dual Glaive sword and The Shard. You will find other things along the way but they are the most important.”

This weekend I made a simple door for the kids to get through. This will be in the middle of the living room separating the All Maudra’s throne room from the “Cave of Grot”.

The style on the front goes with the window I’ve created for the throne room. I say window…its a big piece of paper stuck on my wall.

Connie is just making sure it works x

The “Cave of Grot” room is my living room. Luckily its blue so doesn’t need too much decoration…she says!

I’ve created a “Sanctuary tree”, stones and blue moss. I’ve used my clothes horse and blankets as a cave wall to hide the tv. What do you think so far?

Under the tree there will be my plasma ball which is sound reactive. That’s going to give them “Gelfling powers”…they are 7 after all, who doesn’t like having powers!!

I took a days annual leave last week to sort out puzzles and test-drive things while Connie was at school.

This is not finished but its a good start. It looks much better in person. Shall I do you a video on the day before the kids turn up?

I’ll keep a blog too and show you updates if you want me to.

Journey to be continued…

Treasures in our toy town

I don’t know about you but my daughter has a million toys in her bedroom that she doesn’t play with…at all! They have been sitting their since Boxing Day..because she played with them on Christmas Day and then took them upstairs the day after. Never to be touched AGAIN.

So, our question to you is…Are you looking for something different to buy your children this year?

In our toy town (aka our website!) you’ll find handmade creations that would fit a stocking or an awesomely big Christmas box (because who wants a small one?!) 🙂

You won’t find items for boys or girls on our website. We believe that boys and girls can play with whatever they want to play with <3 So go nuts with your search!!

Here are a few of the items we have to get you thinking 🙂

Why not casually throw these ideas into conversations with your kids and see how they react, because you don’t have to buy today, you can come back tomorrow 🙂

We’ve got Craft

We’ve got imagination

We’ve got bedroom decor

We’ve even got clothes

The first craft item we have is FREE. Just download the graphic and print it off onto card at home. A fab quick crafty stocking filler.

The little ones can make their own sweet box, they’ll love it….you’ll have to buy the sweets though!

Shaped colourful crayons are totally awesome for children. Check out these roarsome dinosaurs!

Kelly does many different shaped wax crayons and this is just one example from our website.

We’ve had a few sticker books on our website over the last few months.

My daughter loves sticker books…not all the stickers go in the books mind 😉

Wonder how a sticker book can help your child? Read this blog from SEN.

Let their imagination run wild with a fairy door…..or full blown Fairy Castle <3

Be prepared to be busy though, there comes a lot of responsibility with a fairy door. Take a read here to see what we mean.

If your child loves their gaming console then this is the present for you. This has got to be one of the coolest gifts you could get them for their bedroom.

Have it painted whatever colours you want…match their favourite sport colours or even their bedroom walls.

We have a very cute pencil tin which can be personalised.

Perfect for home and school.

All children are Super so why not get this awesome t-shirt with a mask design.

It comes on different colour tops and also as a babygro.

And why not let them look rainbowtastic with this beautiful hair accessory. 

A fabulous stocking filler…why…you could fill a stocking with hair accessories!

Join us for online shopping 24/7 and fun online events throughout the year.

Our next event is all about Halloween.
