Fimo fosters creativity. It’s a much more interesting way to keep kids entertained than to sit them down in front of the television
(PRWEB UK) 13 July 2012
Top jewellery making retailer Cookson Gold has the perfect way to keep kids entertained this summer – with a range of popular Fimo Soft Kits for Kids.
The kits contain colourful blocks of Fimo clay and easy-to-follow instructions – everything that children need to beat boredom and get their creative juices flowing during the school holidays.
Fimo is soft polymer clay that’s easy to shape by hand or with basic tools. Special Fimo kits for kids contain Fimo Soft clay, which is even easier to form into unique shapes.
Once kids have completed their creations, Fimo can be set in a standard household oven. Once set, it’s hard and durable – so kids’ Fimo pieces will last for years and years.
Each kit contains instructions and enough Fimo to create two colourful characters – such as the Pets kit, which allows kids to create a cool cat and a spotty Dalmatian, or the Monsters/Dinosaurs kit, which focuses on prehistoric beasts.
This year, Cookson Gold is offering two new kits that are sure to be a hit with young boys and girls – the Princess kit and the Space kit.
Cookson Gold also supplies a range of Fimo jewellery making kits (http://www.cooksongold.com/FIMO-Polymer-Clay/-Range=Fimo_Kits_for_Kids/-Colour=0/-Effect=0/-Type=0/-Size=0/&prdsearch=y), so children can create colourful bracelets, rings and more. Once set, kids can wear their own jewellery pieces, each of which will be completely unique.
Adam Hunter, E-Commerce Manager at Cookson Gold, spoke about the continued popularity of the Fimo range.
“These kits are always in high demand during the summer months – and it’s because parents know that Fimo is a great way to keep their kids busy before they go back to school,” he said.
“They’re fantastic boredom busters, and once kids realise how fun it is to see their own creations come to life, they can’t wait to show them off to their friends and family.
“Fimo fosters creativity. It’s a much more interesting way to keep kids entertained than to sit them down in front of the television – and it’s a great way for parents and kids to spend some quality time together.”
As well as Fimo kits to help create wacky pieces, Cookson Gold sells Fimo moulds and rollers – which are safe and easy to use – and can help kids create even more intricate designs.
And with next-day delivery on all items ordered before 3pm, parents stuck with the kids over a rainy weekend can grab a Fimo kit to help keep boredom at bay.
Cookson Gold also has a solution for parents bitten by the creative bug this summer. Jewellery making amateurs and enthusiasts will love Cookson Gold’s new magazine, The Bench, which is full of ideas and tips from jewellery making experts. The first issue, released in April, received great feedback from readers.
The second issue of The Bench will be released this month.
