MY LITTLE WORLD FAIRY VILLAGE
My Little World was set up by two dads, Tim Frost and Richard Walkling. Tim is the illustrator of the brand and has worked on some of the biggest brands in children’s animation, including Peppa Pig, Hey Duggee, Ben and Holly’s Little Kingdom, and Moshi Monsters. With his simple, bold style, Tim creates appealing and instantly recognisable characters and settings. Dad to a boy and a girl, Tim is also a BAFTA juror.
Richard is an expert in building brands and businesses, and ‘making things’. He has designed, packaging, products, and promotional materials for some of the largest brands in the world, including Yankee Candle and Sony Playstation. Richard is dad to two girls.
So What is My Little World?
My Little World is simple cardboard craft which takes children aged four to nine on a journey of creativity, imagination and role-play. Each set comprises of 12 cards featuring stunning black and white illustrations of characters, buildings and extras, which can be coloured in or left in monochrome. Once the child has coloured in the elements using the included 12 pencils, they are cut out and stood up using the stands enclosed, and little ones can start to create their own imaginary worlds.
In a choice of themes available such as Village High Street, Emergency Services, Space Station Foxtrot, Christmas Time, Airport and Fairy Village there is so much adventure to be had.
I couldn’t wait for Grace to see the set we selected for review. We have chosen Fairy Village as she loves mythological creatures so this set sounded absolutely perfect for her as she does love to colour in and has a great imagination too.
It arrived very prompt and fit through the letter box.
Each character has a name and a short bio to help get the creativity flowing, and the elements are double sided with different emotions and expressions displayed on each side to increase the story possibilities.
With a huge nod to sustainability, everything other than the pencils and stands are manufactured in the UK using card from sustainable sources and are 100 percent recyclable.
The sets have also been designed to be gender neutral and fully inclusive for all children. The characters are fairly distributed between male and female in each set. For example, Captain Erica appears in the Airport set, while there are both ‘boy’ and ‘girl’ bears playing the roles of police officers in Emergency Services set.
Included within this set are
- Fairy Rabbits and Dogs
- Mushroom Houses
- Fairy Palace
- Wizard’s Cottage
- Fairy Disco
- Plus magical Scenery and Flowers
With such a great variety, we really wasn’t sure where to start!
Grace eventually decided she would start on the Mushroom House.
She liked that she could choose any colours that she liked, as it is a ‘magical village’ where all the colours can be crazy!
We did continue this over a few days, as she said she was tired after colouring a sheet or two.
As the colouring progressed her Fairy Village was beginning to take form.
With many different characters also included, we coloured and then cut out the characters and scenes as we went keeping them all in the box safe.
Fair to say Grace is really pleased with how this has turned out.
There has been hours spent creating this Fairy Village scene. I love how she is getting really good value for money within this set.
With everything included other than scissors, the £4.99 packs represent great value and better still, the play value is endless. Children can look for the hidden gems – birds, additional treats and cute added features in the scenes.
