Crayola Letter Art by The Letteroom

The Letteroom specialises in personalised gifts, which isn’t that unusual, but their Crayola Letter Art is something a bit different.

Housed in a white wooden box frame, it consists of a capital letter made entirely from Crayola crayons of different lengths and colours. You get to pick the letter obviously, but you can also chose between multi-coloured crayons, shades of pinks or shades of blue.  It would make a good  gift for a child or an adult nostalgic for childhood.

Buy it directly from The Letteroom for £37.50

I don’t know about you, but I know everyone in my class went through a craze for bubble writing back in the 1980s, so this book “How to be the Best Bubble Writer in the World Ever” by Linda Scott brought back some childhood memories.

The book devotes a double page spread to each of the hand-drawn typefaces it features, with one page devoted to the alphabet in that style and the other page showing the inspiration behind it. The book contains various activities to get you doodling creatively.

Buy it from Amazon for £6.12.

My Egg and Soldiers

My Egg and Soldiers set by Takae Mizutani and Sons is a product inspired by that childhood favourite of egg and toast soldiers.

The egg cup is shaped like a castle, but where this set is truly unique is that the toast gets its own container too – a horse-shaped cup, so they can look like toy soldiers going into battle.

The Egg and Soldiers set is available in either white or natural and costs £22.85 from Brighton Pod.
