From magical, colour-changing felt tips to blow art sets, Maped Helix has released its guide to help make traditional Christmas stocking full of small yet meaningful gifts.
Maped Helix’s top picks for stocking fillers include:
Maped Color’Peps Magic Felt Tip Pens
What’s Christmas without a bit of magic? These Maped Color’Peps Magic Felt Tip Pens feature colour-changing ink that puts a twist on every drawing your child creates.
The pack includes eight long-life felt tip pens and two magic colour reveal pens. Simply draw with one of the brightly coloured felt tips and use the revealer to change the colour of the ink in seconds.
Color’Peps Jungle Felt Tip Pens
Say goodbye to the time and energy-sapping exercise of lost felt tip lids. The 12 premium quality, ultra-bright felt tips come with a stand with in-built caps. Once the child has finished with the pen they simply pop it back in the stand, bringing an end to the problem of dried-up felt tips.
It's a patented design that has won two National Stationery Awards. Not only that, but it’s also small enough to fit in a pencil case or bag.
Maped Creativ Aqua Art
There are three different themes to choose from - Unicorns, Forest Animals (maxi set), and Dance. Thanks to a clever water colour brush, drawings come alive and reach a new artistic dimension.
Suitable for kids aged seven or above, posters are coloured using special pencils and then painted over with a brush. Their artwork will then turn into a water colour painting.
Maped Creativ - Dino Factory
Winner of the gold medal in the Creative Category at the Independent Toy Awards, the Creativ Dino Factory develops creativity by giving children the chance to build their own dinosaur figurines to display or play with.
First children can bring their dino to life by assembling the 3D wooden skeleton, using the numbers as a guide. Next, the skeleton is covered with different coloured hardening dough and finished with dinosaur eyes.
Maped Color’Peps Infinity Coloured Pencils
These Infinity pencils are made entirely of lead, meaning they can be used from start to finish without the need for sharpening.
Awarded Best Children’s Stationery Product at this year’s National Stationery Awards, they last 10 times longer than a standard coloured pencil, with zero waste.
The pencils have been designed to self-sharpen while colouring, bringing an end to messy shavings and making them perfect for pencil cases and colouring on the go.
Creativ Blow Pen Art
The set comes with a flexible tube that is connected to the coloured felt pens. An airbrush effect is created by gently blowing into the tube, bringing a new twist to traditional art techniques.
Everything is included, not least six vibrant Maped Jungle felt tips, providing a range of colours to work with. There are also four printed cards to use and 10 rubber bands to help children create more intricate designs. The Creativ Blow Pen is easy to use and recommended for children aged five and above.
