We were delighted when the Seedlings Design Your Own Pencil Case from John Lewis arrived and my daughter could not wait to get started on it.
This has easy to open and recyclable packaging with a simple but attractive front that shows what’s included so you know what’s included before you buy. All contents were of high quality the pencil case looks like it’s meant to last.
The set is supplied with a large canvas pencil case, 12 colouring pencils, 6 different coloured paint tubes and instructions.
My daughter had great fun and it took up a good couple of hours do a design then painting it. It’s great that you can paint both sides and it had easy to follow instructions. The only down side is that I think it’s fairly expensive , at £18.99, for what it is, but I would rather pay for a good quality item rather than less for a product that won’t last. Plus there is also the entertainment value of creating your own unique design as my daughter spend a good couple of hours getting her design just right.
I think this would make an ideal present for any child into arts and crafts and it definitely has a thumbs up from my daughter.
Suitable age: 5 years +
