Kirsty has just launched a brand new playkit which is sure to raise a smile and entice big and small kids to get creative. The circus kit includes all your favourite characters to cut out, colour in, slot together and play...

Lovely Pigeon was inspired by her love of handlebar moustaches, clever animals and monochrome pattern to create this entertaining little playkit.
We also have new work by Seymour, Astrid Jaekel, TattyDevine and many more!
