Events Little Brian News Paint Sticks


Well, what a weekend! We have to admit, we didn’t know what to expect about Gloworm Festival but, WOW, it was truly fantastic and we’ll certainly be going back!

Throughout the weekend at Nottinghamshire’s Clumber Park, our Paint Sticks were the talk of the festival with both parents and children loving the Classic, Metallic and Day Glow colours!

But, let’s rewind the clock back to Friday when we arrived at the festival created for little people!

It was a great feeling donning the wellies, setting up our colourful stand and getting in the festival spirit!

Located in the popular Play Village, Saturday morning saw us open the stall and our Paint Sticks were a real hit which was amazing! Everybody, both young and old were purchasing the different colours we had on offer. Not only that, we even supplied our Paint Sticks to the Dino Craft Zone and youngsters made their very own dinosaur eggs with the Classic colours!

It really was great to meet all the parents and children who attended the festival. They even contributed to making our biggest ever masterpiece, a colourful roll of paper that totalled over 6FT in length!

And at night time, the festival didn’t close down as everyone ‘reached for the stars’ and had an ‘S Club Party’ as S Club 7 performed all of their songs!

Gloworm Festival was our first festival and it certainly won’t be our last. We will be returning to another family festival again, so watch this space!

Wahey! We are once again in the running for yet another award!

Our Paint Sticks have been shortlisted to scoop top prize in the Best Art/Craft category at the MadeForMums Toy Awards 2017.

To say we are happy is an understatement! Now, it is the waiting game as our Paint Sticks have been sent off to the independent panel of testers which is made up of the people who matter to us the most; parents and children! They’ll sample the toys before MadeForMums announce the winners in October.

Our very own sales and marketing director Lara Alcock said:
“Well, well, well, yet another shortlist that Paint Sticks will be appearing on!

“Everybody that is part of the Little Brian family is over the moon and we’re so proud to hear that our products are constantly being recognised at prestigious awards within the toy industry!

“Of course, we are keeping level headed, magnificent brands and toys enter these awards and it certainly won’t be easy, there will be some tough competition for us to fight off but we’re extremely confident in Paint Sticks and we are excited for the MadeForMums announcement in October.”

The annual MadeForMums Toy Awards celebrate the best toys at every age and stage, from newborn to preteens which is great for Paint Sticks to be recognised so highly.

Twenty-six categories have attracted a number of entries whilst there is also a special Editor’s choice award, with the shortlist compiled from the winners on the day.

Our fingers are firmly crossed!
