WINNER: GOLD BEST CHILDREN’S PARTY BRAND
WHO: Craft & Crumb
WHAT: Ready made, beautifully designed party bags containing a recipe and all the ingredients for kids to make their own sweet treats at home. Each cardboard tote box is personalised with the recipient’s name and were created to take the plastic and the stress out of making up party bags.
WHY: These extremely pleasing looking boxes (we love the fact that they stack so neatly!) really appealed to our judges who were excited by the idea of zero fuss, ready made party bags that would give children another activity at home rather than adding to the piles of plastic detritus that most kids accumulate in a matter of months. Recipes like marshmallow goo popcorn and unicorn cupcakes will have mini bakers zooming into the kitchen. Our judges said:
