JUNIOR DESIGN AWARDS 2020 GOLD WINNER: Best Children’s Party Brand

WHO: Cotton Twist – Eco Friendly & Creative Party Fillers

WHAT: A playful selection of engaging & enduring crafty activities, keepsake tins, colouring cards & invitations for goody bags and party gifts, with an emphasis on sustainability.

WHY: No more landfill! Most parents have had that sinking, guilty feeling that comes when its time to throw away the plastic detritus that accumulates underfoot when party bags have passed their entertainment sell by date. Our judges loved this selection of activity led crafts and kits, which not only cut the plastic out of parties but give kids something meaningful and engaging to play with and items that become keepsakes rather than rubbish. The strong emphasis on sustainable & recyclable materials made our panel jump with glee and the personalisation option was also much appreciated.

Absolutely brilliant brand, love the eco friendly element and very child friendly.

An innovative way to host parties with current restrictions in place.

I love Captain Fantastic parties - the entertainers are top class. I have full admiration for how they turned their business model on its head during Covid-19. Tommy and his team led the way when it came to online/zoom parties, entertainment and a full programme session for children during lockdown. Captain Fantastic is a modern hero!
