This is a Joint Review and Giveaway of Stubby Pencil Studio products from between Stubby Pencil Studio, Natural Parents Network and Natural Mom Reviews.
Stubby Pencil Studio is a wonderful online shop for families of small children. It is our go-to shop for any birthday (they have everything you need from inexpensive lovely gifts to eco-friendly party supplies!), stocking stuffers, tooth fairy treasures, and more. Stubby Pencil Studio has a carefully curated selection of wonderful products to stimulate any child’s imagination, including games, books, puzzles, and of course, art supplies. Stubby Pencil Studio offers sweet coloring books, thank you notes for kids to do themselves, a plethora of games, wrapping paper, and toys.
We tried out a huge package of goodies from Stubby Pencil Studio, including a spinny
speller, beautiful eco highlighters, sweet blank books sized perfectly for a little one's hands, notes that Teylor could color& mail off, a beautiful coloring& doodling book from Usborne, and more. We had such a blast opening and enjoying these goodies- they were an awesome way to replisnish our art supplies. I have found that kids love to take new materials and use them in ways I wouldn't have personally imagined- and these were no different! With the Finger Printing Art Kit in our package, she stamped faces on collages she cut from old National Geographic Kids magazines- and had SO much fun doing it. She also used them to stamp faces onto rocks she collected on walks, leaves, and of course, just paper. The Spinny Speller was perfect for her& came at such an amazing time. One day about a week ago, she just CLICKED on reading and has been wanting to read everything she sees- words on doors, light switches, the backs of cabines, and more. The problem is that some of these words don't make sense to her and she stumbles& gets frustrated. The Spinny Speller has four sided squares three across with letters on each square so no matter how you turn it, there's an easy to read word that stretches your kids' imagination. We also received a lovely package of Crayon Rocks which I had seen many times but never actually tried. The awesome things about these is that they teach kids the 'correct' way to hold writing utensils by the very nature of their shape. This is something Teylor has always struggled with when she picks up a pencil or marker, and I have seen these give her confidence and happiness while trying them out!
So Much Awesome
Stubby Pencil Studio was launched in 2006 to fill a gap in the market for consumers in search of eco- friendly art supplies. They now offer biodegradable soy crayons and many more eco-friendly supplies for families dedicated to living the green life. They offer products that are non-toxic, recycled, fair trade, educational, sustainable, and environemntally responsible. I think Stubby Pencil Studio is an awesome place to direct friends& family members who want to buy your family gifts for the holidays- no matter what they get it will definitely be awesome and your family will love it!
