John Crane were offering mummy bloggers a chance to snap up a limited edition Emma Talbot print, I asked nicely and crossed my fingers and they were lovely enough to send me one! In my day job I'm a graphic designer and so one of my loves is great design and illustration. I'm a sucker for cute children's prints and beautifully illustrated books so I was excited to look Emma Talbot up!
What I found was a passionate, fresh new illustrator with an evident soft spot for rabbits and using environmentally friendly methods. Her blog is gorgeous and warmly invites you in, I'd recommend a peak. I found Emma's designs just so lovable and I can see why she would be the perfect choice to work with John Crane toys.
Part of what we love about John Crane products is their beautiful attention to detail and topnotch design. Emma's illustrations will feature on some all new toys in the Tidlo range from puzzles, to cuddly plushes. The idea of her illustrations on puzzles is perhaps most exciting for us, my little one loves puzzling over jigsaws more than anything at the moment and I find it surprisingly hard to find ones with nice pictures.
The print they sent us was very sweet and we were excited to get it through the post. Squiggle loves animals so she loved her little panda print and he is certainly going up on the wall. Bright and fun he's bringing extra cheer to those magnolia walls! A great taster for some exciting new products to come.
Thanks so much John Crane for choosing us to receive one, what a treat!! x
