I am always on the search for amazing gifts, hey it’s my job right? I found French brand Omy Design & Play a few years ago when I discovered their large scale colouring posters and I mean LARGE scale and fell in love!
They were one of the first, if not THE first company, to produce them back in 2012 and I adored that they created pages of some of our favourite cities like London, New York, Paris and Sydney. My sister gave one of the London box sets to my eldest son for Christmas in 2014 and we have had so much fun colouring it in since then.
For my first Bazaar I thought it would be an awesome idea to have some large scale colouring as one of the kids activities on offer. Omy Design & Play kindly sponsored this activity for the Bazaar and the kids (and adults) loved the ability to colour in the map of Sydney and the world.
The XXL colouring in sheets are 1m x 1.8m and they are amazing to use as you could put them up in a kids bedroom wall as a mural to colour in and decorate the wall. Or do what we did and use them to entertain children at a party or event.
We have also given the Omy Pocket Games packs as presents to friends’ children and used them as stocking fillers at Christmas. These little activity packs are 1m long paper which roll up into a small box and have mazes, puzzles and colouring in across the paper. They easily fit in to a handbag for out and about to entertain kids and come with a multi coloured pencil as well.
I also have my eye on the Christmas placemat sets too as I think they would be awesome to entertain the kids over a long lunch, or numerous long lunches which Christmas is in our family!
And lastly check out their new colouring in decals for walls and puzzles too! So many cool gift ideas just in time for Christmas.
Thank you again to Omy for sponsoring our large colouring in activity at the inaugural Bazaar launch, we will welcome the activity back at the next Bazaar on Sunday 11th December as there is still so much colouring to do!
