NEW! Kinetic Sand

Excuse us while we get a bit excited about this magical Kinetic Sand that has just arrived! Have you heard about this awesome stuff? 

The sand flows and shapes just like wet sand, but leaves surfaces and hands completely mess free. The magic ingredient is a non-toxic polymer coating that causes the sand stick only to itself in a soft clump.
You can cut, sculpt, mould, build, smooth, slice and squish it -- as you can see in this neat video:

Available in a 1kg box ($19) or 5kg box ($49) - instore and online now!

I am Supersloth

I am Supersloth.
I'm new to Shorties!
I am fuzzy and handsome.
I was designed by Karla Courtney, and you can find me in this book.
She was inspired by this video.
I've been hand-knitted with love, in Peru of course!

Oh, I also have a cape and an Instagram account...


Supersloth is in-store now, $49.
Made from premium wool blend (15% Alpaca, 5% wool, 80% acrylic), and measuring in at around 35cm. 
Capes come in purple or blue, $12 each.
