Our story

Handcrafted crackers with no plastic toys inside

We started making handmade Christmas cards, advent calendars (the traditional calendars with a picture behind each window), Christmas decorations, yule logs and crackers, and sold these at craft fairs soon realising it was our eco friendly crackers that got the most attention. So we decided to concentrate on these and expand our collection.

So why make crackers in the first place? Well we thought we'd make better crackers than the mass produced ones you see in the shops with manufactured plastic toy contents that you use once and then throw away.

Primarily crackers are disposable so with this in mind we wanted ours to be recyclable wherever possible. So we came up with the idea of creating paper puzzles to go inside the crackers. For example in our early Christmas crackers we created a wordsearch, spot the difference, dot-to-dot, maze, crosswords and anagrams. In addition we added a small pencil to complete the puzzle. Once the puzzle was completed you had a handy little pencil you could use again and again!
