Bits and Pieces

Mums love us

So we’ve heard…It appears that our Rugby Edition Alphabet Flashcards are helping a few Mums out there hold their own in rugby season. Something good about not feeling stupid about sport! We love that they are benefiting the whole family!

Exclusive Top-of-the-South stockists of Frankie’s Magic Football

We are now the exclusive Nelson stockists of Frank Lampard’s series of football story books – woo hoo! Frank Lampard is an English international footballer, who came up with the idea of Frankie’s Magic Football while reading bedtime stories to his daughters. The books combine adventure stories with football and friends.  We are selling them to help raise money for the Nelson Falcons Youth Football team, which represents Under 20 year old footballers from across the Top of the South Island. The Nelson Falcons is the coolest football team to play in the ASB Youth League (well we think so), and is currently the national champion, playing for the title once again!

Boys with special needs

It is heartening to hear how boys with special needs around the world are also enjoying Sport in Art -Rugby Edition flashcards and jigsaws. Having a love of rugby means boys are keen to play with Sport in Art, compared to other products that they can’t relate to. Concentration is improved – but they also just have fun! We’re loving that!

The official launch

Sport in Art – Rugby Edition was officially launched with an exhibition of the original artworks in November 2011. The exhibition was held at the Refinery Artspace Nelson.  The launch evening was all about the kids, who played with the flashcards and jigsaws on the rugby field and enjoyed the half time refreshments – these photos show the space before the kids arrived!
