Hunter Price International has released the details of its first collections with Crayola. The collections will launch in Tesco and Poundland in August.

“Crayola’s partnership with Hunter Price expands the possibilities children in the U.K. have to creatively express themselves,” says Rob Spindley, licensing director, EMEA, Crayola. “These innovative products will complement the core Crayola range – which is distributed by Goliath in the U.K. and northern Europe – increasing the opportunities to inspire and engage children’s imaginations.”

A capsule collection will debut in 200 Tesco stores for the new range Crayola Kraft, created by the team at Hunter Price in collaboration with Crayola. Crayola Kraft is a predominantly paper-based range, and the first range is plastic free, recyclable, printed with vegetable-based inks and FSC certified.

“Over the past 12 months, the team has worked tirelessly to develop more than 100 new product concepts and get them ready for retail,” says Ben Cornwell, sales director, stationery, arts and craft, Hunter Price International. “To launch one of our very first new ranges – Crayola Kraft –with Tesco will be a hugely proud moment for the whole team. We’ve been all over the world in recent months, laying the foundations for the vision we’re bringing to life for our Crayola ranges, and I truly believe we’re offering something different in this market. We’re now off the mark with this first launch, and it’s full steam ahead with some huge announcements to follow very soon.”

The two other products in the collection include a Card Making Kit and a 3D Wooden Animal Kit, with five assorted animals that can be colored and decorated.

The second new collection concept is Crayola Everyday, a range of 19 products designed to encourage crafting and creativity every day, which will launch in more than 400 Poundland stores nationwide. The range features different themes and characters, including monsters, unicorns and under the sea.
