About

 

 

 

Kids Creative is a children's brand that designs and makes quality children's furniture and personalised gifts. Kids Creative vision is to design quality products that create a fun and interesting environments for your little ones!

Kids Creative is run by myself, Kate Caven. I am a young Scottish designer based in Stirlingshire. As the owner and designer of Kids Creative, I have a passion to design and make quality products for little ones. I not only wanted to design and build quality products for children but design them so that adults would love them too.

I started my business in 2015 after gaining an honours degree in Product Design. With my love for design I decided to set up on my own and since then it has been quite an adventure. 

I have designed a range of beautiful children's furniture as well as personalised gifts and you can find my range on 'Not on the high street.com'

 https://www.notonthehighstreet.com/kidscreative

All my products are made in my workshop and everything is made from start to finish, no outsourcing needs to take place. This means I have full control of your products all the way through their manufacturing process.

Kids Creative products are made from 18mm high quality birch plywood and beautiful laminate. The materials have been chosen to create a durable, long lasting and safe product for children.

 

 

 

 

 

Over the last few months I have been designing and prototyping a selection of simple kids wooden toys. I have always loved well made products and have spent time making sure that these toys are to the highest standard. All toys are made to BSI safety standards EN 71 and CE marked.

Kickstarter is a huge platform for helpful people like you, who wish to help support small businesses and creative people like me. Without you, we may not be able to bring our ideas and designs to such a wide marketplace. I hope that you will share this journey with me to ensure more children enjoy playing with these quality toys. It is my desire that each crafted product will become treasured toys which are used for many years and passed down throughout generations to come.

In this image, Ben was inquisitive, asking how the toys are made and really interested in how they are put together.

The toys have been designed and manufactured in my workshop in Stirling.

- Materials (18mm Birch Plywood and Egger laminate) 

- The birch plywood and Egger laminate together create a durable, sturdy and hygienic product.

- Once the wood and laminate are bonded, it is taken out of the press and placed onto the CNC machine for precision cutting!

-The toy parts are then ready for hand finishing and assembly. 

 

 

  

- The toys are then routered, sanded and finished with child-safe oil/wax, to enhance the features of the wood and ply.

- The final stage is putting the product together ready for shipping!
