Make your own Matryoshka competition

The winning entries from our ‘Make Your Own Matryoshka’ Competition. Congratulations to Olivette, Ruby and Evelyn (it was too difficult to choose between the two sisters’ entries so they both scored a prize!) A creative use of papier mache and paint. And Olivette’s knitted set is very cute.

New Stock

Well the Czech Marionettes are in the shops now and we’ve just received a new delivery of traditional Matryoshka from Russia which is making it into the shops over the next few days. Shortly we’ll receive some more Marionettes from Germany and France.

European products

A small sampling of some of the new products we’ll have in the stores this year, from the Nuremberg Toy Show, the Frankfurt Xmas Show and a short trip to Poland. We will be getting some Marionettes from the Czech republic as well.

Emailed receipts

We’re in the process of installing a facility for emailing receipts for purchases. It’s proving a little difficult to set up but we should have it working this week.

New Stock Arriving DAILY

Well the new stock is in the shops and best of all there’s been a price reduction on some of the stock due to the lower prices from one of our suppliers and the strong Australian dollar.

The internet site will be updated with the new prices in the next few days.
