Award-winning toy brand, Little Brian, is to exhibit at the ever popular Gloworm Festival.

The festival, which takes place over August, 19th and 20th, at Clumber Park in Nottingham, will see the brand exhibit its impressive range of Paint Sticks.

As well as fun and games, children will be able to try their hand at using the Classic, Metallic and Day Glow Paint Sticks on the Little Brian stand.

Lara Alcock, sales and marketing Director at Little Brian said: “We’re delighted to be exhibiting at Gloworm Festival 2017, make sure you pop by to say Hi and have some fun on our stand too; and who knows, there may be a chance to win some of our fabulous products that weekend too!”

“The reports we received on the 2016 festival were outstanding so we thought we had to be at the 2017 festival. We’re extremely excited to see the thousands of people that attend, the atmosphere is supposed to be superb and we can’t wait to hit the road and set up our stand!”

“Our products are suitable for children of all ages and families so the Gloworm Festival is an ideal fit and I am sure the whole festival itself will prove to be a huge success.”

Coming on the toy scene just last year, Little Brian’s Paint Sticks provide a clean and convenient way to paint with no need for brushes or water or the mess that comes with it. The solid Paint Sticks twist up and down like a glue stick, and allow vivid colours to be transferred directly onto surfaces like canvas, wood, paper, card and even glass drying within minutes of use.

The launch year proved to be an extremely successful one for Little Brian, scooping three awards. Paint Sticks was the winner of the Creative Play category in the Practical Pre-School Awards, gold award winner in the Creative Play category at the Primary Teacher Update Awards and winner of the Painting and Colouring Materials category for four to seven year olds at the Creative Play Awards; to which the brand fought off tough competition from popular brand Crayola and Paint Sticks were also crowned The Independent’s Best Buy for four-year-olds.

This year has certainly started on a high for Little Brian with Paint Sticks being shortlisted as finalists in the Education Resources Awards and being awarded Gold in the Arts and Crafts category at the Bizzie Baby Awards.
