Christmas With Stripes!

We promised you some exciting festive news a few months ago… and here it is!

Stripy Horse will be appearing on his own range of Christmas cards and wrap this year. Karen has been busy creating new seasonal artwork of your favourite horse, so soon you’ll find him hanging up his stocking and delivering presents on cards from the Great British Card Company or juggling baubles and building a snowman on wrap and gift bags from Penny Kennedy Ltd. Here a few pictures – ‘Ho, ho, ho!’ We’re tickled pink with the results!

Both cards and wrap should be available this month from independent stockists and the Garden Centre Group. There are only 72 days until Christmas – time to get wrapping!

As Easy as ABC…

Karen has been busy working on a fantastic, interactive letter-linking ABC book with Lee Singh. ‘ABC and Do’ follows Mouse, as he spins, flips, lifts and pulls his way through the alphabet! Have a look at some of the amazing pages below:

Stripy Horse doesn’t appear, but you might be able to spot a black and white relation of his at the very end…

There’s a lovely review of the book here and you can buy it at your local book shop or online here.

Hot Summer Stripes!

Phew! What a scorcher this summer is turning out to be! We hope you’re enjoying all the sunshine as much as Stripy Horse – lets hope it lasts a bit longer.

Next time we should have some exciting news for you on Stripy Christmas things, but its much too warm to be thinking about that now. We’d rather be eating ice cream. YUM!

Hello to Northwold!

What a great time we had at Northwold Primary last week! All the children had been busy making masks, so when we arrived we found a school full of lovely Stripy Horses. Here are just a few of them… fantastic!

Thank you ‘clip clops’ to Literacy Co-ordinator, Katherine Blackman and Head Teacher, Alison Kriel for inviting us along, and for everyone there who made our day so special. As well as masks, there were lots of imaginative stories for us to read and some very colourful pictures. One of the teachers had even drawn an extra-large Stripy Horse, here it is below, Karen was super impressed!
