Our aim is to be 'The Experts in Children's Table Top Activities'.
Headed up by myself and my husband Michael from our office in Towcester Mill, the Crafti's team now supplies over 16 million child-related products a year to many high profile businesses throughout the UK, ranging from John Lewis, TGI Fridays, Virgin, Haven, Oxo Tower Restaurant and Center Parcs to the NHS and automotive brands.
How it all began....
Over 12 years ago I started carrying activity products to entertain my children, now 15 and 11, in restaurants. I realised that how children behave in restaurants is key to the dining experience and set about selling the idea to businesses serving food.
I was frustrated at the lack of provision for children. I like to introduce a creative activity and keep them off electronic devices as it’s important for children to still be able to do a dot to dot or a crossword. We also think manners are hugely important, we like our children to be mindful of where they are, particularly at the table. From this idea the original Bizzi Bag was born and Crafti's started to do business from my kitchen table.
I made a trip to China to source a factory to produce our bags and hired a container on a local farm to stock the products. The storage space, along with the business, grew rapidly as many high profile businesses throughout the UK quickly recognised the value of their family-friendly offering. Five years ago my husband Michael joined the business full-time as CEO and our office team has grown to 14 plus our logistics and warehouse team based in Felixstowe.
Many of the team, including myself, have young children, helping us to create products and designs that truly excite your young visitors. We also have a team dedicated to design and product research, meaning we can create totally bespoke products or designs to meet your requirements. My daughters have also given so much input at every stage over the years, keen to offer help from a child's perspective which is invaluable.
We look forward to hearing from you to discuss your plans and are 100% confident Crafti's can help provide the perfect solution.
