Easter page in our shop

Some of our customers have been asking us about Easter products, so today we released our Easter page on modes4u.com. Until the middle of April you can find all our products, which are connected to Easter and spring in this category. That means lots of bunny and chick items, but also lots of pretty flower and spring designs which make you look forward to that season. A lot of deco tapes, fabrics and stamps will provide good material for your art&craft projects that you are planning for that holiday. We also added some products, that we think might be a unique gift idea such as DIY clay sets for example.

Of course we will expand the category if we have more products that fit into it. Have fun rummaging in our Easter page.

Happy Australia Day

Dear Australian customers: A very happy Australia Day to you! To everybody else: Even if you’re not from Australia and have never heard about this day before, enjoy learning a little bit about January 26th. Because every year Australia celebrates on its national day the anniversary of the arrival of the First Fleet of 11 convict ships from Great Britain at Sydney Cove in 1788. It is one of the largest annual public events in the whole country, as there are many celebrations such as concerts, barbecues, festivals and fireworks. It is very popular to relax with family and friends on that day or to visit one of the numerous activities going on throughout the country.

We hope you have a nice day and a good party. In honor of the Australian National Day we today celebrate the most Australian symbol we could find in our shop: Our little koala bear eraser.

Our erasers in German Nido magazine

What a funny idea. Our cute teeth erasers were published in the december issue of German magazine Nido with kind of an educational mission. Nido is a lifestyle magazine for young parents and introduced the teeth erasers on their products page as a funny example of how you can teach your children what happens if you don’t brush your teeth. Not a bad idea, don’t you think?
