By | Events, Press articles, Simbrix News | No Comments

We love Simbrix and know they create so much joy for those that play with them. But during this festive season, but it a tough world, not everyone gets wonderful gifts from those that love them. So Simbrix wants to you to nominate someone that has impressed you as to receive a gift of a Simbrix kit, that could not otherwise get a kit. As we approach the festive season and prepare for the happy times of celebration, we are reminded there are many amongst us that still struggle financially. Not all children will receive the latest toys or smartphone,…

Meeting the real people behind the blogosphere

By | Events | One Comment

How much do we rely upon the reviews, feedback and advice of others when we decide to make a purchase of something we have yet seen, tried or tested ourselves? For me, 90% of the time I am buying any non food or clothing item, I will scour the internet for someones review of the item that is within the target of my Visa card or Paypal account. I’m a fan of Amazon, not for the low prices, or fast delivery option (but that is very handy sometimes) but for the feedback and reviews left for most of the products…

Spring Fair: Our Retrospective

By | Events | No Comments

What is the Spring Fair? Held at the NEC in Birmingham, which is like a cross between an exhibition centre and  an airport, the Spring Fair is where all kinds businesses find leads for the coming year. We found everything from greeting cards, movie memorabilia and furniture to Christmas-music-playing automata. We were in Hall 5, which was dedicated to toys, games and gadgets, and where you had to watch out for swooping drones and the occasional businessman test-driving a skateboard. What Happened? For the 6 days of the fair, we had a steady stream of visitors who stopped to take a closer look at…

Simbrix at Sneinton Market

By | Events | No Comments

It was a wet and windy Saturday morning. You could feel the cold in your bones. Getting out of bed was a struggle in itself. I looked out the window at the grim surroundings. But then a nerve of energy burnt through, we were showing off Simbrix today. It had been a while since the last event. So the nervousness bubbled a little bit. We’d been through quite a journey since the last one, so we were going wiser and stronger or so we’d hope. We had a stall at Sneinton Market for Nottingham Creative Fringe. We were freezing as…

Autumn Fair at Greens Windmill!!!

By | Events | No Comments

Saturday 8th of November 2014! Rain! Again! A typical British morning. No surprises there. We set up our table in Greens Windmill venue without any huge expectations. “The rainy weather will keep people inside” we all thought. We had stalls all around, some delicious cupcakes directly opposite particularly caught our attention and we began to believe we’d have a tough day ahead of us trying not to give in to the temptation of chocolatey treats. Suddenly, emerging from the rain soaked grounds were people! children, adults, people of all ages, everywhere! Our temptations for sweets and our fear of the…

Simbrix meets teenagers!

By | Events | One Comment

This week, we had the pleasure of visiting a local secondary school and trying out Simbrix on a group of teenagers. Through the many events that we have attended, we’ve generally had a positive reception from children and adults alike. Working with teenagers on the other hand – we would be lying if we said we weren’t sure what the reception would be like!     Thankfully, we had nothing to worry about and it was really amazing to see the pupils from Year 7 right through to the sixth form really engaging with Simbrix. One boy noted: ‘I think…
