The Little Experience Kits

New at Yarns By Design

The Little Experience Kits for Kids


Video games and other electronic toys might be all the rage, but kids still enjoy creative toys. Arts and crafts are at the heart of The Little Experience. Created in 2002, this UK business has grown from its humble beginnings. It has been nominated for numerous awards and has been the recipient of the Startups Awards Micro Business of the Year.

Parents introducing their kids to The Little Experience will be pleased with the selection that they'll find at Yarns By Design. We have a number of different kits to choose from. These kits are fun and creative and are ideal for both boys and girls.

Are you ready to show your kids a whole new way of having fun? Selecting the perfect toy from The Little Experience is as simple as knowing what your kids enjoy the most. You can stop by or place your order today at the Yarns By Design boutique.
