What other products will you be bringing to market in 2023
In 2023 we’re so excited to share our biggest and most exciting collection yet. To celebrate our 10 year anniversary, we are adding a limited edition plush to our plush character collection.
2023 will also see the launch of our new baby range, Little Wren. The collection features brand-new artwork of baby animals and all the products are of the highest quality. We are also proud to announce our partnership with Eden Reforestation Projects so we can plant a tree for every baby grow sold to celebrate the new birth.
Following the success of our recent craft collection, we are thrilled to launch our beautiful paint by numbers. The detailed nature of Hannah’s artwork made it a huge challenge to translate into a limited number of paint colours but team have done a wonderful job in creating a product that allows anyone to create their own Wrendale masterpiece.
We have more gorgeous greeting cards (our collection is ever-growing) and colourful new additions to our other best-selling collections.
